The internet isn’t short on videos showing the off-road prowess of the BMW R1200GS. However, as far as I’m aware, it is short on videos showing what a BMW R1200GS can do around an abandoned kids camp outside of Moscow. Daniel Kushnarevich and Alexander Golovkin decided to change that. The duo brought along their riding pal, Vadim Shpilevsky, and filmed him tearing up this rather creepy looking desolated children’s camp in a film they call “Desolation.” See it for yourself below.
Shpilevsky looks to be riding an air-cooled R1200GS, with windscreen and mirrors removed to help get through some tight spaces. From there, some bash guards protect the engine from damage, while more off-road oriented knobby tires are better suited than the stockers for the conditions.
One can only wonder why the camp was closed down, but nonetheless, it makes for a cool practicing ground for any trials or adventure riders in the Moscow area!
