Whether you ride your BMW to work every day or use it for long holiday trips, your BMW motorcycle is your faithful companion. The advanced engineering ensures that the fun you have will be undimmed even after several thousand kilometres on the road. Nevertheless, there are certain daily checks that we recommend you perform to ensure that your next journey will be a safe one.
Here you can find a few small suggestions to enjoy the riding pleasure on your BMW as much and for as long as possible. After all, it is a valuable piece of technology. Meaning careful treatment is essential for long and flawless functionality.
BMW motorcycles are especially well prepared for the big journey. Thanks to their ergonomics, they can easily travel many thousands of miles. Furthermore, everything is designed and manufactured for demanding continuous operation. Countless luggage solutions offer you precisely the right transportation possibility for your odds and ends on every model. Nevertheless, you should always check that everything is positioned securely, because there is a great deal of force acting on your luggage depending on the road surface and your riding style. Here are a few more tips before we can then say: happy travels!
The surfaces of a BMW have a very high-quality finish. Whether painted or finished with fully dyed materials or metals – we only use the highest quality products. Nevertheless, road salt, moisture and temperatures can take their toll on any material. If you should "lay up" your motorcycle, then store it in a warm and dry place – at the very least dry. Whereas it should be ensured that the covers have sufficient air circulation. Otherwise there is a danger of precipitative moisture – resulting in corrosion. If you want to be completely on the safe side, use a light oil such as bicycle gloss (the clear-red spray oil) – spray this lightly onto your bike. Particularly the metal surfaces are then better protected from corrosion. Before the start of the season, we recommend a wash with a little washing-up liquid in lukewarm water and a soft sponge.
