BMW Motorrad Days 2020 Event Cancelled

For over 15 years bikers from all over the world in 50 different countries have been flocking to Garmisch-Partenkirchen in the foothills of the Wetterstein mountains by the thousands, to what is known as one of the worlds biggest motorcycle events; The BMW Motorrad Days. The festival was originally held in Austria and the very first BMW Motorrad Days took place in Seefeld in 2001 and was called the “BMW Motorrad Biker Meeting“.

Official Press Release below from the BMW Group published here: Update on BMW Motorrad Days 2020 – Cancellation of this year’s event.

Munich. Unfortunately in light of current events and growing measures to contain the Covid-19/Coronavirus, and maintain our duty of care towards our guests and staff, it is with a heavy heart that the Organisation Team of the BMW Motorrad Days has decided to cancel this year’s event in May 2020.

The BMW Motorrad Days represent one of the largest and most international customer events of the BMW Group with a regular attendance of over 40.000 visitors from all over the world. Our aim is to always meet this aspiration. However, the current circumstances no longer allow this event to be planned as the necessary lead times involved are very long. This means that the BMW Motorrad Days cannot be carried out.

Our early cancellation will moreover make planning easier for our many overseas visitors, knowing they have longer lead times for logistics and travel arrangements.

Here are the Highlights taken from the last 3 years

Cape Town to Victoria Falls

Fun times in South Africa – one of my fave ride locations! Nice team at @GSAfrica in Cape Town. This was us on Day One – before 5000k’s north to Victoria Falls.

After Action Satisfaction!

A French group of 7 riders returning to GS Africa’s offices after a very successful tour of 10 days riding from Cape Town along the Garden Route and back to Cape Town via Route 62 – guys & gals enjoying a cold beer after the trip at our fully equipped bar. Great to see everyone back safe (no hiccups apart from the rain). See you all next year again.
