2014 BMW F800GS ADVenture


F800GS-Adventure

I was at my dealer the other day and speaking with Sheldon, the informative and more than a sales guy we buy our ADV bikes from…and he was telling more about his father who bought the F800 ADV model.  Sheldon tells me and I have heard this from other owners, that the ADV F8 is certainly worth the extra coin.  If Cheryl and I were going to buy again, and if this version was out we would have bought it over the standard GS.  Why?  The extra’s BMW have added to this bike as well as the larger tank seem to actually work…such as the almost upright touring shield.  I hear that it actually works for many riders of all sizes and has a great mounting location for your GPS.   Continue reading

OK this is really taking a motorcycle to the extreme as a cross over vehicle…it’s probably one of the coolest, weirdest concepts I have seen….in a good way.

Dual Sport Riding Technique: Sitting position vs. Standing (Pros)

Posted by Eric Lange on Wed, Dec 12, 2012 @ 09:47 PM

Dual Sport RidingWith the world of dual sport riding booming each year, adventure riders are heading out in droves to test their skills both on and off road.  As the less experienced riders first start to experiencing the changing terrain, weather conditions, and speeds, the question keeps coming up: “Should I be sitting or standing when I’m off road?” Continue reading

Paul from Touratech thoughts on the New 2013 BMW F800GS


Thursday, 29 November 2012 12:46 Paul Guillien and Staff
I really like how Paul describes this bike of ours.  I agree with everything he says and although we have not taken this bike off road yet I know we agree with his assessment as well. When he states the bike has a lean look that is one thing we LOVE about the BMW.
I should and probably will review the BMW 650, Triumph Tiger 800XC and compare it to the new BMW F800.

Paul Guillien, Touratech-USA’s General Manager, shares his thoughts on BMW’s updated mid-weight adventure bike, the 2013 F800GS. Continue reading

Extreme off-road riding with Triumph’s Tiger 800XC


Watch two wicked tricked out Triumph Tiger 800XC bikes do crazy stuff….ICON video!  Like a little movie!  Pretty good! You need to make time and sit through this whole video…seriously, a little corny at the beginning but there are amazing shots of this bike and the riders doing incredible things with a large ADV bike!

ICON Motosport challenged Triumph’s Tiger 800XC and riders Nick Brocha and Ernie Vigil with its grueling “Portland to Dakar” challenge.  Beginning in the urban confines of Portland’s city limits, the Tiger 800XCs took both riders and their gear to the very limits of endurance with miles of asphalt, vertical faces of rock, endless stretches of soft sand and deep snow, plus more water landings than a Pacific campaign. The term dual-sport failed to even remotely describe their journey.

Two More Little Road and Off Road Trips Planned
