This past weekend saw the second instalment of the South African Bike Festival powered by Discovery Channel, and what a weekend it was! Two-wheeled motoring fans gathered in their thousands at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit to take up the opportunity to view, learn, try, test, ride and buy from the vast array of manufacturers and exhibitors that were showcasing their wares, as well as enjoy a number of other spectacles on offer at the festival.
