2015 GS Safari-Enduro

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

BMW have announced the 2015 GS Safari-Enduro “The Darling-Murray River Run” to be run on the 10-16 May 2015 starting from Bourke in New South Wales to Victor Harbour in South Australia.

The BMW GS Safari Enduro has been born out of the BMW GS Safaris as a result of demands for more demanding rides from more experienced riders. While the rides still have a high level of backup support the locations are more remote and an overnight stay may be swags instead of hotel rooms,

Bookings for the ride open on Tuesday 17 February. For more information go to www.bmwsafari.com/index/upcoming-events~2015-gs-safari-enduro

Get in early because these rides book out quickly.

Touratech BMW R1200GS Adventure Toolbox

Friday, February 6th, 2015

Touratech have just introduced a toolbox for the popular BMW R1200GS/R1200GS Adventure. The Touratech tool box is the ideal solution for the safe storage of small items on your GS.

The optimal utilisation of space on the vehicle allows tools, first-aid kit, breakdown kit and many other useful items to remain on the motorcycle permanently and without interfering.

They are always readily accessible, even when the cases are not mounted.

The 4.2 litre (approx) large storage space is protected against water spray and a large opening makes loading and unloading easy, even when the cases are mounted.

The lid can be removed completely for easier loading, while a safety mechanism prevents the loss of items.

The toolbox was developed specifically for the original BMW case carriers and matches the GS in materials and design. The perfect combination of stainless steel and plastic provides optimal stability and a look that is difficult to beat.

Even if the cases are not mounted, the Touratech toolbox is an absolute eye-catcher!

Details:

Using special clamps, the box can be mounted to the case carrier easily and very quickly. A protection cap on the lock against spray water provides permanent ease of use.
