Will the Daytona Smartphone Controller revolutionise phone usage on bikes?
Written by Mike Beddows   

As we all know, it's against the law to use your mobile phone while riding a motorcycle which is perfectly understandable and acceptable. The issue comes when you are using your phone as a satelite navigation system or you have a hands free headset on but wish to take a call. Well, the Daytona Smartphone Controller has been designed to bridge the gap in these situations. The question is, what does it do and how does it help?

ABR's weekend ride: Wales' stunning Llanberis Pass
Written by Rob Slade   

This week's chosen ride is a real corker. Located at the heart of the remarkably scenic Snowdonia National Park, Llanberis Pass (otherwise known as the A4086) is an 18-mile stretch of tarmac that takes you from the village of Capel Curig to the Royal Town of Caernarfon.

The route takes you past the Glyderau mountain group, the beautiful lakes of Llynnau Mymbyr and of course, the magnificence that is Snowdon itself. As you can imagine, the road is an incredible one as it cuts through the Welsh countryside. Expect plenty of greenery and stunning mountain views in abundance.

Battling nature on the road to Kathmandu
Written by Rob Slade   

Swedish adventure rider Henrik Loman has been riding around the world and has so far made it from Ireland to Nepal. Upon reaching the Nepal-China border, Henrik was faced with a challenging prospect ‒ the Araniko Highway, an 89-mile long road that connects the border with Kathmandu. It is said to be one of the most dangerous roads in Nepal due to the extremely steep and exposed slopes on each side of the road. It is this road that Henrik tasked himself to take on. This is his story detailing his battles with monsoon rain, landslides and knee-deep mud on the Araniko Highway.

Kawasaki Versys 650 review
Written by Alun Davies   

Kawasaki's updated 2015 version of the Versys 650 has gone through a series of changes in an effort to condolidate the manufacturer's position in the mid-range tourer market. Indeed, the market is a fiercely contested one with other machines such as the Suzuki 650 V-Strom vying for that top spot as motorcyclists concede that perhaps a sub-70bhp machine is perfectly adequate for their needs. The question is, have the Versys' upgrades done enough to make it top dog in the mid-range tourer market? Alun Davies put one through its paces to find out.

10 reasons to go to Motorcycle Live
Written by Rob Slade   

Advertisement As the nights draw in and the weather starts taking a turn for the worst, it's understandable that you may be feeling a bit glum about your motorcycling prospects. But look on the bright side, the end of summer also means that we're getting closer to Motorcycle Live, an event that is surely in most motorcyclist's diaries.

Motorcycle Live 2015 marks 100 years since modern motorcycling sprang to life with the introduction the Triumph Model H. This year’s show will fire up on Saturday 28 November at The NEC, Birmingham and run at full revs for nine days until Sunday 6 December, with four halls jam-packed with features that will see modern motorcycling come to life.

ABR's weekend ride: St Ives to St Just along Cornwall's finest road
Written by Rob Slade   

The summer may be over and the weather may be turning but that doesn’t mean you should avoid heading down to sunny Cornwall. In fact, now is probably one of the best times to visit as you can avoid the crowds of summer tourists while still (think positive) experiencing some decent weather.

If you’re after some decent riding (who isn’t?) then you’ve come to the right place. It may not have the rugged mountains of the north but this 130mile stretch of the B3306 certainly makes up for it with stunning views of the coast and exhilerating riding. Read on to find out everything you need to know.

Video of the week: Riding to the top of the world
Written by Rob Slade   

The latest installment of video of the week follows photographer and filmmaker Dan Greening who, along with a friend, goes in search of the highest road in the world. Travelling west from Kathmandu, into India and via Agra and Delhi, the ride to the Himalayas on a KTM 990 Adventure and a BMW F650GS Dakar before reaching the highest motorable pass on Earth.

Along the way they experience the sights, smells and sounds of vibrant cities, travel through incredible scenery and take on some tough roads and pretty gnarly river crossings. The entire video is shot really well and does a great job of showing the outstanding scenery along the way. It will certainly make you long for your next big trip.

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

The latest forum roundup sees some pretty interesting conversations taking place over the past week including whether expensive gear is actually worth the outlay and how frustrating slow drivers can be. On top of that, there's a rather amusing video of a motorcycle instructor showing how not to ride and someone is looking for advice on motorcycle sheds.

The ABR guide to the highest passes in England
Written by Alun Davies   

If you’re anything like us, you love a decent mountain pass. Amazing scenery, challenging corners and hardly another soul around. There’s just something much more mesmerising about riding at altitude rather than being at sea level.

With that in mind, ABR teamed up with TomTom in the latest edition of the magazine (issue 29 Jul/Aug) in an effort to reveal the three highest passes in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

We honestly believe that as a result of this quest, we have inadvertently created a British road trip of epic proportions. It didn’t really feel right keeping it to ourselves, so we thought we’d give you a glimpse of that with the English section. Without further delay, here are the highest (and some of most rewarding) passes in England.
