With that in mind, we've taken it upon ourselves to put together a list of six of the best in Europe.

What to look for in your new motorcycle jeans
Written by Bryn   

With the riding season in full swing and the dark, cold, damp and depressing winter behind us it's time to start preparing for warmer weather and better times on two wheels. Standard textile motorcycle jackets and pants are great at providing weather protection and leathers offer the best in terms of protection, but neither are particularly comfortable when it comes to riding in higher temperatures and they don't look so great when you're off the bike. That's where motorcycle jeans come in.

Written by Rob Slade   

It is now illegal to use any type of in-ear devices that emit sound while riding or driving in France after a new law came into effect at the start of July.

Anyone caught in breach of the new rules will be subject to a fine of £95 following the French government's decision, although it is still legal to make hands-free calls using other equipment.

ABR's weekend ride: The tantilising old military road
Written by Rob Slade   

When you’re going for a ride in the Cairngorms National Park in the Scottish Highlands you know you’re onto a winner from the outset. This couldn’t be more true when it comes to the old military road (the A93 and A939).

Its remote nature means that riders are free to discover empty landscapes, plenty of wildlife and remarkable mountain views. Thankfully, there is a highway that runs beside the national park meaning pretty much all traffic gets routed along that road instead of the A93 and A939.

7 tips to perfect your sand riding technique
Written by Ady Smith   

If you're heading off to Morocco or planning on riding some dusty trails then it pays to know how to ride in sandy conditions. It can be a bit of a tricky experience if you don't know what you're doing and you can end up having a nasty off or burying the wheels which makes it a chore to get the bike moving again.

Fortunately, five time British enduro champion and ACU qualified enduro coach Ady Smith has a few simple techniques that make sand riding easier and a bit more fun.

6 of the best adventure-style helmets money can buy
Written by Bryn   

Helmets represent the most important piece of gear for any motorcyclist. Partly because it's the law to wear one, but also because protecting the head is a must. The brain is the most important organ in the body so it makes sense to buy the best protection you can afford. That's why we've put together a round up of the best six adventure-style helmets on the market at the moment.

Video of the week: Alaska to Argentina in 500 days
Written by Rob Slade   

The latest installment of the video of the week is an epic one at that. Alex Chacón is a University of Texas graduate and medical student who sold everything he had to travel around the world on his motorbike.

In this particular video, Alex travels for 500 days from Alaska to Argentina taking in some of the most amazing scenery the world has to offer. He has to deal with everything Mother Nature has to throw at him, crossing swollen rivers, flooded streets, riding in worryingly low visability and taking on some of the most vertigo inducing mountain passes.

What to look for in your new adventure-style helmet
Written by Bryn   

When riding a motorcycle there is only one item that you're required to wear by law; a helmet. While we certainly recommend wearing other protective clothing, even when popping to the shops, the lid on your head is a must. The brain is the most important organ in the body so it makes sense to buy the best protection you can afford. With that in mind, here's our guide on what to look for in an adventure-style helmet.
