Welcome to Adventure Bike Rider.

My name is Alun Davies, I live in Stratford upon Avon and this website is up and running because I've far too much free time on my hands. And then there's my life long passion for riding motorcycles and travel and the fact that we've launched a new magazine called...Adventure Bike Rider.

So, other than the warblings of a middle aged man with three bikes (2 Tigers and a Sprint) and a garage full of stuff, what's the big idea? Well, it's like this; I reckon we buy adventure and touring bikes with misty eyed dreams of doing a Ewan and Charlie, or a Ted, or maybe because we're fed up belly flopping over the tank of a sports bike and want a little more comfort. All good enough reasons.

However, in the real world, we probably just get out in the evenings, weekends and travel on one, maybe two, overseas trip per year. Life gets in the way. But then, if you're anything like me, that dream of touring Europe, riding the world, kicking back in a sand blasted Timbuktu and wallowing in the mud on the Siberian 'Road of Bones' gets a little closer every time I throw a leg over my machine, even when I'm riding to Tesco for a croissant

Adventure Bike Rider is a new magazine but we've also been publishing Adventure Travel magazine for the past 15 years. As the founding editor I've been lucky enough to travel the world and engage with its wild places (hiking, climbing, cycling and paddling) and been able to call it work.  But, I've still to travel to most of those places on my motorcycle and it's the thought of doing that which keeps my passion for two wheeled propulsion high. I might end up living my dreams, maybe not, but as long as I believe I'm going to do it and enjoy my riding along the way, that'll do me.

If adventure and touring motorcycles do it for you, sign up and swing on over to the forum and say hi.

A new approach
Great new magazine - sure it's going to grow, world of motorbike adventures needs a bit more down to earth - new approach. Same with the tour business, think there's a bunch of guys & girls who aren't adventure motorbikers - they just want to ride their motorbike with a bit of company and free-spirited adventure, nothing too restricted or totally organised, more flexible exploring stuff - that's what I try to do on our motoexplorers ride to China anyway smilies/kiss.gif

Hey You , October 24, 2011
Hi Martin

I'm not sure what you mean when you say form - we don't have one it's all done through a paypal button. I'm afraid we sold out of issue 5 over 2 months ago. All our contact details are available here http://www.adventurebikerider....ntact.html
