Issue 18 of Adventure Bike Rider magazine is out now and is available for purchase from the ABR on-line store or from selected newsagents around the country.

We’ve jammed this issue full of inspiring and exciting stories of riders and their bikes as well as reviews on the latest adventure bikes and the kit to go with them.

In a revealing interview Austin Vince tells us about his feelings towards The Long Way Round, his hopes and visions for adventure riding and, of course, his new documentary Mondo Sahara.
