Blimey! It's that time of the week again when we pick one lucky winner for our Pic of the Week competition. Thank you to all ABRs who sent in their shots for consideration and (I know we may say this most weeks) we've been sent in some awesome shots and its been more difficult than ever to choose this week's winner.

After painstaking deliberation and a few disagreements in the office we can announce that this week's Pic of the Week winner is...Andrew Davies with this shot of his Yamaha XT660Z Tenere almost buried in snow. A bit of a contrast to the high temperatures we're currently experiencing!

ABR Pic of the Week

Congratulations to Andrew, the proud new owner of an ABR beanie (you'll need it in that snow!) and two ABR stickers!

We had such a hard time choosing the winner this week, so if you'd like to see the competition Andrew was up against click 'Read more'.

ABR Weekend Weather

Friday, 09 August 2013 17:23

The weather over the last few weeks has been pretty typical of a British summer and it hasn't quite decided if it's going to be rainy or sunny. On the plus side though temperatures have remained pretty high and it's still definitely warm enough to be riding without your thermals!

But what's the weather going to be doing this weekend? Click 'Read more' to find out!

Tuesday's travel tip: Sleeping mats
Written by Bryn   
Tuesday, 06 August 2013 15:49

A wise man once told me that sleep is one of the most important things our body needs in order to function properly. Without it we're boring caffeine-fuelled zombies who are incapable of doing much at all, but with it we're happy, alert, and most importantly, ready to ride.

According to the National Institute of Health, the required amount of sleep for the average adult is eight hours. That means (if you're average) you're spending toughly 33 percent of your adventures tucked up in a sleeping bag catching some Z's.

Given this information, it seems all the more likely that you'll want to make your sleeping area as warm and as comfortable as possible.

ABR Weekend Weather

Friday, 02 August 2013 12:46

With the exception of the crazy warm day we had yesterday, this weekend has seen a return to what we would consider a typical British summer, we've had rain, we've had a lot of cloud cover and if its been warm, its been the muggy, suffocating heat that's crying out for a thunderstorm to clear the air.

Will things get more favourable over the weekend though?


Advertising Feature: Tips for biking in Europe
Written by Amber Howard   
Friday, 02 August 2013 11:23

Preparing for a motorcycle tour or holiday can be quite difficult; unlike a trip in the car, you can’t stock up and fill the boot with everything you may need for your trip. Motorcycling is almost like backpacking; you need to do your research and you can only bring as much as you can carry, and only the essentials.

However, how do you decide what is essential from what is just ‘useful’? A good place to start is to check the laws and regulations of your chosen destination(s). There are certain things which you must know, remember and carry to meet the requirements of certain countries.
