One World, One R 1200 GS footage from around the world
At the beginning of January, we brought you information about BMW’s “One World, One R 1200 GS” challenge, where five riders won the chance to take a 2013 GS on the trip of a lifetime. The trips took the five winners on five routes, through Laos, New Zealand, South Africa, America, and Europe. In other words, perfect landscapes to explore on a GS.
The rides ended early March, and now all the footage and photography has been compiled and put on BMW’s website about the event.
Metzeler played a big part in the success of the event. The new GS comes stock with Tourance Next tires, which the riders all had a chance to test. When the trails got steep and loose, riders swapped to the Karoo 3, an off-road capable tire that can stand up to big, powerful enduros like the GS.
Check out all the footage at BMW’s site.
