The eleventh annual BMW Motorrad Days will take place July 1-3 at Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany.

The worlds largest BMW Motorrad meeting draws over 30,000 visitors to the Bavarian town along the Germany-Austria border.

BMW and Husqvarna will have their entire model range at the event, with test rides available for nearly all models. Visitors will also be able to develop their off-road skills riding BMW GS models on the 2.5-acre BMW Enduro Park. Husqvarna fans will also be able to learn riding skills from professionals on the Husqvarna X-track.

Chris Pfeiffer, the four-time world stunt riding champion, will demonstrate his skills. The native of Schongau, Bavaria, native says he has some new stunts to wow the crowds at Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

I have a lot of new tricks, says Pfeiffer. The bounce to crosslegs, for instance, I find pretty cool. In an overhanging wheelie I brake so suddenly that Im catapulted out of the seat and land crosswise on the rear footrests. And all this while Im still doing the wheelie! Im really looking forward to Garmisch, its an absolute highlight on my schedule.

Visitors will also have a chance to win a new BMW G650 GS or a BMW R1200R in a pair of raffles.
