BMW Safari is heading south for the 2018 BMW GS Safari Enduro - Tasmania. From technical enduro trails, epic climbs, sandy beaches and the best tarmac in Australia, this ride will have it all.
Combined with stunning Tasmanian scenery, great people and close to 25 years of Safari knowledge and history, this is not an event that you want to miss.
The 2018 BMW GS Safari Enduro will run over the 15th - 19th of October 2018.
With a long and proud history dating back to 1994, Australia’s BMW Safaris are among the longest running BMW Motorrad customer rides in the world. The GS Safari Enduro was started in 2013 due to the overwhelming popularity of the regular GS Safari, to provide an additional challenge for skilled riders.
The GS Enduro is designed for riders with experience at riding adventure bikes on the dirt, and those that can handle more than just basic terrain. Ideally riders should have participated in a previous GS Safari, attended a BMW Off Road Rider Training course or have previous GS riding experience.
This years ride will see most participants disembark the Spirit of Tasmania to be greeted with a cooked breakfast and early morning riders briefing. From there, the ride will head in an anti clockwise direction around the state over the following 5 days, covering plenty of varied and challenging terrain. The ride will finish up on Friday night with a spectacular closing dinner in Launceston.
The GS Safari group is a diverse bunch from all walks of life. Everyone is welcome, as long as you’re riding a GS! Riders from around. This years event has 3 levels of accommodation with the Explorer package also including two nights of camping! Generally, we try to stay in comfortable motel style accommodation of 3 and 4 start quality.
There is nothing quite like high quality training to sharpen you up for a week of adventure riding. At this year’s GS Safari Enduro, we will again offer a 2 day off road training course, which will include valuable information and skills training to give you the best preparation for this enduro adventure. Off Road Training dates for this event will be the 13th - 14th of October at a location close to Devonport.
BMW Safari is an outlet for BMW riders that others envy. The riding is first class and the routes are remote. Be a part of the GS community and join us for an adventure of a lifetime.
