BMW Motorrad launches 2019 GS Experience and GS Events
BMW Motorrad has launched exciting line-ups for both the GS Experience and GS Events programmes for 2019, with the GS Experience to be held across three different states this year, with events in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
The GS Events line-up, meanwhile, caters to capable GS owners with three exciting outings on the 2019 roster – the GS Safari Enduro, the GS Tour: Simpson Crossing, and the GS Trophy National Qualifier.
“It’s a remarkable programme of events we have on offer throughout 2019,” said BMW Motorrad General Manager, Andreas Lundgren. “For riders looking to put our excellent GS range through its paces in real-world conditions, the GS Experience events are the perfect opportunity.

“The GS Safari and GS Tour: Simpson Crossing both present once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to ride through the Australian outback, while the GS Trophy National Qualifier will determine who joins Team Australia at the 2020 International GS Trophy in New Zealand.”
