Compass Expeditions has added new BMWs to their South American fleet to extend their suitability to shorter riders and two-up tourers.
The Australian-based company, which offers tours on most continents, has added the BMW F800GS, R1200GS and a lowered-suspension model F700GS to their fleet of F700GS motorcycles in South America.
Now riders of all sizes should be accommodated and riders will also be able to bring their pillion-in-a-million along for the ride.
“As one of the only International Motorcycle Tour companies that own their own motorbikes in South America we felt that it was important to offer a variety of bike sizes for our clients,” says company founder Mick McDonald.
“For the taller riders the F800GS with its much taller seat height works really well and handles the dirt sections comfortably.
“For those wishing for a bit more power or perhaps riding two-up we have the R1200GS with comfortable seating for a pillion.
“The lowered suspension F700GS is especially popular with female riders but is available for anyone with its lower 765mm seat height.”
The new larger bikes are available at an upgrade price on request for all 2015 and 2016 South America tours.
