Wayne Harley taking part in D-J Run 2018

Last year FMM curator Wayne Harley fulfilled a dream on when he took part in the Durban to Johannesburg Motorcycle Rally – the D-J Run – riding the ex-Ian Brodie 1934 Triumph 350 3/1 sponsored by Marius Malherbe. On March 9-10 this year he will be having a recurring dream when he again will take part on this legendary 700 km reliability and regularity trial riding the Triumph. But he is hoping for better fortune as in 2017 weather hampered his pre-event preparation, his entry number plate was missing so he had to make up one using a blank and some black tape, the bike’s amp gauge fell off and time was lost trying to find it, fuel starvation caused the bike to stall when going up steeper hills, a rear-view mirror fell off and a bit of the seat broke… However, Wayne managed to perform running repairs and finished 61st, a position he is planning to improve upon in 2018.
