The Think Bike campaign is funded solely through the generosity of sponsors, donations, the sale of branded merchandise items and membership. Offering membership plays a critical part in raising awareness of the campaign in the biking and wider community and provides Think Bike with a much-needed income to be able to print safety information pamphlets, banners and stickers.
By joining the campaign as a Member, not only do you contribute funding to Safety and Awareness campaigns in South Africa, but you also become eligible to enjoy several other benefits that are offered exclusively to Think Bike members. These are, to name a few:
- 10% Discount at Guts & Gas Motorcycle Accessories
- 15% Discount at Xkulcha Adventure Apparel
- 10% Discount at Motorcycle Safety Institute (Training)
How much is Membership?
The Membership Fee is payable annually.
- New: R250
- Renew: R200
Do members also have to be volunteers?
Apart from contributing funding that we hope will ultimately lead towards the creation of a safer riding environment, there is no other time or effort required from your side.
Is membership only open to SA ID holders?
Yes, all South African citizens are welcome to join the campaign.

Is membership to the campaign the same as being a registered user on the Think Bike Forum?
No, while the Forum is the communication platform for the supporters and members of Think Bike, members are not required to be Forum users, nor are Forum users required to be members. A separate registration is required to become an active Forum user and those Forum users that are also Think Bike campaign members are recognised by the member badge that appears above their avatars.
