    Default Ride to INTERMOT 2014 on a BMW K1600 GTL EXCLUSIVE!

    The INTERMOT in their own words:

    "The International Motorcycle, Scooter and E-Bike Fair in Cologne is continuously strengthening its brand and will consolidate its position as the international forum for motorised two-wheelers in 2014. In 2012, 203,000 visitors from 117 countries saw the newest innovations and trends from 1,022 companies from 37 countries.

    Prepare for an inspiring, action-packed programme again in October 2014!"

    So when you have something akin to the mecca of motorcycles as the destination it would be sacrilege not ride in on a befitting pair of two wheels. So I chose the BMW K1600 GTL EXCLUSIVE edition, which is at the forefront of intercontinental motorcycle tourers innovators, to ride into INTERMOT.

    I picked up the bike from the BMW HQ in Munich and rode it to couple of world's best roads in the Ital-Austrian Alps - the Timmelsjoch and the Stelvio before heading towards Cologne in Germany for the INTERMOT.

    Here is a brief photo essay so far:

    What a wonderful land this is, making castles and bikes like spaceships together!




    In Innsbruck, Austria:




    At the amazing and popular Stelvio Pass in Italy, there couldnt have been a better day to ride:











    The fit and finish of the bike is truly top notch and exudes luxury:





    And the Timmelsjoch Pass in Austria, I personally think this is more scenic!































    Now I will ride to Cologne from Innsbruck and will start reporting on the expo from 30th evening!

    Great pics Sunny and eager to hear from Intermot.
    As for your bike, although the GTL is slotted in the Goldwing league, I am sure you will agree its almost as nimble as some of the supersport bikes on the twisty Alpine roads.
