KTM 1190 Adventure R arrives at ABR HQ
Written by Nathan   
Friday, 04 April 2014 14:30

A new arrival for the next few weeks as the 1190 Adventure R arrives at ABR HQ. First impressions are really positive; it feels light, agile, manageable; a very different bike to the R1200 GSA that we've also been riding in recent weeks.

Being the R model (as opposed to the standard Adventure model) it has the 21-inch rear wheel, 18-inch rear wheel, increased ground clearance, shorter screen, wider bars and, on this bike, the knobbly tyres. It doesn't however come with the electronic suspension of the standard bike, but is still fully adjustable, with four different riding modes (rain, street, race, off-road) easily switchable using the thumb controls on the left hand.

What's to blame for the recent decline in new riders?
Written by Bryn   
Wednesday, 26 February 2014 10:07

There seems to be a feeling within the motorcycle industry that the number of new riders is in decline with less and less people opting to experience life on two wheels. If you were to then ask why this is, there would be a mixture of responses. 'There's not enough to promote the benefits to new riders', 'there's a negative association with motorcycling', 'it's too expensive to learn' and 'the licensing is too confusing and off putting'.

Whether these feeling are justified or not we'll go into a bit later, but given the above it's then surprising to hear that over the last few years the number of people taking their module 1 & 2 tests has actually been increasing.

According to stats put forward by the DSA the number of people taking their tests has been increasing steadily since 2009, as shown in the table below, apart from the most recent data available, from 2013-2014, which shows a huge decrease in the number of tests taken.

Bridgestone's Battlecross X30 gains Extance's seal of approval

Bridgestone’s new motocross tyre has been given a huge seal of approval by one of the UK’s most successful riders ever, who declared: “It saves seconds in laps, significant sums of money in replacements and is the best tyre I’ve ridden on.”

The world’s leading tyre manufacturer enlisted the help of seven times Dakar Rally competitor Mick Extance and his son Adam, who both put the exclusive Battlecross X30 through its paces at a specially created track in the Welsh mountains.

5 lessons we learned while riding to Rangoon
Written by Andy   
Monday, 03 February 2014 15:57

Andy and Emilie recently rode a Royal Enfield motorcycle from Delhi, India to Yangon, Myanmar, passing through Nepal and Bhutan along the way. This made them the first foreigners to cross independently and under their own steam from India into Myanmar in several decades.

The seven week, 6,500 km odyssey took them through high mountains and dense jungle and across some of the dodgiest regions and worst roads that the world has to offer. Having finally made it safe and sound back to Yangon, in this article they tell us five big lessons that they learned from the trip.

Video: Knee dragging to head dragging

Friday, 24 January 2014 15:41

You've heard of 'getting your knee down' when cornering, but have you ever heard of getting your head down?

Aside from unintentional helmet to concrete accidents, I didn't think so, which is what makes this video so awesome. It shows two guys riding around a track doing some pretty impressive cornering and the lead rider decides to lean so far that his helmet grazes the tarmac – insane riders and insane viewing!

Vehicle tax will no longer be transferable between owners
Written by Bryn   
Friday, 17 January 2014 17:07

Vehicle tax will no longer carry over to the next owner from October 2014.

As the DVLA plan to introduce a paperless vehicle tax they have also revealed vehicle tax will not carry over to new owners if the vehicle is sold.

The DVLA will be scrapping the paper tax disc in October 2014 and along with the move to axe the 93 year old proof of vehicle tax, any remaining months of tax leftover will no longer be able to carry on to the new owner like it currently can. If you sell a vehicle you will be able to get a refund on the remaining full months, but if you're buying then you could be in a bit of a pickle.
