Joe & Diana are married and run Due South Motorcycle Tour based in Cape Town, South Africa. We offer a brand of motorcycle tours based on the simple premise that most people prefer riding in small uncluttered groups and enjoy the freedom of the open road with like-minded people.
Joe is a born and bred local with 11 years touring experience riding around South Africa. Grew up in Johannesburg and recently relocated to Cape Town.
Diana hails from Berlin in Germany where she has spent most of her adult life after growing up in a small village, she recently relocated to South Africa.
We would like to invite you for a motorcycle touring experience that offers diversity of scenery, amazing wildlife excursions and superb riding...
Joe and Diana reside in Bloubergstrand alongside beautiful Table Bay with Cape Town and Table Mountain our homes foreground. Diana will assist with German enquiries and translation. Situated at the end of the African continent South Africa offers motorcyclists unparalleled riding conditions and opportunities.
Jurg, our associate, acting as agent and contact within the Swiss motorcycling fraternity is based in Somerset West, when not riding his 'Guzzi', operates a guesthouse along with Constance.
Joe established Due-South Motorcycle Tours back in 2007 as a method of blurring the lines between work and play. Riding several thousand kilometres each year taking every opportunity to get out of the big city in order to ride the brilliant roads South Africa is blessed with. You are invited to come along on such a special ride...
Our motorcycling ethos lends itself to avoidance of the usual tourist traps while focusing on the purity of riding a superb motorcycle in a small intimate group whilst traversing of the planets most superlatively diverse landscapes. Enjoying excellent and diverse accommodation with good food and a beer or two in the evenings… often a bottle of quality SA wine has been known to be enjoyed…
Sharing a motorcycle trip with like-minded people adds to the overall enjoyment. Memories are made of this...
Reasons given for choosing a specific operator are many and varied. Hopefully the set below will strike a chord with you and you will choose Due South based on our uncomplicated and simplistic outlook on motorcycle touring:
Joe guides each tour and prides himself on offering an overall package which will ensure the rider and pillion leave this beautiful country with fond memories and an itch to get back for more.
Riding with Due South will allow you to enjoy the experience gathered over the past decade ensuring you enjoy the best routes, best sights and best stops en route. We expose you to the quaint local spots many tourist simply miss out on. You will not feel like a tourist!
We avoid the regimented “formula” mentality so often associated with the overly commercial motorcycle tour offerings; which unfortunately have become commonplace.
The bikes are all current model and low mileage making for superb, reliable riding.
We recognise that overnight stops and meals are an event in themselves. The spots are all handpicked and unpretentious; rather designed for a great overnight experience as opposed to sterile ’hotel’ stop.
This point cannot be overemphasised... All tours are capped at 7 bikes (unless a group booking), this ensures the overall experience for all is enhanced; encouraging great camaraderie and high spirits. Experienced riders, newbies and pillions alike are comfortable with the pace and experience overall.
