The International Meeting has been the most important European gathering of BMW motorcycles of the K1200LT and K1600 series for over ten years.
Participants' countries of origin
Chaves is a city in the north of Portugal. With origins in the Roman civitas Aquæ Flaviæ, given to it by the Emperor Vespasian, who recognised the excellent quality of the thermal springs located here.
Standing on the banks of the River Tâmega and close to the border with Spain, Chaves has always been very important from the military and strategic point of view. Remaining as a testimony to the city´s defensive importance are the castle and its keep, as well as the mediaeval quarter contained within the city walls.
Chaves is also famous for its richly varied cuisine, and particularly for its sausages and smoked ham.
Vila Real is a district of northern Portugal located east of the port city of Porto and north of the Douro River.
The program of the XII International Meeting will allow you to see historic cities, breathtaking landscapes while riding a motorcycle in the Douro River Valley, visit a wine cellar, taste the local cuisine and see many friends again or meet new people who share the same passion.

Many solutions for more fun
International Meeting is the European gathering of BMW K1200LT and K1600 motorcycles. To participate you can arrive with your motorbike, have it transported by a Company that deals with logistics and transport, and also rent it from an official BMW dealer.
The International Meeting Group is different from many others. It is instead a community made up of beautiful people.
A community that has grown over time, succeeding in the difficult task of creating honest and lasting human relationships. It doesn’t matter if we meet once a year; only once a look, a hug, or a beer is enough, and everything becomes like we had seen each other the day before. It applies to newcomers and those who have been here for almost eleven years.
Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of it.
We are waiting for you in Chaves!
