You can always trust the ABR forum to offer an eclectic mix of topics and last week was no exception. Even Donald Trump made an appearance. The bread and butter of last week’s activity did, however, centre around motorcycle comparisons.

There seems to be a host of riders out there looking to invest in their first adventure bike and they need your help. There’s also a pretty tasty debate about which bike people prefer more between the Honda Africa Twin and the Triumph Tiger 800 XCx. Check out this, and the other highlights, below!

SteveR is thinking about investing in an AJP PR4 Enduro Extreme but wants to get some feedback and sit on one beforehand. He wants to know about ‘real world performance’ including range and luggage carrying capabilities. Help the fella out by popping onto the forum.

The Noodle King is contemplating purchasing a new motorcycle and is caught between the new Honda Africa Twin and the Triumph Tiger 800 XCx. “I love the rugged look of the Tiger, but I like the colour schemes and the dash of the Honda.” What would you go for? Drop in on the forum to join the debate.

LordDeek is looking at getting his first adventure bike but isn’t quite sure what to buy. He’s looking using it 60% off-road and 40% on-road and wants it to be capable of carrying plenty of luggage with good fuel economy.
