82 Herbert Schwarz ยป What does Touratech actually do at the Trophy? Touratech not only supported the competition by providing the set-up for the bikes as well as logistics, but also coordinated worldwide live coverage of the event. To prepare 80 BMW R 1200 GS and twelve BMW R 1200 GS Adventure machines as best possible for the extreme mission in Canada, they were upgraded with Touratech Hard Parts to protect the engine, cylinders, coolers, ABS sensor, manifold, universal joint, frame and brake fluid cylinder. The rear bag, hand protectors, covers for the brake calipers and adjustable foot brake lever are all Touratech accessories. The jobs of the two Touratech mechanics, Wolfgang Bannholzer and Bernd Pribil, entail night shifts galore. They have to be omnipresent to make sure that the BMWs keep running throughout the event.
