Munich/Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The 18th edition of the BMW Motorrad Days from July 6 to 8, 2018 at the foot of the Zugspitze mountain was a resounding success once again. Apart from the rainy Friday, it was a sunny summer weekend with 35,000 visitors from all over the world coming to the world’s biggest meeting of fans and riders of the BMW Motorrad brand.

International visitors from over 30 countries.
The motorcycle fans with and without bikes not only came from Germany and its neighbouring countries, but from over 30 countries from all corners of the earth. While many visitors travelled to Garmisch from France, Italy and Spain, BMW Motorrad riders also came from distant countries such as Brazil, Canada, South Africa, Japan, Russia, the USA, China, Korea, Thailand, Latin America and India.

A packed programme, new products and celebrities.
For many of the guests it was not their first time at the BMW Motorrad Days in Garmisch. What better place to talk shop with like-minded motorcycle fans, ride through the Alpine foothills together and party into the early morning hours? Around 80 exhibitors from the areas Customizing, Tuning and Accessories presented their new products and a packed programme definitely made the visit to the BMW Motorrad Days worth its while.

The fans made great use of the opportunity of meeting the BMW Motorrad product specialists in person, to talk shop in the exhibition tent and to get to know the current generation of BMW Motorrad models.

As usual a number of special guests responded to the invitation to the BMW Motorrad Days in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. For example the actor and documentary film-maker Hannes Jaenicke, the singer Wincent Weiss as well as photographer and adventurer
Michael Martin.

Thrilling stunts, magnificent outings and riding fun for the entire family.
While spectators were stunned by the BMW Drift Show with Ritzmann Motorsport, the freestyle artists Mattie Griffin and Dirk Manderbach and the wall-of-death show, visitors could also take part in the two-wheel action. More than 750 participants enjoyed some offroad ridingin the Enduro Park and over 170 little guests attended the Kids Trial Taster Training on electric bikes.

More than 100 motorcycle enthusiasts with no licence used the opportunity to get to know this fascinating hobby by taking taster rides under professional guidance. In addition to numerous guided tours through the impressive mountain scenery, the biking action was rounded of with the motorcycle parade consisting of around 200 bikes as well as a classic parade with 30 vintage motorcycles.

Amazing party action.
In 2018 as well, it was above all the keenly enthusiastic guests that turned the BMW Motorrad Days into an unforgettable event. Once again the catering was excellent this year in the festival tent, at the numerous stands across the event grounds and at the party locations. This year, guests consumed a record 20,000 litres of beer, 17,000 litres of soft drinks and 1,400 kilos of “pork hax’n” among other things.

What is more, visitors had the chance of winning two brand-new BMW motorcycles as part of the event pin sales: a BMW F 850 GS and a BMW R nineT Racer with special equipment.

A big thank-you goes to Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the BMW Motorrad fans.
Special thanks goes to the local authorities, the market community of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, the public order offices, the Bavarian Red Cross, the Federal Agency for Technical Relief, the fire department, the police and the many local emergency personnel to ensure that everything went off smoothly at the world’s biggest BMW Motorrad Meeting.
The biggest thanks, however, goes to the many two-wheel enthusiasts, who turned Garmisch-Partenkirchen into the centre of the BMW Motorrad Community for three days and made it an unforgettable weekend.

The preparations for the 19th edition of the BMW Motorrad Days, which will be held from 5 to 7 July 2019, are already underway.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here:
