Welcome to OSBM. We dedicate this project to the
bikers of the organized biking community of the Southern African continent.
This site serves as a reference to biking. You can call it a handbook or a help manual if you like. Whether you are new to the biking scene, or an old grey beard with many years behind you,
you'll find the content interesting and informative. This site can be properly viewed on desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones, so please feel free to share this URL with anybody who has
a device that has access to the Internet.
We have a lot of stuff packed into this site - from the
bikers code to
terminology. The drop menu's contain the links to most of the pages. We suggest you start by reading up on some
biking history, then proceed to understand what
organized biking is. Read about our controlling bodies and how to
contact them. We have a page specially for
new bikers. There is very interesting stuff about the
types of clubs as well as the duties of
club officers and even an example
constitution. Then there is very important stuff in the protocol pages. You must know how to start a
new club or
chapter. You also need to understand what
bad standing means and how
females fit into our community. Then you must know what a
hangaround and a
prospect are, as well as what a
patch over is. We even advise you on
behaviour at an event as well as how to choose a
rally. On our 'Media' drop down you'll find a
Road Captain Guide which is very useful. There are also a couple of
videos that you should watch.
Contact us if you have something we need to know. You can also read
more about OSBM.
To reinstate pride, honour, loyalty and respect into our biking community by:
- Providing a reference to the definition of biking
- Protecting and promoting the accepted traditions and protocols
- Providing guidance and education to those who are seeking to define themselves
We don't make rules or prescribe.
We provide guidelines and information.
