    Registration opens on the 20th June 2017

    The BMW Safari event began in 1994 and this is its first ever visit to WA.

    Designed to cater specifically for riders of BMW Motorcycles. It is unique to Australia. There are two different flavours - the TS Safari for road touring and the GS Safari for off-road adventure riding.

    BMW Safaris are a place where riders can escape the daily grind, enjoy the freedom of traveling by bike and make life a ride with a great support network. The Safari typically runs as a touring style event for 5 days staying in a different location each night. The kilometres covered each day varies between about 200 – 500 kilometres so riding time could be up to 8 – 9 hours on some days. It is not a guided tour but the route is pre-ridden in the lead up to the event and full route maps and GPS tracks are created. We also send a lead rider out early in the morning to additionally mark the route with some arrows and also check road conditions in case of any major hazards en-route.

    Each rider is free to follow this route at their own pace and stop as they please throughout the day. The only exception to this is where we will sometimes have alternate hard routes planned for riders who want to challenge themselves a little more. In this case we will have a lead and tail rider who guide riders over more difficult terrain. Help will be at hand to ensure everyone gets through safely as a group. In addition to this we have a sweep vehicle bringing up the rear with a trailer to carry any bikes that need to be picked up.

    For GS Safaris, a luggage truck is also part of the convoy and will cart your luggage to each overnight stop so your bike is not weighed down with all your clothes.

    One of the great things about BMW Safari is that it brings such a wide mix of people together. While the focus is on riding a lot of the time the adventure is about the places you go and the people you meet. Socialising is a big part of BMW Safari life. At night riders are treated to a mix of accommodation, entertainment and food. BMW Safari is an opportunity to meet like minded people and create life-long memories. The Safari concludes with a farewell dinner where everyone has a chance to tell stories about the week’s adventures and perhaps make plans for the next ride with your new found riding buddies. BMW Safari is an outlet for BMW riders that others envy. The riding is first class and the routes are remote. Be a part of the GS community and join us for an adventure of a lifetime.

    NEW BMW SAFARI EVENTS!

    BMW Safari events in 2017.

    2017 GS SAFARI ENDURO
    Dates for the 2017 BMW GS Safari Enduro have officially been released. Next year's ride will travel from Cairns to the Cape return, exploring the magnificent trails of Far-North Queensland from August 5 - 12 2017.
    Bookings open Tuesday April 4.
    More information here.

    2017 GS / TS SAFARI
    In 22 years of BMW Safari we have never been to WA, but we’re changing that. In 2017 we’ll run the GS and TS Safari in tandem - the same way the original BMW Safaris used to run - with TS riders on the road and GS riders taking the dirt. Nightly stop overs will be the same so everyone can share the amazing BMW Safari spirit.
    Pricing and more information will be announced soon.
    Bookings open Tuesday June 20.

    BMW SAFARI GS TOURS (2-4 day events, maximum 50 riders)
    Many GS Safari customers want more BMW Safari events, so we will be running more Safaris in between the major GS Safari and GS Safari Enduro events. If you have been on a BMW Safari before you can bring a mate on another brand of bike.

    FINKE / SIMPSON CROSSING (EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST REQUESTED)
    We have been thinking about this ride for over a year and June 2017 could see it come to fruition. If you are keen to watch the iconic Finke Desert Race then cross the Simpson Desert, this ride would tick the boxes. This ride will be strictly limited, riders will need to be fit and experienced in sand riding.
    Pricing and more information will be announced soon.


    To register your interest please email info@bmwsafari.com and provide your name, contact details, riding experience, GS Safari events attended and bike model intended to cross the Simpson.

    The following letter is published on behalf of Dave Wright, President of the Motorcycle Riders Association of Western Australia Inc.

    "Motorcycle representation on RAC Council Election - 2016    

     Hi All (especially the RAC members among you)

    I have nominated once again for a position on the Royal Automobile Club of Western Australia Council (RACWA).

     

    I firmly believe that I can contribute positively to the growth of the RACWA in the areas that I have worked with that organisation over many years -  to improve the safety of the most vulnerable road users in our community namely pedestrians, cyclists and particularly motorcycle and scooter riders.

     I remain committed to actively assisting and supporting all riders and pedestrians.  I have accumulated many years’ knowledge and experience and will continue to work for rider safety and sensible, practical legislation and to improve roads and roadsides for all vulnerable road users.  Those amongst you who know me personally can testify to that however, I NEED your support to achieve this.

     There are currently 15 sitting councillors on the RACWA Council.  This election, there are 7 candidates standing for the 4 available positions.

     You can vote for 1 only or up to four candidates and I would sincerely appreciate your support by placing an 'X' alongside my name (not a tick).  As 4 incumbent RAC councillors are re-nominating, my best chance of success is for my supporters to vote for me only.

     RACWA members will be receiving their copy of the RACWA Horizons Magazine very soon in which the RACWA Council Voting Ballot Form will be included.

     Voting is for RAC members only and can only be done by using the form in the Horizons Magazine, so please do not throw your magazine out until you have voted.

     The RAC is a very Influential organisation that can do a lot more for us and with your support I will work to that end.

     

    Again, I would sincerely appreciate your support and sharing your personal recommendation to your friends, family & neighbours.

     

    David Wright

    President

    Motorcycle Riders Association of Western Australia Inc.

    Ulysses Club National Road Safety Committee (WA representative)   

    WA Motorcycle Safety Advisory Group member.

     WA Vulnerable Road User Group member
