An open letter to worried partners - This is why we ride (and why you need to stop worrying)
Written by Miley Stevens   

When I first told my partner that I was going to start riding a motorcycle, it's fair to say that it didn't go down well.

Of course she'd heard countless horror stories of people falling off their bikes, and the thought of sitting at home worrying while I was speeding down busy roads was something that she just couldn't stand the thought of. Furthermore, she couldn't understand why I would feel compelled to put myself in such danger, and to spend so much money for the privilege. What’s the upshot?"

So I thought I'd do my bit for the community and share my monologue with you here. Show this to your worried partners and hopefully it will help them to understand a bit about why you feel the need to ride, because I wish that something like this was available when was in the throes of that debate. You're welcome…

An awesome day out on your bike (that you probably shouldn't tell anyone about)
Written by Leo Mollan   

I've always been of the opinion that you should do the things that make you happy and that you enjoy. It doesn't matter whether they are the 'done thing' or whether they are considered 'normal' - the only question you have to ask yourself, assuming you aren't hurting anyone, is 'do I want to do it?'.

This is why my friend and I recently had a day out on our motorcycles that was just awesome… but technically wasn't and perhaps got us a little teasing from friends. Here's what we got up to, and why I think you should give it a go too…

An off road adventure like no other
Written by Bryn   

Simon and Lisa Thomas have now ridden some 325,000 miles, skidded, fallen and traversed 78 countries on their way to claiming the Guinness World Record for the longest continuous ride by a motorcycle team ever.

It’s an impressive feat by anyone’s standards, but their adventures started in the same place as many of the world’s modern adventure riders, BMW Off Road Skills in South Wales.
