An Icelandic proverb states, "Iceland is a land that does not tolerate idiots." Iceland obliges everyone that decides to venture into discovering it to think. It is a journey through pristine and wild places, where there is no room for carelessness and errors. Every decision must be taken with extreme care, nothing must be left to chance. For this reason, an adventure-travel necessity like the BMW GS was chosen for a trip that went beyond a simple geographical destination. Iceland is in some respects the most extreme country on Earth; it set the stage for an adventure where the R 1200 GS Rallye and the G 310 GS were not only the perfect travel companions, but in turn also protagonists. Letting the GS race through the Icelandic trails was an experience of the pure and absolute pleasure of motorbike travel.
