The Azores was chosen by the Touratech team as the goal of a special tour. The purpose of the trip was to test the Touratech R 1200 GS Rambler and to show that you can have fun on the road without a lot of luggage.

Another machine from the Research & Development department at Touratech, a modified BMW F 800 GS, was also part of the show. Piloted by photographer Jon Beck, this conversion seamlessly integrated into the concept of light travel - only the surf equipment had to be transported by car.
