What is the BMW Safari? The BMW Safari is an event run by BMW Motorrad Australia
The BMW Safari concept began 20 years ago as a non-competitive motorcycle riding event designed to cater specifically to riders of BMW Motorcycles. It is unique to Australia and there are now three different flavours of the Safari – the “TS Safari” for road bikes, the “GS Safari” for off-road machines like the legendary R 1200 GS, and as of 2013 we saw the introduction of the GS-Enduro Safari which is a slightly harder trip than the standard GS Safari.
The BMW Safari typically runs as a touring style event for 5 days staying in a different location each night. The kilometres covered each day varies between about 200 – 500 kilometres so riding time could be up to 8 – 9 hours on some days. It is not a guided tour but the route is pre-ridden in the lead up to the event and full route maps and GPS tracks are created. Lead riders head out early in the morning ahead of the pack to arrow mark the route and check road conditions in case of any major hazards en-route.
BMW Safari also offers a 2 day Pre-Safari Off Road Training course held on the weekend of the Safari start date.
