R12000 DVD Project and Details
Helge's profound experience and knowledge gained in the course of his many travels, coupled with what we learn from our own bikes, and those of our clients on tour, make us uniquely qualified to know what works, what doesn't, and what to do when things go wrong in the field. In cooperation with our sponsors listed below, we have distilled that know-how and road savvy and have produced our new R1200GS Adventure Touring Instructional DVD.

The R1200GS DVD covers the many aspects of accessory selection, bike prep and outfitting, tire puncture repair, tool selection, what we've learned about the new CANbus system, and the many aspects of adventuring on BMW's flagship global tourer.

The R1200GS DVD is a 4-hour, 2-disc set, and includes bonus chapters on the BMW HP2, and an R1200GS/EZS adventure touring sidecar.
