10 of Britain and Ireland's most amazing roads for motorcyclists
Written by Rob Slade   

When searching for some amazing roads to ride in Europe people often look straight to the Alps and the likes of the Stelvio or the Furka Pass, but look a little closer to home and you’ll find some truly breathtaking routes right on your doorstep.

While we may not possess the same dramatic height of our continental cousins, Britain’s mountains, coastlines and countryside landscapes offer the chance to explore our own beautiful nation. And as motorcyclists, it’s up to us to explore it.

To help you out on this quest (and to create a tick list for summer) we’ve pulled together 10 of the home nation's most amazing roads.

9 bikes to consider for your next Moroccan adventure
Written by Nathan   

Morocco is a popular spot for a lot of UK-based adventure motorcyclists and we can certainly understand why. Reliable weather and a huge variety of terrain makes it a great trip for those looking to take a couple of weeks out and there are no shortage of operators out there too.

Of course, it's much more rewarding to ride down there and do it on your own bike. So with that in mind, here are 10 bikes you should consider for your Moroccan adventure.

Video of the week: Bikers attempt impossible hill climb
Written by Rob Slade   

Look away now if you don't like to see motorbikes being trashed! The latest installment of video of the week features a collection of footage from the 11th edition of a hill climbing event in Andler, Belgium.

These slightly crazy bikers are tasked with the challenge of climbing up the incredibly steep hill to the finish line on their modified motorcycles though in the video no one actually manages to achieve this feat. Instead, pretty much all of the attempts culminate in a wipeout on a spectacular scale. You would certainly need nerves of steel to take this on!

Watch: Jonny Walker performs the most incredible off-road skills we've ever seen
Written by Rob Slade   

We all like to think of ourselves as awesome adventure motorcyclists, and while some of us may actually have the skills to eclipse our ego, the rest us often have to accept the fact that we're not quite as good as we would like to imagine.

Well, with that in mind we thought we would give you something to aspire to. Or maybe something to just make you feel rubbish about your off-road skills. This incredible video shows KTM factory rider Jonny Walker battling his way around the infamous Red Bull Romaniacs prologue course back in 2013.

Yes, we know you probably won't be taking on obstacles like this in the near future, but what an epic video!

10 of the best 125cc adventure bikes on the market
Written by Bryn   

Who says you need a big bike to have an adventure? Here at ABR we like to celebrate the fact that you can get out there on two-wheels and have an epic trip no matter how big the engine is. It may take a little longer to get to your destination on a 125 but hey, it's all about the journey and not the destination, right?

Well, that's exactly where this feature comes in. For those of you who are new to riding and only hold an A1 license, or even for those who just want to try out something smaller before plumping for a hefty 1200 GS, here are 10 of the best 125cc adventure bikes.

Video of the week: Riding India's treacherous mountain roads
Written by Rob Slade   

A motorcyclist from India has taken on one of the most dangerous roads in the world and captured it all in glorious high definition. Carved into a cliff face with nothing but your own intuition between you and a colossal fall to the valley's floor, this is a road that is not to be taken lightly.

Fortunately, Charanpreet Singh took it on so that we don't have to and the resulting footage shows just how treacherous the road really is. Check it out by hitting the 'read more' button below.
