How much protection does your helmet really provide?
Written by Dr. John Lloyd   

When riding in most countries it is the law to wear a motorcycle helmet, mainly for your own safety, but how much protection do they really provide?

The common belief among motorcyclists is that a helmet protects the whole head, including the brain. However testing standards in Europe (ECE 22.05) and the US (DOT & Snell), which involve dropping helmeted headforms from heights of two-three meters onto a steel plate, only evaluate motorcycle helmets in terms of their ability to protect against blunt force trauma, such as skull fractures and penetrating head injuries.

Watch: Incredible montage shows the joys of riding in India

How Lawrence of Arabia shaped the world of motorcycle safety
Written by Bryn Davies   

Throughout history there have been various influencers in the world of motorcycling. Carl Stearns Clancy proved that long-distance adventures were possible when he rode around the world in 1913, and, like them or loath them, Ewan and Charley undoubtedly popularised the adventure bike movement with their Long Way Round series. While these figures from history have had something of an impact on our riding lives, there's one character who's legacy affects us every time we sit in the saddle. That man is Lawrence of Arabia.

Lawrence of Arabia, or TE Lawrence to give him his 'proper' name, was a British archaeologist, military officer and diplomat who was responsible for mobilising the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire. His extensive cooperation with the Arab people led to him becoming a highly respected adviser to their cause, and he led small forces against the Turks throughout World War I, attacking communication and supply routes.

Make some modifications to your dirt bike and you are left with a machine that can take on the most gnarly, snowy terrain you've ever seen, as this awesome video shows.
