For those of you old enough to remember, the BMW International GS Trophy is like the Camel Trophy held between 1980 and the year 2000 (and Camel doesn’t mean the animal but in this case the cigarette manufacturer). In other words, it’s a week long suffering in a hostile environment while trying to ride a BMW GS motorcycle in almost impossible conditions to victory. Blood, sweat and tears!
Many bikers are motorcycle-racing fans, and the King of motorcycle races remains the MotoGP world championships, where we see the elite of the elite compete in circuits around the world.
But every year the schedule changes, as do the circuits used for the races. Scheduling these races is a nightmare for Dorna, the organization that looks after MotoGP and World Superbike races.

All motorcycles share some fundamental characteristics, but as their popularity and versatility has increased a surprisingly wide array of motorcycle sub-types have evolved to suit riders' needs.
Motorcycles are like any other automobile in that they require scheduled maintenance to continue to run properly. If you want your bike to take care of you, you need to take care of your bike. This means getting to know it rather intimately--using tools in places normally hidden from view and dealing with all kinds of necessary but messy fluids.
Often people say that the only reason we buy a motorcycle is so that we can buy stuff that goes with it. These accessories can be anything, and granted, at times we just buy gear because it makes us feel good.
Tires are what keeps your motorcycle from running smoothly and safely. That little bit of rubber is what keeps you sane, because if you were riding like they used to in the beginning, with metal tires (source), you would be vibrating and bouncing like in a bouncy castle.
Kids usually get the best-of-the-best. Special food, clothes, toys – you name it. It's not that children are all spoiled, it's because they need good materials. Kids are still growing and we need to ensure that we accompany the growth properly.
When a manufacturer designs a motorcycle, they usually take an average person's build as rider. As long as you are close to those dimensions, you will be comfortable on the motorcycle. But if you are taller or smaller by quite a margin, your problems start. You will need to start customizing your ride to fit your dimensions.
While it's unlikely that the average rider will have a serious accident nearly all riders eventually do go down at some speed if they ride for any significant period of time. Being prepared for a potential crash with the right protective gear can often mean the difference between getting up and walking away and a visit to the emergency room.
