Re: The rise of the Adventure Biker?

Adventure is adventure. Back packing independently around Europe is an adventure. Going all exclusive to Benidorm is not. I do not think you should conflate the two. The point is, Benidorm was adventure, until everyone could get there. Adventure riders are already looking for quirks to make their ad...

Re: The rise of the Adventure Biker?

Re: The rise of the Adventure Biker?

Bigger backing brings more people and that brings more opinions - life through diversity and challenge sounds rather good to me and if the industry and marketing get fully behind it then that means more options for you and for me in all sorts of areas. Bigger backing brings more conformity and ther...

Re: The rise of the Adventure Biker?

Adventure riding isn't a bike, it's a state of mind. Lately I'm encountering more and more folk who ride a circuit, not a track, but a regular road route of 50-100 miles, sometimes even less. They have their adventure confined by the available free time and the expectations of social activities alon...
