BMW Announces GS Enduro Safari

Tough tour for the talented off-roader

The recent 2016 BMW GS Safari was a huge success with 200 riders traversing the glorious off-roads of the Great Dividing Range around the NSW-Queensland border and hinterland. joins recall

Hardcore fans of German off-road riding have been hanging out for this one — the announcement of the 2022 BMW GS Safari Enduro event.

For more than two decades BMW Motorrad Australia has been operating road and off-road tours for customers, called safaris.

A fe years ago they split the GS Safari into a road/off-road tour and a hardcore off-road tour with special training requirements.

This year they also added a special “cruisy” safari option called the ‘SoulFuel Escape’ earlier this month for owners of their new R 18 cruisers and R nineT naked bikes.

But for the hardcore off-roading fan, the S Enduro Safari is the peak of adventure, challenge and fun.

The 2022 BMW GS Safari Enduro begins with our Pre-Safari dinner at Taronga Western Plains Zoo in the Central West NSW Town of Dubbo and ends seven days later in South Australia’s wine country at the Barossa Valley.

The mainly off-road route includes three days riding around the Flinders Ranges, including Wilpena Pound, Cameron Corner, Strezlecki Track, White Cliffs, Tibooburra and Arkaroola, staying two nights at Arkaroola Village.

The event is open only to skilled GS riders and you can sharpen your skills at a two-Day BMW GS Off Road Training Pre-Safari course, in Dubbo, before the Safari.

Ridewrs will need to be able to ride these big Bismarks through sand, so only the skilled and brave need apply.

Riders will be tackled with support vehicles and a luggage truck.

Registrations open on April 21, but you better be quick as places are limited and they go quickly. Click here to register.
