Is this the best mobile app for motorcyclists?
Written by Harriet Jordan   

Regardless of whether you leave bike maintenance to the professionals, or if, to you, getting down and dirty with the mechanicals is all part of the fun, it’s indisputable that riding is the most enjoyable element of owning a bike.

To keep the hassle of maintenance to a minimum and, thus, free up more riding time, a new iOS app has entered the market. Created by a fellow biker, the app ‘Moto Report’ aims to keep your motorcycle in tip-top condition, help you save money and enjoy a hassle-free ride.

Biking through Switzerland and ABR friendships
Written by Lee Hine   

It began in November 2015, with a trip to the Motorcycle Live in Birmingham. At the time, I didn’t have either a licence or a bike, but by the end of a great day my mind was working overtime with the possibility of getting both. Four months later, with my direct access done, I became a proud owner of a 2013 Triumph Tiger 800.

I would never have guessed that my spare time would be consumed by everything bike related, and soon I was watching videos on YouTube, based around the Sustenpass in Switzerland. From the first watch, I was hooked. I’d been to Switzerland 16 years ago, and I’d fallen in love with the place. I always described Switzerland as the Lake District on steroids and that one day I’d go back. But I never dreamed it would be on the back of a motorbike.

9 reasons to ride in the Land of the Thunder Dragon
Written by Ana Holden-Peters   

In October 2016, I finally ticked Bhutan off my list of places to explore by motorbike. The landlocked kingdom, known as the "Land of the Thunder Dragon", sits in the Eastern Himalayas between India and China. It has remained relatively isolated from the rest of the world which you can see has protected its strong national identity. At the end of my 9-day trip, this little gem took a permanent top spot on my list - I'll definitely be going back. Here's why:
