I keep whining about how I don’t get to do any riding because of work, but I just got invited on this…
BMW GS Safari Enduro – A Little Further off the Beaten Track
In late October two BMW GS Safari events will embark on a lap of the
Victorian Alps. When bookings went live in May, the regular GS Safari event
sold out in 3 days, with over 200 entrants and a lengthy waiting list. To
cater to the incredible demand, BMW Australia announced that a second event
will take place. Called the BMW GS Safari Enduro, this new safari will run
the following week with a modified route that will suit more experienced
off-road adventure riders.
The final recce ride has just taken place to map both routes and from all
accounts both rides will be epic. Both events start at Merrijig at the base
of Mt Buller and over the course of 5 days, take in some of the iconic areas
of Victoria’s Alpine region. Following rivers, cresting alpine passes and
visiting some very out of the way areas, riders will be treated to some
incredible riding and scenery.
Here’s some pics from the recce…
Awesome. And the bike’s an F 800 GS Adventure. I’m melting with desire here.
