AltRider 2013 BMW R 1200 GS Crash Video

While shooting photos for its latest protection parts for the 2013 BMW R 1200 GS, AltRider had a few tumbles.

With AltRider President Jeremy LeBreton at the controls of the revamped GS, the bike took some abuse. And in stock form, there’s no way BMW’s top adventure bike would hold up.

But this bike was loaded with AltRider’s latest protection pieces, including crash bars, a skid plate and a luggage rack. The attached video shows some crash outtakes, and how little damage the R 1200 GS receives when hitting the ground – even while once flipping over.

Attached above is the outtakes video; for more on AltRider’s accessories for the GS, click here.
