Watch: Robbie Maddison goes surfing... on a KTM
Written by Rob Slade   

Drop what you're doing, we've got some serious business to attend to. Well, perhaps not business as such, but we do have a seriously crazy video for you to watch. In a move that trumps any water crossing any of us have ever done, Robbie Maddison has gone surfing on a KTM, literally.

The stunt takes place on the island of Tahiti and shows Maddison cruising through the jungle on his dirt bike before hitting the water in style. This is when things get really awesome as he rides the world famous waves at Teahupoo and Papara. We agree it's quite hard to believe, but it actually happened, and it's amazing.

10 tips for filming your first motorcycle adventure
Written by Austin Vince   

Any fool can strap a GoPro to their crash helmet, but an hour of wobbly footage with bad sound does not make a documentary! The billions of hours of unbearable bike-mounted footage on YouTube proves that.

Making an engaging film of your adventure is a totally different thing. It's not difficult, but you can’t wing it. Austin Vince, motorcycle adventure filmmaker and curator of the Adventure Travel Film Festival provides some pointers on how to film your next journey.

The ABR guide to the highest passes in Wales
Written by Alun Davies   

In issue 29 of Adventure Bike Rider magazine we teamed up with SatNav company TomTom in an effort to detail the three highest motorable passes in each of the five countries of the British Isles. After careful research a route was plotted and we realised that we'd created probably the best motorcycle tour of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, and Wales.

To give you a little teaser, we've decided to share with you the three highest passes in Wales, each one offering fantastic riding and stunning views over the surrounding countryside. So, click 'Read More' to discover Wales' three highest, and most rewarding, passes, and we've thrown in the highest green lane for good measure.

Ask the experts: Leather jackets
Written by Martin Brown   

While textile suits have dominated the adventure bike scene over the last few years, there's no reason why a leather jacket shouldn't have a place in your wardrobe. They may not be ideal for a RTW trip, but if you're just going off for a weekend ride, or doing a bit of summer touring in Europe, there's no reason you shouldn't consider a leather jacket.

With that in mind, we sat down with Martin Brown, director at motorcycle clothing and accessories store, Bike Stop, to find out everything you need to know about leather jackets...

Video of the week: A father and son's 2,800-mile trip through the Himalayas
Written by Rob Slade   

We all long for a chance to head off on a two-wheeled adventure with nothing but the road ahead and new lands to explore. But to make it a truly unforgettable, rewarding experience, an adventure is best shared with someone else.

That's exactly what motocross racer Adam Riemann did in this week's video when he took his dad − inexperienced in the world of adventure motorcycling − on a 2,800-mile ride through the Himalayas. On a couple of 150cc motorbikes, the duo tackle countless treacherous roads while cutting through some truly breathtaking scenery.

How to deal with deadly insects while on the road
Written by Dr Mike Leahy   

When riding anywhere in the world it's worth paying attention to what could be hiding in your boots, TV's Dr Mike Leahy tells us how to avoid getting bitten.

Working for the BBC and the National Geographic channels took me to many fascinating places and gave me the chance to hire, beg or borrow available bikes to go exploring. I thought that making shows like Bite Me would give me the opportunity to educate the public about the real health issues posed in developing countries.

But sadly the stories covered by the media, even in ‘educational’ documentaries give us a skewed view of the risks posed to us when travelling to remote locations. Without a potential change in attitude we could be putting ourselves at risk on a two wheeled adventure.
