Written by Rob Slade   

So you fancy bagging yourself a new adventure bike but you don't want to blow too much cash. Or maybe you're just getting into the adventure motorcycling scene and you don't want to go too full on right away. Well, luckily for you we've devised a list of five trusty steeds available for bargain prices.

Some are proper go-anywhere machines capable of handling the rough stuff, while others may be more suited to touring Europe and the British Isles in harmonious comfort. What all of these motorcycles have in common is that they can be pinched at affordable prices while offering the fun and thrills that adventure motorcycling brings with it. Without further ado, here are five adventure bikes for under £3,000.

Video of the week: Extreme off-road riding on the BMW R1200GSA
Written by Rob Slade   

It's no secret that BMW splits the adventure motorcycling community in half with those that swear by the German manufacturer and those who love to hate it. Among the criticisms that many BMWs face is the genuine off-road capability of the GS models.

Trawl the ABR Facebook page and forum and you'll find plenty of people putting the bikes down compared to other machines. Well, this week's featured video shows just how capable the BMW R1200GSA can actually be when off-road and in the hands of a skillful rider.

Video of the week: Five months and 21,000 miles around China
Written by Rob Slade   

China isn't always at the top of a motorcyclist's bucket list, and even if it is there are so many logistical challenges standing in the way. But that didn't manage to stop this couple who managed to cover an astounding 20,727 miles on their five month trip around all of China's 33 provinces.

What makes the journey even more amazing is the fact that they did all of this on their Chinese-made CFMOTO 650TR and had to ride on ridiculous tracks reduced to rubble and mountain roads that looked as though they'd wash away at any minute... all while dodging crazy truck drivers.

The internet reacted to the Ronnie Pickering road rage video and the results are priceless
Written by Rob Slade   

If you haven't already watched the video of Ronnie Pickering in a fit of rage after being overtaken by a moped then where have you been?! It's everywhere! The video shows a motorcyclist on a moped overtake a Citroen Picasso at a junction before being hounded by the driver and subsequently threated with a bare knuckle fight.

By far the best bit has to be the driver's use of the phrase, "Do you know who I am?" After a short exchange, he finally splurts out "Ronnie Pickering", not once, not twice, but three times. We sure know who you are now Ronnie.

As you might have guessed, the video has now gone viral and the internet has responded in the most amazing fashion. These video mashups are pure comedy gold!
