Bikers last ride to the Hereafter…

first_imgWebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite Hundreds of people attended the funeral of 25-year-old Kaveer ‘Gymboz’ Ramdin today (Saturday, November 8).Bikers from throughout Northern KwaZulu-Natal were there to pay their respects. There was revving of engines and throttling of gears as fellow bikers rode along the streets from Kaveer’s home in Balsam Avenue to the EBC Church in Bengal Road and then to the cemetery as part of the bike procession. The casket was pulled on a trailer by a Harley Davidson.Speaking on behalf of fellow bikers, Mohammed Motala said, “We are all very sad. Gymboz was our road captain and whenever there were rides, he always led the crew and made sure the roads were safe for us. He will be missed and riding will never be the same.” Kaveer lost his life in a tragic motorbike crash on Wednesday. The young man and a fellow biker went out for a ride along De Beers Pass (Ingula road) when the accident happened. This section of road is not often used by bikers, but it is enjoyed on the odd occasion because it is well-maintained and has “good corners”.Kaveer is described as a guy who never caused trouble and got involved in different groups/clubs. He rode with everyone who was available at the time – “be it rain, cold or nighttime, nothing could stop him.” Bikers recall his famous quote when someone would ask him how his ride was. Kaveer would always answer, “In the G.”Known as Gymboz by his fellow riders, Kaveer owned a 2009 GSXR 1000 motorbike and has been riding since he was in Grade 10 (11 years). He has been to the Pongola Cane Rally and the Poison Rally. “He lived to ride and rode to live.”Kaveer ‘Gymboz’ Ramdin will be dearly missed by his mother, brothers, sister and fiancé.last_img read more
