WHAT IS THE BUBBLE RUN?
The Bubble Run is a traditional motorcycle run held once a year in December. This year’s event will take place December 16-20. The ride starts in JHB/Pretoria on the 16th, ride to Sabie that day, and return from Sabie on the 20th. Here’s our latest Bonafide Film of what to expect on the 2015 Bubble Run.

BACKGROUND OF THE BUBBLE RUN
Last December I set out with two friends (Leroy “Black” Tulip from Black Tulip Productions and Marnitz Venter from Old Skool Trading) for a 4 day road trip to an area of South Africa I had yet to experience, Sabie.
Coming from the states we have a motorcycle ride called the Gypsy Run that I’ve always wanted to do, but was never able to. So we decided to put together a tradition run that was similar but make it unique to South Africa.
A traditional run is geared toward the rider who feels out of place at a “major rally” or anywhere you find an excess of “LIVE TO RIDE” patches.
We faced a lot of rain, a lot of sun, all sorts of rad people, a handful of problems and best of all some absolutely amazing roads that blew my mind. Roads and sights that definitely rival where I’m from.
The rules for the trip were simple:
-Bring what you need for the trip on your bike
-No registration fee
-No sign up
-You are responsible for yourself
-Don’t be a dick
-Be respectful of other riders and people we meet
-Leave no man behind
-No patches allowed
-DONT DRINK AND RIDE
