Munich/Garmisch-Partenkirchen. BMW Motorrad once again offers its international fan community a program that is as diverse as its model range and as varied as the motorcyclists themselves. From the 1th of July 2016 there will be three days of motorcycling, celebrating and bike talk – not to mention plenty of opportunity to enjoy the good life in Bavarian style, of course.
The organisers have come up with lots of ideas again this year. The core activities will be the numerous on-road and off-road test rides using the current range of models. There will also be special panorama tours along dirt roads and forest tracks. For those who do not yet hold a motorcycle licence, the BMW Motorrad Days offer test training sessions under expert guidance.
The BMW Motorrad Days would not be complete without the parades: the Main Motorcycle Parade starts on Saturday at 12.30 pm (line-up from 12 midday). And theClassic Parade featuring motorcycle gems of every vintage, likewise a traditional feature, starts on Sunday at 12 midday.
And on the subject of classic vehicles: this year, the BMW Classic Tent focuses on the theme “Performance. In all disciplines”. The design study “BMW R5 Homage”can be admired in this tent, too – it is the bike that was recently premiered at the Concorso d’Eleganza at Lake Como. The VIP guest in the BMW Classic Tent will be racing legend Helmut Dähne, who will be available to sign autographs and talk to visitors.
Boxer Sprint over one furlong: in collaboration with MC Augsburg, the Glemseck 101 team and the motorcycle magazine MO, a new edition of the Boxer Sprint will be held in which 2 and 4-valve conversion bikes battle it out with one another. The contest starts on Saturday at 3 pm in St.-Martin-Straße.
For the first time there will be a GS Trophy Tent: featuring an exhibition on the previous GS Trophy events, this tent is also an information and contact centre for all off-road enthusiasts and former GS Trophy participants. The winning team of the International GS Trophy 2016 and the first International GS Trophy female team will also be there.
