F800GS 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 F800GSGS Adventure Touring Instructional DVD.


For the first time, Helge is joined by five local riders, who proudly show the accessories and modifications they've made to their bikes, in addition to joining in on the video and photo shoots, so come join in on the fun!


The F800GS DVD covers the many aspects of accessory selection, bike prep and outfitting, tire puncture repair, tool selection, and adventuring on BMW's newest global tourer.


In the Oil Change chapter Helge state that the engine can take 4 quarts of oil, the correct engine oil volume when changing oil and filter is 3 quarts.


The F800GS DVD is a 4-hour, 2-disc set.
