Johannesburg - Every bike is an extension of its owner's personality; the stronger that personality and the events that shape it, the stronger the statement it makes.
Leigh Hammond lived a regular Joburg life - working 9 to 5, exercising regularly and spending tine with his family. Then he was diagnosed with stage four cancer, and everything changed.
It took 18 months of gruelling chemotherapy sessions, enforced inactivity and two major surgeries before Hammond went into remission - and he reckons he wouldn't have made it without the steadfast support of family, friends and a medical team that went way beyond the call of duty.
You can never repay that kind of support, he says, but he's determined to show how much he values them by making the most of every moment, for the rest of his life.
