Despite Germany’s unpredictable summer weather, the thousands gathered in Garmisch-Partenkirchen for three days of bikes, beer gardens, live music, events, and parties.

Many people also took the opportunity to get involved in intense discussion with BMW Motorrad developers, engineers and test riders in the exhibition pavilion. Meanwhile guests got a first-hand view of the racing machines and several of the professional riders in the motor racing tent.

According to BMW, guests consumed some 17,000 liters of beer, 14,000 liters of soft drinks, 3,500 portions of chicken, 2,000 portions of currywurst and 1,800 burgers.
