A little more than a year ago, Issa and Nita Breibish left their hometown Calgary in Canada with a BMW F650GS and R1200GS in order to discover something new. After more than 40,000 km they made a pit stop at Touratech in Niedereschach to equip their bikes with new shock absorbers and fork springs.
When a new adventure motorcycle hits the market, Touratech wastes no time getting the bike out for an extended ride to learn about the bike. So when BMW unveiled their new F800GS Adventure, an expedition-ready variation of their popular F800GS, we took a pair of the new machines out for a 10-day tour of Greece.
Last April, our friends at Aether Apparel embarked on a motorcycle trip through the Rockies, from Telluride to Jackson Hole, riding some of the first open roads and skiing some of the last snow of the season.

There's no doubt that BMW's new water-cooled R1200GS is a capable adventure touring motorcycle.

But there's always some room for improvement.
