The Africa Twin RD07 buyer's guide
Written by Matt Halliday   

As many of you know, details of the much anticipated new Honda Africa Twin were released recently. But what if you don't want to shell out £10,000 odd on a brand new machine? Well then it might be worth considering the much loved original. Self-confessed Africa Twin fan Mark Halliday gives us the low down on what to look for when buying a used Africa Twin RD07.

7 of the most dangerous roads in the world
Written by Rob Slade   

We've covered amazing alpine passes, spectacular coastal roads and the most isolated roads in the world, but for some reason we just didn't feel complete. There was something missing... And that was a list of the most dangerous roads in the world. But there's no need to worry! We've got that covered. We are afterall an adventure bike publication so it would be silly not to have a list like this.

So what's in store? Well, these roads are certainly not for the faint-hearted. The list includes roads that take you through Taliban territory, across thousand-mile stretches of inhospitable isolation and includes roads that are falling apart and don't even deserve the accolade of being called a road.

They hail from all corners of the Earth including Europe, Australia and South America and if there's one thing for sure, you'll need a strong sense of adventure and balls of steel to take these on. But, being who we are, we like to encourage a challenge, so without further ado, here are seven of the most dangerous roads in the world.

Could the new Autocom GPS Tracker answer your security worries?
Written by Rob Slade   

If there’s one thing that proves to worry most motorcyclists, it’s bike security. Unfavourable motorbike theft rates have made it even more imperative to keep your bike in a safe place or behind locked doors.

That worry can often manifest itself even more when on the road or more specifically, off the beaten track. A common topic we see on the forum is how to keep your motorbike secure while camping. Well, maybe a GPS tracker is the right way to go for peace of mind.

In answer to those concerns, Autocom has recently launched their new GPS Bike Tracker. The device acts as a security system that uses GPS location and SMS communication. Here's everything you need to know.

On the ABR forum last week...
Written by Rob Slade   

As ever, the ABR forum has been pretty active over the past week with plenty of motorcycle talk and the odd bit of chit chat. So, we’re rounding up some of the best posts to offer a glimpse into what’s going on and fuel the ongoing debates. This week’s posts include questions over how many bikes you actually need and how lightweight you travel. Got an opinion? Make sure you head to the forum and share it!

Save weight and upgrade your bike's looks with the Diablo Mini Exhaust
Written by Bryn   

One of the main grievances we all have with modern day adventure bikes is usually concerning how much they weigh. With many motorcycles weighing upwards of 200kg, we can't really be blamed for wanting to shave weight off of bikes. At the same time, not all manufacturers get the looks right and while a machine may be great on the inside, it can sometimes lack the looks to wow people. Well, that's where the Diablo Mini Exhaust is supposed to help out.

The Diablo is an aesthetically pleasing exhaust from UK based manufacturers, Fuel Exhausts and we managed to get our hands on the version for the KTM 1190 Adventure. All of the company’s products are designed and manufactured in their factory in the Lake District where there’s an emphasis on providing quality, easy to fit kit.

10 old motorcycle adverts that will make you smile
Written by Bryn   
There's something about old motorcycle adverts that, despite the blatant sexism and disregard for political correctness, just makes you smile. Perhaps it's the nostalgia, perhaps it's the fact that these bikes have now taken a place in history or, perhaps it's that same carefree disregard that leaves you looking at them and thinking 'I can't believe they were allowed to print that!'. With that in mind we've compiled a list of 10 of our favourite old motorcycle advertisements for you to see, from Harley Davidson's 'adventure bike' poster, to Bultaco's good manners, and a touch of wildness. Enjoy!

Filtering is legal and it's time people learn that fact
Written by Rob Slade   

How many times have you been trying to filter through queued traffic only to find other cars blocking your way? Many drivers are accommodating to bikers on the roads but there are those who are downright frustrating.

There have been times when we’ve been filtering through traffic only to find a car has moved over to block the path as if what we were doing was wrong. But the thing is, it’s not wrong. It’s actually our right by law.

That’s why we’ve put together this post. To have vent a little, yes, but most importantly our aim is to spread the word so that motorcyclists know it’s within their rights, and other motorists know that it is absolutely legal and acceptable for us to do so.

ABR's weekend ride: The challenging Hardknott Pass
Written by Rob Slade   

This week's installment of ABR's weekend ride features a popular but challenging one. The Hardknott Pass. Located in the heart of the Lake District, the Hardknott Pass is one of the more taxing rides which is both down to the road, the traffic and the odd stray sheep. It is one of the steepest roads in Britain, is narrow and has countless corners. But it's great fun. Click 'read more' to get the details.

6 books every adventure motorcyclist needs to read
Written by Rob Slade   

Although a lot of you may not be able to escape work or the family this summer for a big two-wheeled adventure of your own, that doesn't mean it shouldn't feature in your life at all. We've compiled a list of six books that are essential reading for any adventure bike rider.

They tell stories of experiences from across the globe in some of the most remote and challenging environments known to man. Thankfully, this means you've got plenty to help distract you from the boring chores most of us get caught up to in day to day life. It may even give you that final piece of inspiration you need before committing to an adventure of your own.
