5 awesome places to explore along the Shakespeare Way
Written by Bryn   

In issue 34 of Adventure Bike Rider magazine we rode the Shakespeare Way to commemorate the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death. The ride, which is approximately 100 miles long, takes you from the birthplace of the world's most famous literary figure, Stratford upon Avon, to the heart of England's capital city and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre.

Along the way you'll ride exciting roads, see some magnificent sights, and discover places and landmarks that you didn't even know existed. While the full write up of the ride can be found in the latest issue of the magazine (which you can get hold of here), in this feature we've rounded up our five must-see locations along the ride.

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

It was an unusually quiet week on the ABR forum last week and remarkably, controversial topics were nowhere to be seen.

Instead, we had members asking for about lightweight shelters, your bike's maximum mileage from one tank and which is best between the Kawasaki Versys 650 and the Suzuki V-Strom 650. Read on and join the conversation.

5 rules to live by when riding in exotic locations
Written by Rob Slade   

Despite Britain and the rest of Europe playing host to some brilliant roads and green lanes, many of us tend to have a niggle in the back of our mind urging us to head further afield in search of a greater adventure.

The Philippines is just one such example. The scenery is spectacular, people couldn’t be friendlier, and the trails are challenging but rewarding. And there’s nothing better than relaxing on the beach under palm trees, cold beer in hand, watching the sun set after a good day on the trails.

To ensure you make the most of your next adventure, we got Jim Bender from Philippine Offroad Adventures to reveal some crucial tips for riding in exotic locations.

So to give you a glimpse into what to expect, we got Tiernan Clarke from motorcycle tour company LemonRock Bike Tours to take us through the route of one of Ireland's greatest rides. Here's what you can expect.

Shinji Kazama: The forgotten adventure motorcyclist
Written by Bryn   

If you were to ask just about anyone who the pioneers of adventure motorcycling were, you'd likely be given a list containing names like Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman, Loice Pryce and Ted Simon, but one name you'll probably not see on any list is that of Shinji Kazama.

An exclusion which is particularly odd considering the Japanese-born ABR was pushing the boundaries of body and bike many years before it became popular.

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

Unusually for the ABR forum, contentious topics such as Donald Trump or the EU in/out debate were far and few between. In their absense were plenty of threads from adventure motorcyclists looking for tips on touring destinations and venting about stupid drivers.

So, have a browse below and see if you can help out any of our forum members and join the conversation.

Why your next touring bike should be a Harley Davidson
Written by ABR Staff   

What makes a great touring bike? Now that’s a question to open wide-scale debate. Most motorcycles can accomplish distance relatively easy, but the majority of bikes aren’t cut out for comfortable and relaxed riding, two-up, and with two weeks’ worth of essentials strapped to them. With just these basic requirements in mind, you probably have a clearer view of what makes a practical touring bike on which you can Discover More.

The fact that more and more of us want to ride this great planet of ours, be it through counties or countries, the idea of owning a bike designed to get us from A-to-B, via C and D, and in supreme comfort, is a sound one. Given that Harley-Davidson has been producing bikes for 113 years, it’s not surprising that this motorcycling stalwart has a wide range of touring bikes that will appeal to just about everyone.

The video documents the 3,000-mile journey taken on by four riders as they make their way from London to Tuscany via some of Europe's greatest roads and most spectacular scenery. Spring and summer can't come soon enough...

Written by Viktoria Barsony   

For many people on these shores, a few gentle green lanes and a couple of weeks touring around Europe is as far as their two-wheeled adventures go. Now, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
