The BMW R 1200 GS bike is a great all-around tourer! Pavement for lunch? Dirt for dinner?

The BMW R 1200 GS is great on the road, two-up and even loves the dirt! We use it for our tours in Alaska, Canada, New Zealand, South America and South Africa.
EngineThe 1200cc water-cooled engine has great power and reliability. It has lots of torque and puts out enough power for those couples who like to ride two-up.
