Biking through Switzerland and ABR friendships
Written by Lee Hine   

It began in November 2015, with a trip to the Motorcycle Live in Birmingham. At the time, I didn’t have either a licence or a bike, but by the end of a great day my mind was working overtime with the possibility of getting both. Four months later, with my direct access done, I became a proud owner of a 2013 Triumph Tiger 800.

I would never have guessed that my spare time would be consumed by everything bike related, and soon I was watching videos on YouTube, based around the Sustenpass in Switzerland. From the first watch, I was hooked. I’d been to Switzerland 16 years ago, and I’d fallen in love with the place. I always described Switzerland as the Lake District on steroids and that one day I’d go back. But I never dreamed it would be on the back of a motorbike.

9 reasons to ride in the Land of the Thunder Dragon
Written by Ana Holden-Peters   

In October 2016, I finally ticked Bhutan off my list of places to explore by motorbike. The landlocked kingdom, known as the "Land of the Thunder Dragon", sits in the Eastern Himalayas between India and China. It has remained relatively isolated from the rest of the world which you can see has protected its strong national identity. At the end of my 9-day trip, this little gem took a permanent top spot on my list - I'll definitely be going back. Here's why:

Moroccan dunes: a paradise for motorcyclists
Written by Aldona Juozaityte   

On 6-13th of March 2016, the 18th edition of the Tuareg Rally took place in Morocco. In the rally, motorcyclists contend with over 62 miles of vast sand dunes and are exposed to the beautiful trails that Morocco has to offer. There are two main bike classes in the rally: ‘pro’ and ‘amateur’. ‘Pro’ presents the biggest challenge, though ‘amateur’ is still an incredible feat and both reach close to the same overall stage mileage per day.

Here, we’ve (begrudgingly) narrowed down our favourites from the show to a mere six. So, without further ado, here is a selection of new metal that has got our hearts racing and hands itching for the throttle.
