In case you missed it, this week BMW is celebrating their 100th anniversary by showing the world what to expect in the near and far future. Just take a look at their futuristic concept bike:
As BMW celebrates their history and their future, we here at MotoQuest want to take this opportunity to share with you a few rides full of historical significance. Motorcycling in itself is fulfilling in many ways, but to us the element of visiting new places is the best part. We’re history buffs, as many of you are, and when out riding we always try to link the ride with some sort of meaningful historical detail. You will find significant history on any given MotoQuest Adventure, but today we’d like to highlight a few particular destinations that you may one day experience with us. Plus, you can enjoy all of these trips aboard a BMW GS!
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is the best preserved medieval citadel in all of Europe, and the birth place of Vlad the Impaler – the real person who gave rise to the the notorious Dracula! Spend a day here strolling the cobble stone streets during our Romaniacs Adventure.

Machu Picchu, Peru
This one goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway — simply spectacular!! Pictures cannot prepare you for the feeling you get when visiting this 15th century city perched high on a mountaintop. And the riding of Peru..oh the riding of Peru!

Southwestern United States
Geologic history is evident everywhere you look in the American Southwest. There’s a reason that so much of this region has been designated as National and State Parks and Monuments. How can one not be dumbfounded by the collision of time, wind, water, rock and plate tectonics?
