Compass Expeditions, the world’s only motorcycle tour company to be included in National Geographic’s “Top 50 tours of a lifetime” list, has added to its fleet of South American bikes BMW’s F800GS, R1200GS, as well as an F700GS with lowered suspension.
“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 Mick McDonald, founder of Compass. “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 on the F700GS, with its 765mm seat height, is especially popular with female riders, but is available for anyone.”
The new, larger bikes are available upon request for an upgraded price for all 2015 and 2016 South America tours. To learn more about Compass Expeditions and its tour dates visit www.compassexpeditions.com.
