The new BMW F800GS Adventure
Written by Paul Jennison   

BMW Motorrad has introduced the new F 800 GS Adventure. Following in the tradition of the iconic boxer-powered GS Adventure models, the F 800 GS Adventure offers the authentic ‘GS Adventure experience’ in this segment for the very first time.


Based on the class-defining middleweight F 800 GS, the new Adventure model delivers an unmatched combination of agility, touring practicality and off-road capability. It also offers an ‘enduro’ riding mode, which alters the suspension, traction control and ABS settings, for optimal off-road riding at the touch of a button.

Advertising Feature: Are you properly protected?
Written by Amber Howard   

Many dream of a motorcycle holiday because of the freedom it promises, you can simply hop on a bike any time and ride off into the sunset, with only enough to fill your tank bag.

However, when you really start to plan and research the trip it can become more complicated and quite confusing. For a standard holiday abroad you would simply invest in travel insurance for yourself and your possessions; however on a biking trip you also want to make sure your bike is protected too, and that you’re covered for biking.

Written by AE   

A New look for Touratech’s Premier Event

Touratech UK’s flagship storeTouratech UK’s flagship store, will once again be holding its massively popular Travel Event on May 4th-6th 2013 in Ystradgynlais, South Wales.

This will be the 5th annual Travel Event held at this location and it attracts people from all over Europe. This year the Touratech Travel event will see a big upheaval and its going to be great! They have all the old favourites - talks, workshops, off road and on road ride outs (including the famous Walters Arena open for riding on the Sunday), but this time they can do even better than that!

Touratech Travel Event

This year you will be able to browse the extended showroom which is 3 times bigger than last year, you can hear from new speakers, listen to live music in the evenings and you can try your hand at the Brand New Touratech Trophy. The Touratech Trophy is a new idea for this years event. A friendly team competition, it will see competitors put into random teams of ten. The teams will then compete over the Saturday and Sunday to be the best team. The genius of Touratech’s idea is that the teams will be picked out of a hat. This encourages the competitors to mix and meet new like-minded people while at the same time you don’t get 1 team of top riders that no-one has a hope of beating. This means the best people in the team will have to help the weaker riders improve if they want to win! On the Sunday afternoon the winning team of ten will go into an every man for themselves final. Nick Plumb, MD of Touratech UK says “It’s a great way to have a friendly competition, and it gets rid of any elitism! Most competitions like this cost hundreds to enter but at £30 to compete and only £10 to come to the event it’s great value. We are really excited!”

Talks at Touratech Travel Event

The Travel Event starts on Friday evening (04/05/13) with a quiz and open mic night, On Saturday and Sunday they will be offering talks, workshops, ride outs and of course some retail therapy. All while being able to watch the various rounds of the Touratech Trophy. In the evenings there will be talks including Austin Vince and Nick Sanders, a great talk show from Graham Hoskins and live music. Sunday will also see the opportunity for people to go up to Walters Arena and play off road! Finally on the Bank holiday Monday there will be a last ride out and a final goodbye before everyone starts heading home at midday. Tickets to attend (including camping) is £10 a person and to enter the Touratech Trophy is just £30 (which includes a T-Shirt and Competitor medal). See you there!

ABR to ride 12,500 miles aboard a Van Van 125 for H4H
Written by Em-J   

 

An ABR from Guildford is planning to ride 12,500 miles across two continents, 19 countries, mountain ranges and deserts to raise funds for Help for Heroes.

Will Moore, 44, will be leaving London on 3 September bound for Johannesburg, South Africa. His journey aboard a Suzuki Van Van will take him across some of the toughest terrain on the planet with little more than his wits and 125ccs of oomph to get him there.

“I am taking an under-powered Van Van to get the attention this cause deserves. And because it's just funny,” says ex-soldier Will. “Our brave Servicemen serve our country with such professionalism, pride, dedication and determination. I need the Great British public to get behind my challenge.”

WIN! Tutoro Auto Deluxe Kit
Written by AE   

The Tutoro Auto is an all-new automatic chain-oiling device with a completely unique ground-breaking self-actuating system.

Tutoro Auto chain oilerBeautifully engineered and constructed from the highest grade materials, the Tutoro Auto raises the industry benchmark for quality and strength while its unique autonomous, self-actuation system negates the need to connect it to any of the motorcycle’s electrical, engine or air induction systems.

The Tutoro Auto is suitable for DIY installation and takes 45 minutes or less to do so. No specialist tools or knowledge are required. The Auto is approximately 100mm long and 45mm in diameter, so it’s easy to find it a home on your bike while still holding sufficient oil for over 1,000 miles of riding!

The Tutoro system works by using the vertical inertia direction changes and extending the apogee dwell period of the primary valve. The system is both robust and sensitive resulting in a device that functions correctly on every road surface.

The Tutoro Auto comes with comprehensive fitting instructions and the additional benefit of a range of instructional videos available on the website. If you’re not sure about fitting it yourself, a qualified mechanic will be able to do it for you in less than half an hour. The Tutoro Auto is available in a range of three kits. For more information go to www.tutorochainoiler.com

For this week’s ABR online competition, we have 3 Tutoro Auto Deluxe Kits to give away to three lucky winners, one of whom will also win a free fitting by Tutoro themselves!  (This will be by appointment at Tutoro’s business unit in the Forest of Dean).  To win one of these fab prizes, simply answer this question:

"What specialist tools are required to fit the Tutoro Auto?"

As usual, send your answers by email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

The closing date for this competition is Thursday 18th April and the lucky winner will be announced on this website on Monday 22nd April 2013, so good luck and watch this space!

New ABR-ing documentary charts brothers’ circumnavigation of China
Written by Em-J   

Regular readers and visitors to this site will be familiar with the Pyle brothers’ eastern exploits, but for those ABRs still in the dark, here’s a quick recap…

In 2010, Canadian ABRs Colin and Ryan Pyle set out from Shanghai on a 65-day circumnavigation of China’s borderlands on a pair of BMW F 800 GSs. Their 11,184-mile adventure, dubbed the MK Ride, saw them travel through some of China’s most impenetrable and inhospitable parts, tiptoeing the China-Mongolia border, and busting through miles of red tape and close shaves to make the journey happen.

Their ride has since been recognised by Guinness as setting the world record for the most kilometres completed in a single country, in a continuous journey and without backtracking and repetition.

A documentary of their incredible trip called, unsurprisingly, The Middle Kingdom Ride, is due to air on the Travel Channel on Wednesday 10 April, at 8pm. We reckon it’ll be well worth a watch (especially if this weather continues).

 

 

 
Ducati launches the Strada Tour
Written by Em-J   

 

Touring on a Ducati for many would be a dream adventure, and now with the Strada range of Ducati motorcycles, that dream is easier than ever to fulfil. The Strada concept began with the Multistrada and has now been expanded this year with the addition of the new Hyperstrada and the Diavel Strada.

The Strada Tour is an evolution of the popular Ducati Roadshow, which has run over the last three years, covering the length and breadth of the UK. This year, the Strada Tour will consist of 33 dates beginning on 6 April and running until 4 August and will feature extended rides up to a maximum of one-and-a-half hours.

These test rides have been designed to give customers more time to evaluate the bike’s touring and long-distance appeal. The local Ducati dealer will lead riders on a specially chosen route, taking in a variety of roads to fully test the bike’s touring capabilities and also give pillion riders the chance to assess the comfort of these machines.

How to ride Spain and Morocco
Written by Em-J   

 

Spain and Morocco offer a wealth of exciting routes for ABRs combining unbeatable riding, stunning scenery, and enticing history and culture, all easily accessible within a two-week holiday or even less. But with summer fast approaching and thoughts turning to planning tours, what’s the best way to get the most out of these top biking destinations? It seems everyone has an opinion, but what makes the difference between a pleasant ride in the sunshine and a truly one-off experience?

We are offering long distance riding in the Spanish Pyrenees. The Pyrenees offers great opportunities for endless off road riding on fantastic tracks and routes with little chance of meeting others. This trip is the ultimate out door experience camping in mountain locations under the stars (or as we prefer in tents!), with a new location every night where a support vehicle will meet us so no need to carry bulk luggage.
