2015 - 2017 BMW F 800 GS / F 800 GS Adventure

The lines between on- and off-road enthusiasts are becoming rather blurred nowadays, with a majority of major manufacturers having established themselves within the dual-sport/adventure bike sector. BMW is one such builder, and is even into its second generation of adventure bikes with the F 800 GS and F 800 GS Adventure. The former is more of a casual commuter / funbike, while the “Adventure” is geared toward touring and long-range work, and naturally, both come with the top-notch engineering one expects from BMW.

BMW Motorrad Announces Plan To Build All-Female Racing Team For 2016 GS Trophy Series

BMW Motorrad Announces Plan To Build All-Female Racing Team For 2016 GS Trophy Series

BMW Motorrad is taking an unprecedented - and admittedly awesome - step in putting together the first-ever all-female international Trophy team that will compete at the GS Trophy endurance race. The company behind the competition is calling on all women motorcycle riders to sign up for a chance to be part of a history-making team that will compete in the biennial racing series.

If this has the makings of an all-around good idea, it’s because it is. The GS Trophy has been around since 2008 and while a handful of women racers have competed in certain events in the past, none of them have made it into the finals, much less been part of an all-female team.

BMW hopes to change that with this announcement, knowing full well that the growth in the number of women riders has created more interest in the sport from the fairer gender. This watershed moment is now being put in place to firmly bring home that point.

According to BMW, all applications entered into the GS Trophy website be taken into consideration by a jury, who will then choose ten finalists who will travel to South Africa to compete in a special qualifier from September 9 to 16, 2015. The three female riders who show the most promise in these qualifiers will then be chosen to be part of the 2016 GS Trophy series.

Female riders, especially those with experience riding the BMW R1200GS or F800GS bikes, have until June 26, 2015 to fill out their applications on the GS Trophy site. Best not be tardy about this because you can expect a lot of female riders to vie for those precious qualifier slots.

Video: Chris McNeil Stunt Rides Up Hunter Mountain

Video: Chris McNeil Stunt Rides Up Hunter Mountain

Performing motorcycle stunts in closed circuits are dangerous enough in it of themselves. But Chris “Teach” McNeil is not your regular stunt rider.

Known mostly for his incredible exploits on a bike, McNeil, together with motorcycle jacket line Joe Rocket, recently took the challenge of going up to Hunter Mountain in New York using McNeil’s BMW F800GS.

While the video itself looks like a promotional clip to showcase Joe Rocket’s next generation Ballistic Revolution motorcycle - “it represents a series advancement so significant, it’s more Revolution than Evolution,” so says Joe Rocket - it also comes with an incredible array of motorcycle stunts that not a lot of people are capable of pulling of. McNeil even drives on whatever surface he finds himself in, wasting little time showing everyone why he’s earned the nickname “Teach”.

Mix in some scenic shots of Hunter Mountain and you have a video that accomplishes a lot in just a little over three minutes. We get to see Joe Rocket’s new digs, enjoy the breathtaking scenery of upstate New York, and most importantly, watch McNeil do what he does best.

Kind of makes you want to buy the jacket, zip up, and take a ride of your own, right? Then again, none of us have the skill and stunt-riding talent of Chris McNeil. We can buy the Joe Rocket, though. That’s the easy part. Doing those stunts? Not so much.

Recall issued for 2008 BMW F800 GS

Recall issued for 2008 BMW F800 GS

A problem related to the axle shaft wall thickness determined BMW of North America to recall model year 2008 F800 GS motorcycles. According to the German manufacturer, the axle shaft wall thickness may not have been manufactured according to specifications resulting into the possibility of the axle shaft to deform and increase the risk of accidents.

The correction consists in dealers inspecting the axle shaft assembly and replacing or repairing the necessary components free of charge. Although BMW has not yet started the owner notification schedule, all 2008 BMW F800 GS owners can call BMW at 1-800-831-1117 and see the solving of their possible problem from there.

Taking such a measure over a specific model does not necessarily mean that all bikes recalled are affected and that are imminent dangers riding down the streets, but that the manufacturer has a responsible approach towards their customer safety and try to exclude all possible risks of a crash due to mechanical failure.

Harrison Ford rides a BMW

Harrison Ford has recently been spotted riding his BMW F800GS R1200GS and it looks like he’s enjoying it a lot. Although not a notorious motorcyclist from Hollywood, Ford gives an important lesson of motorcycle safety as he wears the entire protective gear in a sunny day. The bike looks like brand new (or maybe it isn’t ridden that much as we all know how busy actors are) and the street tires show where Harrison Ford likes to ride most.

Finally, U.S. BMW Motorrad dealers get the much-awaited 2009 F 800 GS

BMW Motorrad’s Year of the Enduro Continues with the Arrival of a Powerful Dual-Purpose Twin
Woodcliff Lake, NJ - August 29, 2008... There’s still time to rule the woods, the desert and a four-lane highway with a versatile new ride this summer. After much anticipation in the motorcycling community, the all-new 2009 BMW F 800 GS has arrived at U.S. BMW Motorrad dealers.

On the road, the F 800 GS offers impressive speed and acceleration with its six-speed gear box and parallel twin engine, delivering 85 horsepower and 62 lb/feet of torque. Features like heated hand grips, available ABS (which can be turned off when riding off-road) and an on-board computer provide the comfort and safety of a long-distance touring bike.

For off-road riding, the F 800 GS comes equipped with 21inch front and 17 inch rear wire spoked wheels, wide foot pegs, an underseat 4.2 gallon gas tank for better weight distribution, and a standard under-engine skid plate. Possessing the power-to-weight ratio of a high-performance enduro, the feisty F 800 GS is a lean, mean impressive handling machine - no matter where the road leads.

The 2009 F 800 GS has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $10,520 (excluding freight). The Standard Package, offered at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $12,025 (excluding freight) includes heated hand grips, Anti-Lock Brakes, an on-board computer, and white (clear lens) turn signals. It is available in two colors - Dark Magnesium Metallic and Sunset Yellow.

Rooted in BMW History
The F 800 GS is the latest addition to BMW Motorrad’s dual-sport model lineup. The bike follows in the footsteps of the highly acclaimed R 1200 GS - which traces its roots back to the early 1980s when BMW won the grueling Paris-Dakar rally four times with its trailblazing dual-purpose R 80 GS.

BMW Motorrad’s GS model line also includes the upgraded R 1200 GS and GS Adventure. Since their debut in 2004, the versatile R 1200 GS and its rugged companion, the R 1200 GS Adventure, have earned praise from motorcycle enthusiasts and the press for their exceptional performance both on and off the road.

The R 1200 GS has earned award after award, including Cycle World’s Best Open Class Street Bike and the International Journalist’s Panel "Best Bike in the World."
The R 1200 GS Adventure was named "Best Adventure Bike" three years in a row by editors of Motorcyclist Magazine.

Ready for Competition
With its wide range of enduro motorcycles and increasing numbers of riders who enjoy the "adventure sport" lifestyle, BMW Motorrad is celebrating 2008 as the "Year of the Enduro" by launching the BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy competition on new F 800 GS bikes.

The International GS Trophy is a skills-based contest with GS riders coming from all over the world for a final meeting to pick the best of the best in Tunisia, North Africa, October 15 - 24. The competition is not a race, but a lengthy and challenging ride, both on and off-road, through the rugged countryside of Tunisia.

The event will include numerous tests in individual riding skills and group teamwork to overcome natural and manmade obstacles in the course of the ride.

A team of six riders is selected to compete for the GS Trophy from each of the following BMW Motorrad markets: the United States, Germany, the UK, France, Italy and Japan. Three of the six riders will be journalists, while the remaining three will be GS owners selected by BMW Motorrad in each market. BMW GS and G 650 Xchallenge owners from the U.S. had until July 24, 2008 to submit applications to participate in the 2008 International GS Trophy Competition.

German performance shop transforms BMW F800GS into Hypermotard

German performance shop transforms BMW F800GS into Hypermotard

A.C. Schnitzer radically transforms the already impressive BMW F800GS off-roader into a ready to hit the track hypermotard. The tuners have simply added 17-inch wheels wearing road rubber and retuned the suspensions for street use.

The engine remains the same 800cc unit developing 85 horsepower, as well as the entire bike, except the previous mentioned changes and adjusting. This upgrade, if you will, took place in the German performance shop and it didn’t took more than a few hours once all the parts were there.

Who knows, maybe BMW will be inspired by this creation and add it to their lineup. I sure know it looks good.
