On test: CTEK XS 0.8 Battery Charger
Written by Paul Jennison   
Wednesday, 13 November 2013 14:27



It’s getting to that time of year when the mercury hovers either just above or below the freezing mark on the thermometer and cold starts in the morning can begin take a lot of charge out of your bike's battery and if your battery is down on voltage it may be problematic. On the other hand the arrival of cold weather may mean that your machine is put into hibernation and is only going to see the light of day once the winter is behind us. Either way, keeping the battery in a healthy state of readiness is essential.

The tale of Bundu Motorcycle Adventures
Written by Bryn   
Friday, 18 October 2013 10:28

It was March 2009. Steve Wilkinson, founding member of Bundu Motorcycle Adventures (MK1), was riding his Yamaha XT600 home from work near Plettenberg Bay, South Africa, where he managed a vineyard. It had been topping 40C that day and the work was very physical and without shade as the harvest approached.

As Steve left the unmade gravel road onto the N2, the main road between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, a group of BMW Adventure Bikers rode past being led by what was obviously a tour guide.  In a flash of inspiration Steve thought “That’s what I want to do!”  When Steve got home, he told his wife of his moment of enlightenment and instead of calling him a bloody fool as, let’s face it, most wives would do, she said “Brilliant idea, let’s do it”.

Advertising Feature: Top 10 Race Circuits in the World…the Locations may Surprise you!

Wednesday, 09 October 2013 08:35

Adventure bike riding and motorcycle racing does not usually go hand in hand, just because you enjoy riding a bike does not necessarily mean you enjoy watching other people do it! However, any biking enthusiast should appreciate the skill of the racers, and the beauty of the race bike.

However, motorcycle racing and touring actually combine the best of an adventure bike rider’s passions – adrenaline and exotic locations, therefore why not combine the two into a totally motorcycle orientated trip?
