From July 3-5 Garmisch-Partenkirchen in German's Tirol region will once again be transformed into the Mecca for BMW motorcycle fans. During this time, BMW motorcyclists will meet for the ninth time to party in Bavarian style. Over 34000 visitors found their way to the BMW Motorrad Days last year and just as many are expected this year.
As the world's biggest motorcycle meet, with its picturesque mountain backdrop, visitors can expect a packed program of entertainment. One of the highlights will be Team BMW Motorrad Motorsport, which has entered the World Superbike Championship with the racing version of the S 1000 RR. Motorcycle fans will be able to get up close to the two riders Troy Corser and Ruben Xaus, with autograph and photo sessions. What's more, the serial production version of the S 1000 RR will be presented to the general public for the very first time at the BMW Motorrad Days.
In the Freestyle Area, motorcycling stunt rider Chris Pfeiffer will be demonstrating his skills. He never ceases to amaze visitors with his trick combinations - a talent which won him the Indoor Streetbike Freestyle World Championship for the third time in succession.
The world's best enduro riders, such as Andreas Lettenbichler and Juha Salminen, will be roaring around the "x-track", providing spectacular off-road motorcycling entertainment.
In addition to test rides on current BMW Motorrad models through the beautiful surroundings of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, there will also be a large-scale motorcycle parade on Saturday as well as a classic parade on Sunday, starting and finishing at the Hausberg site.
This year there will once again be women's tours, designed for female riders, organised by a lady tour guide and on BMW motorcycles - including lowering sets if requested.
Once again, BMW motorcycles will be available at the popular enduro park, and experienced instructors will provide free training sessions throughout the weekend.
By popular request, guests will have a great time in the party tents with the band "Blechblos'n" on Friday as well as "Gary and Gerry and their used underwear" on Saturday. On Friday evening the barn will be rocking with the Austrian party band "Dreirad", followed by alternative rock from Portugal the next day with "Switha's Band". Hot sounds from the turntable are promised by DJ Moorat, and Gitty Fisher will inspire country and rock & roll fans on both evenings with her unplugged performances. Solo guitarist Byron will provide chill-out sounds at the Fire Ground.
There will be exciting and informative entertainment from motorcycle adventurer Michael Martin, who has been on countless expeditions through all the world's deserts. As part of his "Travel Surgery" at the US Lodge he will not just be giving insights into his latest project "Planet Desert" but also valuable tips for all those planning a motorcycle trip to remote countries.
The raffle will give fans the chance to win a BMW F 800 R on Friday evening and a BMW F 800 GS on Saturday evening. Immediately adjacent to the grounds is a campsite with bathroom facilities. And as in previous years, reservations at hotels of differing categories can be made under firstname.lastname@example.org
