Watch: First person view of a tank slapper at 145mph
Written by Bryn Davies   

Tank slapper. Two words that strike fear into the heart of any motorcyclist. The phenomenon occurs when the front tyre becomes airbourne for a moment and then regains traction outside of the rear tyre's alignment. Oscillations from the front cause the wheel to thrash back and forth, throwing the handlebars from side to side and making the bike buck violently.

In serious instances the ferocity of these oscillations can be enough to rip your hands from the bars, and your feet from the pegs, and that is all too often accompanied by fatal consequences.

Watch: Tiger 800XCx takes on mountain bike
Written by Bryn Davies   

When it comes to close control and technical riding skills there aren't many out there who are better than Kevin Carmichael. Since 1997 he's been performing mind boggling stunts and tricks on two wheels, and we were able to witness them first hand on the recent press launch of the Triumph Explorer 1200, when Kevin made the beastly adventure machine look like a trials bike.

But now he's taken to YouTube to display his credentials as he races Lewis Summers, the 2014 Senior British Down Hill Champion, along the tricky Nevis mountain bike course.

Discover Britain: Touring the beautiful South & South East Coast
Written by Bryn Davies   

Throughout 2016, with the help of TomTom we've set out to map out a series of weekend rides around the coast of England and Wales that can be linked up to form one epic, week-long circumnavigation of our home countries.

Our first instalment, in issue 32 of Adventure Bike Rider, took from Cardiff to Snowdonia, while our second route saw us exploring the incredible scenery and landscapes of the South West Coast. Following on from where we left off we've ridden the south coast of England, from Exmouth all the way around to Faversham on the north coast of Kent.

Harlow Council releases clarification statement on ride out injuction
Written by Bryn Davies   

Yesterday we reported that Harlow Council had taken out an injunction to prevent riders from participating in unauthorised ride outs consisting of two or more vehicles. Naturally, the motorcycling community was incensed with the court order, and many of you guys voiced your opinions on our Facebook page and across the internet.

It seems that Harlow Council has taken note of the outrage, and so yesterday a statement was released to clarify the terms of the injunction.

Harlow Council takes out injunction to prevent motorcyclists riding in groups of two or more
Written by Bryn Davies   

Harlow Council has taken out an injuction against motorcyclists which prevents them from travelling in 'unauthorised' groups of two or more riders.

The injuction, which is being enforced with the support of Essex Police, has already been used to prevent a ride out that was planned for last Saturday as a memorial to a young student, Marcel Bellairs-Honniss, who died in March.

Police launch campaign to tackle distracted drivers
Written by Rob Slade   

People speaking on the phone, doing their make-up or generally being distracted while driving pose a risk to all road users, especially to motorcyclists who are much more vulnerable and less easily spotted on the roads.

To combat this worrying trend, West Midlands Police and the Central Motorway Police Group (CMPG) have launched a campaign to tackle the dangers of distracted driving with the help of a new simulator which they hope will help cut road deaths.

Watch: Chris Birch shows us how a big adventure bike should be ridden off-road
Written by Bryn Davies   

If there's just one video you should watch that proves that big, weighty adventure motorcycles can be potent off-road machines, then this is it. It shows Chris Birch, a Kiwi with an impressive talent for commanding all things two wheels, thrashing his KTM 1190 Adventure R along a gnarly forest trail that's full of ruts, knee-deep mud, expansive water crossings and tricky rocky sections.

It starts off with Chris meeting up with two pals, Phil and Bryce, who happen to be Red Bull Romaniacs veterans (basically, they're shit hot at riding off-road), and their KTM 300 EXCs. Given the type of terrain that the trio will be traversing, their machines appear to be a sensible choice, so when Chris rolls his towering KTM 1190 Adventure R out of the van things start to get interesting.


Airbus manufactures 3D printed motorcycle
Written by Bryn Davies   

A new player has entered the motorcycle manufacturing game, and it's not who you'd expect. Airbus, the aviation giants which is renowned for making aircraft and military equipment, has begun development of a lightweight, electric motorcycle, and the unique part about it? The frame of it is entirely 3D printed.

The new motorcycle, named the Light Rider, was developed by APWorks, a subsidiary to Airbus Group, to showcase exactly what the company's pioneering Scalmalloy material is capable of.

On the ABR forum last week...
Written by Rob Slade   

With no debates about Donald Trump or Brexit, attention on the forum turned to the one topic that brings everyone together, bikes.

Specifically, last week on the forum there were plenty of technical queries about camping equipment and tyre choices a well as debates about PCP deals and must-have gear for new adventure bike riders.
