2012 BMW GS SAFARI


A bit of an advertisement for the 1200GS but watch the entire video and it will show you why we all should ride ADV bikes…LOVE the one grrl in this video and she tells the truth…we need more grrls riding on these bikes!  

170 riders on a 5-day adventure through NSW, the 2012 BMW GS Safari was a great success. See the BMW R 1200 GS in action along with other models from the legendary GS range.

‘Adventure Riding’


There has been a lot of talk recently about what the term ‘Adventure Riding’ really means. Is it blasting down a gravel highway on a fully loaded 1200cc motorcycle? Doing single track on a light enduro style motorcycle with nothing but a backpack? Or is it riding two-up with everything you own, ready to take on the next continent? We feel adventure riding is a way to exercise your creativity. It can be whatever you want it to be. So don’t let anyone tell you differently.

Taking a chance here!


Not trying to get political or even stir the pot….but this video is such a great display of relationships and love that I feel the need to share it.  Congrats to the Australians for putting this together but having said that…such a shame in this day and age we even question or criticize relationships between anyone who truly loves another.  Sorry for the break in adventure action but like I have said this is a BLOG about many things including raising awareness.

It’s TIME!
