members of a family, young & old to
any function or VOG event. Additional
family members also come by car
-lovingly referred to as a "cage"!

Q) Do you have to enroll as a couple?
A) No, one family member (owner)
will enroll as principal member and
other member/s of a household
share that membership.The partner
or family member that owns their
own Vee may however choose
to have their own membership listing.

Q) Is VOG an elitist group?
A) No, see us rather as a family
oriented group where a full spectrum of
bike-minded persons from all walks of life
join in fellowship and common interest.
Creed, culture, religion, ethnic, professional,
artisan, learned or unlearned persons from
our VOG family are all equal in ownership.
VOG have retired persons, housewives,
farmers, mariners,owners of companies,
project managers, doctors, pastors, fashion
designers, social workers etc in our
membership. Our structure has EXCO members
who fulfil specific functions -but are considered
servant leaders rather than hierarchic figures.

Q) We hear VOG is very safety conscious?
A) Yes, safety for riders and motorists
means everything to VOG.

Q) As a novice rider, can I join VOG?
A) VOG nurtures the growth of all its members,
encouraging advanced bikemanship & road-sense in all
conditions. So yes! A novice may
apply for membership provided he
or she owns a vee-engined bike and is
licensed to ride.

Q) Does VOG have rules?
A) Yes, very much so! Any entity
requires rules to protect it's
existence & continuance, just
as a home does.

Q) Will I be forced to attend runs and rallies?
A) VOG does not impose or
obligate anyone in either of these
aspects. How could we? We have
members in far out places who remain
loyal over the years - they belong even
when we don't see them often. The
VOG website catalogues our activities
and keeps members in touch and our
VOG Group Facebook pages are where
members can interact.

Q) If I join, is there a period of
apprenticeship where I may not wear a patch
while I am a junior member?

A) No! Ownership qualifies you for membership.
Once you have enrolled, you qualify for a patch immediately
and will be just as equal as the member who has just earned
his 10 -year membership badge!

Q) Will information I give in joining be kept confidential?
A) VOG does not pass member
information onto 3rd parties so
your details are secure.

Q) Do you think I will fit in?
A) If you have family values and
enjoy wholesome social interaction
you will likely find new and lasting
friendships in VOG. Come along on
a run or two and get a feel of VOG
and it's culture & values.
