Gong traveling, thinking about other things, testing products and gathering news ideas: these are the passions shared by Touratech founder Herbert Schwarz and his wife Ramona. Both can look back on endless adventures in far-off countries. They always travel on their motorcycles, and they always have cameras with them to record their experiences and share them with others. A long-held dream finally came true in the autumn of 2012, because for over five years Madagascar has been at the top of their list of places to go.
Madagascar was also a test for the completely revamped BMW R 1200 GS, the first BMW motorcycle to have a water-cooled boxer engine. A technical revolution – and an occasion for Herbert Schwarz to look back at countless journeys on a wide range of BMW GSs. The new Husqvarna TR 650 Terra was also tested, with Ramona Schwarz putting it through its paces. The film team traveled on two other BMW GSs, the new F 800 GS and the R 1200 GS Adventure.
The island state Madagascar is not only famous for its unique flora and fauna, but also as a grower of spices including vanilla, cloves and pepper. Madagascar offers travelling bikers plenty in the way of undeveloped roads, spectacular landscapes and fascinating people.
The film shows the journey from Nosy Bé in the northwest to the capital Antananarivo. And despite the countless kilometres traveled on this trip, there remains plenty yet to discover in Madagascar. So perhaps this visit wasn’t the last one.
