Zero to Hero Package: Jump Start Your Dreams of Adventure

A complete package with all the tools to take your adventures to a new level.

Published on 11.29.2016

The dream of traveling to incredible remote locations, off the beaten path, is one that has inspired many of us to become Adventure Riders. Although we may take different paths to becoming Adventure Riders, we typically begin with many more questions than answers… Where to ride? What should you carry? What’s the optimal tire pressure? What’s the best gear? How do you ride sand? Should you sit or stand?… The questions keep coming and it may take years to figure it all out through careful research, trial and error.

The complete package to take you from Zero to Hero!

Our friends at RawHyde Adventures recently clued us in to a new opportunity that can help accelerate the learning curve and development of Adventure Riders. It’s a special program for anyone considering purchasing their first Adventure Bike, or just upgrading to the latest and greatest model, and it promises to jump start your adventure riding aspirations in a short amount of time.

Here’s the scoop: At the end of this year, RawHyde must sell off their entire fleet of 2016 BMW GS models, from 650cc to 1,200cc, to make room for a new fleet. Included in the lot, are several beautifully maintained BMW R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure models with mileage in the 4,000 to 5,000 range (barely broken in). Anyone familiar with these iconic Bavarian overland machines knows that low mileage, one-year-old examples are hard to find and you can save thousands compared to buying new.

These 2016 BMW R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure models come with the liquid-cooled flat-twin boxer motor that puts out a soul-stirring 125 horses. They’re also loaded with all the premium options like LED auxiliary lights, semi-active electronic suspension, multiple adjustable ride modes, lean angle sensitive ABS, heated grips, cruise control and luggage racks.

What’s more, RawHyde has expertly prepared these bikes for the rigors of off-road use. They come equipped with the premium BMW skid plate built by Touratech, crash bars (upper and lower on the GSAs), hand guards, clear lens headlight protector, off-road style footpegs, Mitas E10 dual sport knobby tires, heavy-duty cross-spoke tubeless wheels, and each bike has had the Enduro Pro ride mode chip installed to unlock its full off-road potential.

These bikes aren’t without a few minor scratches, but nothing you wouldn’t do on your own after a few rides in the dirt. All bikes are in perfect condition mechanically and have been meticulously maintained by BMW technicians. They also come with approximately 24 months still remaining on the factory warranty.

Standard BMW R1200GS models are selling for $19,500 and R1200GS Adventure models are $22,500. That’s a great price considering these are fully-equipped machines, but what really makes this a standout offer is the fact that each bike comes with an all-inclusive off-road training weekend and a 5-day off-road tour to either Death Valley or Baja, Mexico included FREE! And to sweeten the deal even more, RawHyde will send you home with two brand new sets of tires, in addition to the ones your new bike currently rides on. All of these free extras (training, tour and tires) have a value of more than $5,000!

Get the bike, experience and a new off-road attitude!

During the training (either Intro or Intermediate class), you’ll learn the ins-and-outs of riding big bikes in the dirt. You’ll also have an opportunity to learn from the pros about the tools, technology and equipment of Adventure Riding, the basics of field repairs, setting up your bike for a long-distance trip, what gear you need and more. In addition, comfortable accommodations, chef prepared meals and an open bar in the evenings are all included.

RawHyde is selling their fleet of fully-equipped 2016 BMW R1200GS and GSA models with an all-inclusive off-road training weekend, 5-day tour to Baja or Death Valley, and two extra sets of tires included FREE!

Once you receive your diploma for completing the training, you’ll be ready to head out on a 5-day off-road tour with a group of like-minded riders to either Baja or Death Valley — two of the top bucket list destinations for many Adventure Riders. Out in the remote desert, you’ll ride these bikes like they were meant to be ridden and experience the true freedom of adventure riding. With help from your experienced guides, you’ll get to further hone your technique and learn more about what you need to get out and explore the world on your own.

For those looking for a lighter bike for the trail or a lower price point, RawHyde has several fully-optioned, low-mileage BMW F800GS and G650GS models for sale as well. The 2016 F800GSs are going for $11,750 and G650GSs are $7,895. Both models include the off-road training weekend and two new sets of tires at that price!

BMW F800GS for sale
Fully-equipped 2016 BMW F650GS and F800GS models are available in a package that includes a FREE all-inclusive off-road training weekend plus two extra sets of tires.

And all bike packages qualify for BMW financing, with attractive “EZ Ride” terms, to make your dream ride a more affordable one.

All bikes must go by the end of the year!

Whether you are looking to jump start a new life of adventure or upshift your adventure riding to a new level, this is a unique opportunity to get a great bike, top-level training, an extraordinary experience and new off-road attitude all for one amazing price. All of these bikes need to go by the end of the year and inventory is disappearing quickly, so if you want your pick from the best of the bunch, you should jump on this opportunity right away.
