The 1 Malaysia World Endurance Ride (1MWER) team travelled around the world starting from Malaysia over the duration of a year and a half. Travelling around the world is an experience that not many people get to experience, yet alone travelling around the world with your buddies on motorcycles.

But most importantly tough motorcycles need to be used for this big task which is why the team decided to pick BMW Motorrad’s F800GS as their bike of choice. Special modifications were made on the respective F800GS’s to farther make them capable to tackle this journey, the highlighted modifications were:
