An epic motorcycle adventure through the jungles of Cambodia
Written by Julian Challis   

We are drenched. We are filthy. We are exhausted. But the grins on all 10 of our faces, at the roadside café, are wider than the vast dirt road we have just left. It's only day three of our adventure in Cambodia and we are all already completely hooked on this beautiful country.

From the life-affirming joy of flat tracking and the sweeping curves of the plantation highways to the technical trails through the dense jungle, the riding here has been beyond what any of us could have ever imagined. We've hauled bikes out of deep mud, crossed seat-deep creeks that looked too treacherous to walk and experienced some of the warmest hospitality a traveller could ever hope for. And there's still over a week left...

WIN a £100 Bike Nation voucher and a year's subscription to ABR!
Written by Bryn Davies   

In a celebration to all things adventure motorcycling, and in an attempt to spice up the monotony of the 9 – 5 rat race, I rode a green lane or two on my way into work every day for a week. And let me tell you this. For the past six – or – so years, I've tried all sorts to start the day off right. I've dragged myself out of bed to go to the gym, pulled on my shorts to go for a run, and channelled my inner Buddah with some meditation, but none of these got me set up for the day like green laning to work did.

4 things we love about the KTM 1290 Super Duke GT
Written by Bryn Davies   

When KTM announced the launch of the Super Duke GT, eyebrows were raised. How could the Austrian manufacturer attach the GT moniker (GT meaning Grand Turismo) to a super naked bike which focused on speed, performance and hooliganism? The answer became clear as soon we got chance to ride one: by making it more comfortable, adding a set of panniers, including the technology that makes the 1290 Super Adventure such a phenomenal machine, and bolting a screen onto the front.

Adventure bike this is not (nor does it claim to be), but super fun tourer it is, and if you're heading over to Europe to experience the thrill of the Alpine passes it's an absolute delight. After spending a few weeks with the bike in our garage, I found myself increasingly looking for excuses to go out for a spin, and when out, looking for the bendiest roads I could find. It harnesses the power and handling of a performance bike and bundles it into a sexy package that's a bit less intimidating, but every bit exciting.

You've woken up to the pleasant surprise of a perfect sunny Sunday morning, even though the weather man said there was going to be rain – result! Cue you getting ready as fast as you can because you were just itching to take the bike out for a spin. You've got odd socks on, you've forgotten your wallet and god knows what else, but who cares? You'll only be out for a few hours anyway.

You're out enjoying your ride when the unthinkable happens...

6 untidy garage problems that all messy bikers can relate to
Written by Naomi Dunbar   

If you're anything like me, then you've got one hell of a messy garage. I'm constantly tripping over crap on the floor, things are piled up here, there and everywhere and where on earth did I put...? Who knows. So as you can imagine, finding my motorbike let alone any of my motorbike gear in this hot mess of a garage, proves somewhat of a challenge for me. Any of this sound familiar to you?

So with that in mind, here at ABR we've teamed up with the folks at BikerTidy to look at six untidy garage problems that all of us messy bikers can relate to, and luckily, they have a few tricks up their sleeve that could help us resolve our problems (and most importantly, keep the peace in our households).

Written by Naomi Dunbar   

The Ducati Mulistrada 1200 Enduro has had a bit of jazzing up along with a few new spicy extras added to the mix to make the all new Pro version.

Ducati claims that the bike has been designed with riders who want to get out and explore the off-road trails and so, on the new 1200 Enduro Pro version you'll find Pirelli Scorpion™ rally tyres, fitted as standard. These tyres are ideally suited for off the beaten track use, but, will also ensure performance on the roads too.

Green Lane to Work Week Day 4: Are we all hooligans?
Written by Bryn Davies   

Green Lane to Work Week is almost over, and I’m a little bit sad about that. Over the last four days we’ve teamed up with Bennetts to spice up our life on two wheels, and I’ve been getting up earlier to head off in search of a green lane to ride on my morning commute to work. The main benefit, other than the fact that I’m out on the bike, has been that it seems to be the perfect way to start my day, and I’m sure it has been for you guys who have joined us as well.
