Explore the world

Seriously, if you’re planning to tour the Iberian Peninsula anytime soon, make sure you read ABR contributor Sean Denton’s story about exploring off the beaten track before you travel.

His photos from the gravel roads of the Bardenas Reales desert are awe-inspiring, and after riding the magnificent Alto Velefique, Sean reckons it could well be the best mountain road in Spain.

If you’re dreaming about travelling further afield, how about embarking on the trip of a lifetime through Patagonia without having to quit your job, sell the house, and wave goodbye to your friends and family?That’s right, in the new issue of ABR, Julian Challis tells you how you can explore the South America and journey to ‘the end of the world’ at Tierra del Fuego in just two weeks. Now that beats a fortnight on the Costa del Sol.

But what if you want to venture somewhere few motorcyclists dare to travel? Somewhere just a few of days’ ride away from the UK that’s bursting with sensational roads, stunning landscapes, and a rich culture.

In the lattest issue of the mag, Ian Lloyd Neubauer reveals what it’s like to explore Kosovo, a country with a violent past that is ripe for an epic adventure.

Sensational UK routes

Closer to home, I’ve included a fascinating UK route in the new issue of ABR that takes you on a search for the truth behind the myth that is Merlin the Magician.

Billy Johnson has crafted a ride that takes you to where the legendary figure was supposedly born, his burial site, and the caves the magician is said to have hidden King Arthur’s vast treasure in. Finders keepers.

Elsewhere in the mag, you’ll discover seven of the best historic biking routes in the UK complete with maps, SatNav waypoints, and GPX files to download.

So, if you fancy riding along the frontier of the Roman Empire, touring the ancient sites of the Viking Way, or exploring the three Kingdoms of Saxon Britain, we’ve got you covered.

Expert bike reviews

What’s the best bike you’ve ever ridden? For ABR founder Alun Davies, it’s the new for 2023 Ducati Multistrada V4 Rally.

That’s right, inside the new issue of the mag you can find out why the man who has ridden pretty much every adventure and touring bike produced over the past decade reckons the Italian manufacturer has come up with a bike to top them all.

You can also discover what it’s like to ride one of the most advanced production motorcycles ever made, the Yamaha Tracer 9 GT+ after we tested it on the coastal roads of Sardinia.

And we give you the lowdown on what it’s like to live with the latest and greatest adventure and touring bikes, including the Honda XL750 Transalp, the Suzuki V-Strom 800DE, the Royal Enfield Himalayan, the Moto Morini X-Cape, and the BMW R 125O RS, in ABR’s longtermer reviews section.

Get it right on your next adventure

To help you get ready for your next tour, you’ll find a series of masterclasses from our panel of handpicked motorcycling experts.

The latest issue of the mag explains the easy way to nail the correct throttle technique to improve your cornering on those twisting mountain passes.

There’s also invaluable advice on how to embrace lightweight bike touring, an explanation on the law around listening to music while you ride, and a step by step guide about how to inject a sense of drama into your bike photos.

Jacket reviews, interviews, hot new gear, the world’s best roads, and more…

There’s so much adventure biking inspiration, knowledge, and entertainment, crammed into the latest issue of ABR, that I can’t into it all here, but rest assured we’ve got all your motorcycling needs covered.

If you’re looking for a new leather riding jacket that’s perfect for a summer tour, we’ve tested the best around.

There’s also an interview with TV presenter, author, and SAS hero Jay Morton who explains how the freedom and purpose provided by motorcycling can help anyone live an adventurous life.

We also round up the hottest new bike gear and accessories around and put Dunlop’s new 50/50 tyre to the test.

2023 ABR Festival highlights

And of course, we couldn’t publish the July/August issue of ABR without taking a look back at the greatest celebration of adventure biking ever held.

That’s right, you can relive the highlights of the ABR Festival 2023, or for those of you who weren’t there, see what you missed out on.
