295295 Hechlingen demonstrated how easy it is to maneuver an R 1200 GS over terrain. The travel preparation workshops with tips and tricks for suitable equipment were also fully booked. Everything necessary to take perfect photos on a trip was conveyed to listeners by a more than competent Andreas Hülsmann. Presentations on GPS navigation and the right choice of tires were part and parcel of the program, as was advice on suspensions, guided factory tours, interviews with exhibitors and presentations of motorcycles on the main stage. The prize for the greatest distance traveled, awarded by the „Tourenfahrer“ magazine, went to Eugene Bobrikov from Moscow, who had covered 3000 kilometers with his F 800 GS 3000 to attend the Travel Event. And amidst all the bustle, two cycling legends close up: Grant and Susan Johnson, founders of the worldwide network „Horizons Unlimi- ted“, who have already inspired numerous persons to live their dream. Two who have already followed that path, are Heike and Filippo Fania (, who have just returned from a two-year trip through Asia, Australia and New Zealand, and who met up with friends at the Travel Event they had last seen at the other end of the world.
