How Alpinestars' airbag system was born
Written by Rob Slade   

It’s been 14 years of thorough research and development for the team at Alpinestars but now they have finally released the first fully self-contained airbag system for everyday motorcycling in Europe, the Tech-Air vest.

The project started in 2001 but really took off in 2003 when they introduced a data-logging project into MotoGP to understand the forces and crash dynamics of racers. As it is now hitting the European market, we're looking back at how the Tech-Air came to be.

Written by Rob Slade

9 of the best tents on the market for motorcyclists
Written by Bryn   

You may be on a RTW adventure or just staying the night at an ABR Rally, but we're pretty sure you'll be strapping a tent to the back of your bike. Whether you'll use it or not is an entirely different matter as hotels tend to seem more appealing after a long day in the saddle. But maybe that can change...

Following on from our buying guide on the most important features of a tent, we've compiled a round up of some of the best ones we have tested recently. In this group test, you'll find small tents ideal for those travelling solo, spacious tents for those of you with a missus and plenty of gear, and even a tent that you can park your bike in.

Written by Rob Slade   

This week’s instalment follows GoPro production artists Kames Kirkham and Zak Shelhamer as they join Alex Chacon on a journey from Jaipur to the highest road in the world, Khardung La, India.

Instead of being on your ‘go anywhere’ adventure bikes, the group take on the journey using Royal Enfields. Over the course of the trip, they travel through bustling cities and spectacular scenery along roads that are falling apart, including one that has a waterfall flowing over it. After watching this, you'll be wanting to hit the mountains too.

What to look for in your new two man tent
Written by Bryn   

It doesn't matter if you're riding on a RTW adventure or staying the night at an ABR Rally, chances are you'll be strapping a tent to the back of your bike. Whether you'll use it or not is an entirely different matter as hotels tend to seem more appealing after a long day in the saddle.

But if you decide to give the room service and clean beds a miss, then you'll discover that camping is either one of two things; an uplifting, unifying experience, or an uncomfortable lesson in misery where you try to drown out the noise of your partner snoring while attempting to get comfortable without lying on the sharp rock that you pitched your tent on. And that’s all while trying mould your body around the mounds of wet gear by your feet.
