R1200 Rallye X in the Finke...

Postby Digger » Sun Jun 11, 2017 3:55 pm

The newly released BMW R1200GS Rallye X has completed the first day of Finke...ridden by Miles Davis who was the former Marketing Manager for BMW Bikes here in Oz. The event finishes tomorrow when they return to Alice (Monday).
Big effort...the man can ride.

I gotta be honest, I didn't think the suspension would hold up. Huge effort for rider and bike. They must be a versatile beast (the bike) in the right hands.

Yes...... But he rode the bike to the event, did the two days and now he's off to cross the Simpson on it!

Versatile? That just might be the understatement of the year!
