BMW safaris take a cruisy turn

Soulful Escape tour on R 18 and R nineT

the all-new 2022 BMW Transcontinental, being ridden by a pair of riders

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

Last year the German company returned to cruisers after several years with the release of their massive R 18 boxer cruiser.

So now they have offered a special “cruisy” safari option called the ‘SoulFuel Escape’ on March 2-6, 2022.

The four-day, five-night tour will take in the scenic roads between Windsor on Sydney’s Northside to Port Macquarie. A very relaxed cruise, indeed!

Bookings go on sale this Thursday (27 January) at 9am AEDT. If it’s like their other safaris, it will sell out quickly with numbers limited to just 30.

The tour is not only open to R 18 customers, but also potential customers who can hire one, as well as owners of the R nineT models. Only 18 hire bikes are available.

It’s a great way to do a long test ride before you buy!

It’s not cheap, though, at $A3999 for the rider, $4899 with a pillion and R 18 hire costing $1000.

For that you get:

  • 5 Nights of “premium accommodation”;
  • Daily planned routes with lead and sweep riders;
  • Technical support;
  • Luggage transfer so you don’t need panniers;
  • A rider pack of “goodies”;
  • All breakfasts and dinners; and
  • Two custom experience activities.

We’re not sure what the last one means, but it should be good.
