The Moth Motorcycle Association’s (MMA) Platinum Chapter celebrated its third birthday with a bash at the Warriors Arms Club in Muldersdrift on Saturday 15 February, drawing a large crowd of bikers and biker associations.

In an interview with the NEWS, MMA Platinum Chapter Vice Chairman Shaun Heydenreich shared some information about the bikers who have been riding together for the past three years and how the group had started.

“The Moth Motorcycle Association was launched in Cape Town by a group of Moths with a common interest in biking.

“Based on the fact that there are a considerable number of ex-military personnel on bikes who more than likely would qualify as Moths, this quite obviously was a marketing tool for the Moth to increase its membership.

“The MMA grew rapidly and soon MMA Platinum was born. And now three years later we celebrate our third birthday,” he says.

The bash, says Shaun, was a huge success, surpassing all expectations. It was held in true festive Moth fashion with good food, good music and fun for all, and even a Moth recruiting desk.

Almost 450 people attended the event to take part in games, enjoy a live band and big screen sports, and browse through the many stalls set up on the day.

Funds raised through the bash will be used to upgrade local Moth cottages.
