BMW Leave everyday drudgery behind you and discover new worlds! To do so you need a reliable companion who won't leave you in the lurch: a BMW Enduro or Funduro. These bikes have proved their qualities on the toughest routes of the world - be it the Paris-Dakar Rally or the salt deserts of the Bolivian highlands - no path is too stony, no track too rough. This way, travelling can be a really special experience, far removed from everyday life.

It is hardly surprising that the GS has been the undisputed number one of the long-distance runners since 1980. All over the world.

Off-road adventure beckons. What are you waiting for?

Tyreprotector The product is a complex mixture of various environmentally friendly substances. All of the ingredients are non toxic and combine to form a gel which has all the properties of a solid, making it highly durable and viscous. As the tyre rotates, centrifugal force evenly spreads Tyre Protector over the entirety of the internal tread area, coating the area with a minimum 2mm coating of sealant. The coating prevents leaks immediately a penetration occurs as thousands of strong interlocking fibres react instantly sealing around the puncturing object thus preventing loss of air.

Tyre Protector will effectively: · Protect tyres against punctures and blow outs · Extend the life of tyres · Improve fuel efficiency · Maintain air pressure · Improve safety · Improve handling and comfort · Potentially save lives · Protect the environment by extending the life of tyres thus reducing the amount going for scrap. www.tyreprotector.se
