2008 BMW R1200GS Adventure

It's your planet. Ride it.

True two-wheeled adventurers know that when it comes to epic riding that crosses continents, there's only one choice: the unstoppable, all-conquering R 1200 GS Adventure. And for 2008, the world's most rugged adventure tourer features enhancements that make it even more adept at reaching the unreachable. A 5% increase in horsepower kicks its engine output to 105 HP. Combined with a taller windshield, adjustable seat, extra wide foot pegs, optional ABS and an 8.7 gallon fuel tank, even the longest days in the saddle are a breeze. Add Enduro ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) and you can customize both front and rear suspension settings to fit off-road or on-road riding conditions with the flick of a switch. No wonder it was Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman's choice for their trans-Africa odyssey in the upcoming “The Long Way Down” and their epic journey from London to New York in "The Long Way Round."
