BMW Motorcycles of Jacksonville Demo Event

It’s always exciting when you have the opportunity to ride some of the latest and greatest motorcycles from BMW Motorrad. There was a great selection of motorcycles for this event, including the S1000R, many GS models and the new R18.

The sign-up experience was available in advance online, and many riders used that to get on the waiting list for bikes. I came specifically to ride the S1000R, since I had heard so many good things about it. I was not disappointed! I saw several demo ride groups roll out onto the demo circuit, so many riders had the opportunity to ride new BMW motorcycles.

The demo route was a mix of suburban roads and highways. We were able to get comfortable on the motorcycles in slower-speed areas with stop signs, street lights, crossing busy roadways and lots of turns. Then we rolled out onto 295 for a few miles at highway speeds.

The ride leaders were respecting the speed limits and traffic flow on the roads, which resulted in a safe and enjoyable ride on some of the 2021 BMW Motorrad motorcycles.

Special thanks to BMW Jacksonville for hosting the Demo Event this weekend.
