    BMW Motorrad seeks five adventure riders for the ultimate round-the-world test ride.

    Five riders will take the new R 1200 GS across five continents on an all-expenses-paid trip of a lifetime.


    BMW Motorrad is offering adventure motorcycle riders the chance to take the all-new 2013 R 1200 GS on a round-the-world overland expedition, taking in five continents on its “One World. One R 1200 GS.” tour. Each of the five riders, selected by a panel of experts, will ride one of the legs through their chosen continent.

    To earn their place on the unprecedented “One World. One R 1200 GS.” expedition, motorcyclists are invited to tell BMW Motorrad why they would make the perfect ambassador for the new R 1200 GS.

    A jury of international VIPs and motorcycle adventurers will select five riders from around the world, based on their motorcycling experience, ambitions, attitude and, above all, their passion for two-wheeled adventure. The five appointed ambassadors will be among the first people to ride the highly-anticipated next generation GS ahead of its international launch in March 2013.

    The “One World. One R 1200 GS.” adventure, the first project of its kind in the world, will see the 2013 GS travel through New Zealand, Asia, South Africa, America and Europe between December and March 2013, exploring ancient monuments and vibrant, modern cities via trail and tarmac.

    Tony Jakeman, marketing manager for BMW Motorrad UK, said: “The all-new R 1200 GS has set the bar higher than ever for adventure sports motorcycles. With its new engine and class-leading innovations, including Dynamic-ESA semi-active suspension, it is more capable than ever. We believe the R 1200 GS can tackle just about anything the world can throw at it.

    “BMW Motorrad created the “One World. One GS.” campaign to exemplify everything the GS brand stands for, giving five inspirational adventure riders the opportunity to take part in a continent-crossing expedition. The new GS will be put through its paces on some of the toughest terrain in the world, and give five riders the adventure of a lifetime.”


    How to take part.
    This amazing expedition is open to all riders aged 21 and over, who have held a full motorcycle licence for at least one year. To enter, riders are invited to fill in a form including a short paragraph (around 150 words) about themselves, hoping to catch the attention and imagination of the judges.

    Riders from the UK and Ireland can enter via www.bmw-motorrad.co.uk. The closing date for entries is 30 November 2012.
