Yes, Virginia, the BMW demo truck will be at the 50th!

After a few years away, BMW Motorrad is sending their full-line demo truck to The 50th!

You'll be able to check out new models from the 2023 lineup, including the R 18 B and R 18 Transcontinental.

In order to take a bike out, you'll need a valid motorcycle license—riders with learner's permits will not be allowed to participate. As expected, BMW emphasizes riding in the proper gear, so you'll need (at a minimum) a DOT-approved helmet, eye protection, a long-sleeve shirt or jacket, long pants and closed-toe over-the-heel shoes or boots. Riders and passengers must be 18 years old. Anybody consuming alcohol is invited to participate on another day.

You'll need to arrive 10 minutes before your time slot, ready to ride, and are expected to attend the roll call and rider's meeting to ensure you get to ride the bike you want.

For more information, visit the demo truck on site at The 50th.


  1. Kudos to BMW! It’s always wonderful to see the big semi, the tents and of course THE BIKES at our rally.

    The demo rides are a great time and a great chance to try a different bike especially if your local dealer is far away. For fans of any other brand those big event demo rides are the only chance they have to test ride.

    BMW is the *only* marque to have a program that encourages their dealers to have demo bikes at the shop.

    Visiting the truck and checking out the fleet is always part of my rally.

    That is awesome, I will wake up early and join the queue. I hope there is some soft drinks shade or maybe some espresso and crumpets while we wait.
    Just kidding I’ll be there
