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

With lots of new motorcyclists joining the ABR forum, it's great to see the community growing, especially as a lot of these people are only just getting into adventure motorcycling.

Consequently, as well as the standard technical and touring questions on the forum, there are a lot of new members looking for bike advice. Can you help anyone out?

Meet the man who became the first person to motorcycle on all seven continents
Written by Bryn Davies   

Ever since the invention of the engine powered motorcycle, riders have been attempting to push the boundaries of what's possible on two wheels. Throughout the early and mid-20th Century adventure bike riders began to set records for epic journeys over long distances. While Carl Stearns Clancy became the first person to circumnavigate the globe by motorcycle in 1913, it wasn't until 1998 that someone had managed to ride on all seven continents. That someone was an Aussie named David McGonigal.

Much like Clarke Kent, David McGonigal's 'real world' job is as a journalist, however, when he throws down his notepad and turns off his computer he doesn't don a blue spandex suit, he hops on his bike and becomes a record breaking adventure bike rider.

5 Alpine valleys to ride before you die
Written by Bryn Davies   

While there's no feeling quite like nailing a series of switchbacks on the way up a tricky mountain pass, sometimes it's nice to take a more relaxed ride and admire the beauty that surrounds you. While it'd be hard to go to the Alps and not be tempted by some of the world-famous mountain roads, there's something to be said for sticking to the low roads and exploring the many incredible valleys that this mighty mountain range has on offer.

There are so many alpine valleys that are worth riding and it's difficult to pick just five that you must see, but after much deliberation and a few office arguments, we've managed to whittle it down to the selection below. Plan your summer tour around visiting these locations and you won't be disappointed.

6 things you need to know about the Ducati Multistrada Enduro
Written by ABR Staff   

In the Multistrada 1200, Ducati had a road-going adventure-sports bike that stood up to all in its class. As a continental road tourer, it was exceptional. But it couldn't match the all-round ability of rivals such as the BMW GS Adventure or the KTM 1290 Super Adventure.

Step forward the Multistrada 1200 Enduro. Ducati made hundreds of tweaks and changes to the Multistrada to bring the Enduro up to a point where it delivers all that an adventure bike should. The question is, how good are the results?

A full review of the Multistrada 1200 Enduro can be found in the new issue of Adventure Bike Rider, but for now, here are six things you need to know about Ducati's latest adventure offering.

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.

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.
