The Road to Russia - From Crystal Palace to Red Square

Follow Kevin Turner, also known as ‘The Hapless Biker’, on his great Russian motorcycle adventure as he sets off with nothing more than an 11-year-old Ninja 636, Michelin Pilot Road 3 tyres and the challenge of reaching Moscow on two wheels…

Last August I embarked on a 6,000 mile motorcycle adventure, from London, up through Norway and across Finland to Moscow. I gave myself three weeks to squeeze in a trip that should rightly have taken three months (or rather, my employer gave me three weeks…)

Bike Stop held their biggest ever event on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th of April to kick off the start of the 2014 motorcycling season and it was a great success.

The motorcycle shop, located in Stevenage, threw their biggest event yet to kick off the 2014 season in style. Despite warnings of bad weather, the sun made an appearance and the barbecue went down a treat. 12 time world trials champion, Dougie Lampkin, also made an appearance and wowed the crowd as he rode through the store, performed some tricks on his ramp and even rode over some willing spectators!


KTM 1190 Adventure R arrives at ABR HQ
Written by Nathan   
Friday, 04 April 2014 14:30

A new arrival for the next few weeks as the 1190 Adventure R arrives at ABR HQ. First impressions are really positive; it feels light, agile, manageable; a very different bike to the R1200 GSA that we've also been riding in recent weeks.

Being the R model (as opposed to the standard Adventure model) it has the 21-inch rear wheel, 18-inch rear wheel, increased ground clearance, shorter screen, wider bars and, on this bike, the knobbly tyres. It doesn't however come with the electronic suspension of the standard bike, but is still fully adjustable, with four different riding modes (rain, street, race, off-road) easily switchable using the thumb controls on the left hand.

What's to blame for the recent decline in new riders?
Written by Bryn   
Wednesday, 26 February 2014 10:07

There seems to be a feeling within the motorcycle industry that the number of new riders is in decline with less and less people opting to experience life on two wheels. If you were to then ask why this is, there would be a mixture of responses. 'There's not enough to promote the benefits to new riders', 'there's a negative association with motorcycling', 'it's too expensive to learn' and 'the licensing is too confusing and off putting'.

Whether these feeling are justified or not we'll go into a bit later, but given the above it's then surprising to hear that over the last few years the number of people taking their module 1 & 2 tests has actually been increasing.

According to stats put forward by the DSA the number of people taking their tests has been increasing steadily since 2009, as shown in the table below, apart from the most recent data available, from 2013-2014, which shows a huge decrease in the number of tests taken.

Bridgestone’s new motocross tyre has been given a huge seal of approval by one of the UK’s most successful riders ever, who declared: “It saves seconds in laps, significant sums of money in replacements and is the best tyre I’ve ridden on.”

The world’s leading tyre manufacturer enlisted the help of seven times Dakar Rally competitor Mick Extance and his son Adam, who both put the exclusive Battlecross X30 through its paces at a specially created track in the Welsh mountains.
