6 reasons we love the BMW S1000XR
Written by Rob Slade   

While adventure sports bikes may not be for everyone, they are certainly proving a popular choice to those motorcyclists who are moving away from sportsbikes. They offer fantastic performance at the same time as providing a much greater later of comfort than their distance cousins.

Sure, they're not going to go anywhere near the rough stuff, but for everything else they sure do take some beating and they are a great option for those who enjoy their summer tours to the Alps.

Well, with the S1000XR BMW have a very capable challenger to the likes of the Ducati Multistrada 1200 and the Yamaha MT-09 Tracer. Here are six reasons we're so fond of it...

Bikers reveal their motorcycling inspiration
Written by Rob Slade   

Just over a month ago, we posted a photo of Steve McQueen to our Facebook page with his Triumph TR6 Trophy from The Great Escape, arguably one of the best war films the big screen has ever seen.

Alongside the photo we used the caption, "The man, the legend, Steve McQueen... Who was your motorcycle inspiration?" And with that we were inundated with thousands of likes and hundreds of comments from bikers sharing their motorcycling inspiration with us.

We thoroughly enjoyed reading through them all, so much so that we've decided to share a selection of our favourite comments here.

Survey reveals most common causes of road rage for motorcyclists
Written by Rob Slade   

When people speak of road rage, generally we tend to think of angry car drivers beeping their horns and shouting expletives at other road users (the now infamous Ronnie Pickering comes to mind).

But, dealer chain Jennings Harley Davidson decided to flip this idea on its head and delve into the road rage of motorcyclists with a recent survey with some interesting findings.

Watch: Dirt bike goes head to head with pickup across Australia
Written by Rob Slade   

If you're reading this, chances are two-wheels is your preffered method of travel. And with the progression of the adventure motorcycling industry, there are now loads of capable bikes that are able to take you across all manner of terrain.

But, there are also those who, whether you think it's blasphemy or not, choose not to take on such mammoth journeys in the saddle and instead opt for four wheels instead of two. The question is, which copes better?

Well, that’s exactly what the guys at production company Motology Films wanted to find out. So they took two KTM 300EXCs and a Mitsubishi Triton pickup truck on a 7,200km (4,473 miles) adventure from Perth to the Kimberley region in Western Australia.

On the ABR forum: The Honda CRF250L or the Suzuki DRZ400S?
Written by Rob Slade   

It's been a relatively quiet week on the forum in the sense that most of the threads have actually been about touring and motorcycles as opposed to current affairs.

Among the highlights are questions about tyre choices, touring in France and which is the best green lane machine out of the Honda CRF250L and the Suzuki DRZ400S. Can you help anyone out?
