The BMW Safari is one of the world’s longest running and most successful BMW Motorrad events. First held in 1994 the Safari has continued to grow in popularity amongst BMW riders. In 2005 the Safari was split into separate GS and TS events. This has allowed the BMW GS Safari to offer even more GS specific off-road adventure for riders of the top selling, Unstoppable, BMW GS models.
The 2012 BMW GS Safari will set out from Ballina in the Northern Rivers region of NSW on Sunday September 16 and head off into The Great Dividing Range for an off-road GS odyssey that will conclude in Bathurst on Friday September 21.
From the coast at Ballina the BMW GS Safari will zig and zag the Great Dividing Range. Riders will receive daily route sheets, GPS details and even route marking arrows to show the way. There will be full technical support along the way in case of mechanical or other problems.
The scenery will be ever changing, as will the roads. Towering eucalypt and rain forests with lush vegetation through to open farmland with many iconic and historic towns and locations along the way. For BMW GS riders it will be heaven on a stick.
As a skills brush-up there will be a 2-day pre-Safari off road rider training course, so this will run in the days just prior to the event.
General Manager BMW Motorrad, Australia and New Zealand, Tony Sesto is looking forward to the BMW GS Safari.
“The GS Safari is a great event and gives the opportunity for all BMW GS riders to enjoy magnificent riding country in the company of like minded enthusiasts. Last year the limited places filled quickly, so I would advise riders to avoid disappointment by registering as soon as possible”, said Tony.
Registrations will open on Tuesday May 1.
