2019 BMW GS SAFARI
Initial planning is now underway for next year’s GS Safari. Information, including all dates and the location will be updated to this page as soon as this information becomes available.
The GS Safari group is a diverse bunch from all walks of life. At most events we have a great mix of returning riders and Safari first timers. There are old and young, father and son and a growing number of female riders. Many lifelong friendships begin on Safari and the spirit of helping each other out is amazing. Everyone is welcome, as long as you’re riding a GS!
BMW SAFARI SUPPORT TEAM
Perfected since 1994 there is a large crew on hand to help you enjoy your adventure without the fuss and stress of planning, organising and supporting your own ride. Recent Safaris have also included information sessions and practical demonstrations at the end of the day on topics like; tyre changing, GPS navigation and emergency satellite communications.
The BMW Safari team do all the planning, manage bookings, provide pre-event information and ensure that during the event everything runs smoothly. We pride ourselves on providing a unique Safari experience for everyone!
Highly qualified on bike medical support provides peace of mind in case things don’t go to plan. Other members of the team are qualified first aiders and carry satellite phones and emergency beacons (Spots etc).
Our BMW qualified tech support team are on hand to help when needed. This includes a sweep vehicle as well as an on bike technician.
BMW Safari look after your tyres with our dedicated tyre support vehicle and crew. Tyres can be pre-purchased and fitted at the start or during the event. Emergency tyre repairs are easily taken care of on-route or at the end of the day.
Having your luggage transported each day has real advantages. Removing the added weight of luggage from your bike during the event is a huge plus, especially when terrain become challenging.
Sometimes riding to and from the Safari is an event in itself. For those that are time poor we can arrange bike transport enabling you to fly in and out of the event. Transport suppliers are BMW approved to ensure your motorcycle arrives in tip top shape, ready for an amazing ride.
BMW OFF ROAD TRAINING
There is nothing quite like professional rider training to sharpen your skills for a week of adventure riding. At the 2019 GS Safari we will again offer a pre-event 2-day training course. The course is run by BMW’s legendary Off Road Training team and caters for riders of all levels.
