New functions for the BMW Motorrad Community

The BMW Motorrad Community was set up about a year ago with the aim of providing riders of all brands with a unique platform on which to share and practice their passion for motorcycling. The result: thousands of enthusiasts have signed on to the Community to date and countless tours have been posted.

To ensure the BMW Motorrad Community stays the ultimate portal for motorcyclists in future, numerous website functions have been optimised and added over the past months. For you, this means it is now easier to plan your tours and engage in dialogue with other riders.

From now on you can invite friends and other riders directly to join you on a trip or recommend tours to you. There is now a special tool which makes it very simple to plan a trip together, enabling those involved to arrange potential dates.

And you can add sights, places of special interest and other notes to a route so as to be sure not miss anything. This function can be particularly helpful when visiting cities or if you are taking a tour for the first time.

There is also good news for riders who have the BMW Motorrad Navigator IV or other GPS devices: every tour from the BMW Motorrad Community can be downloaded in GPX format and - if technically possible - transferred to the navigation device. This makes it even easier to try out your favourite tours right away.

If you have a smartphone with iOS or Android, you can track your routes using the BMW Motorrad Tour Tracker app and then share them with the Community. You will find full details of the app here.
