My first foray to Ireland on the motorbike and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Big thanks to Flintlock and Heff for organising the facilities and the rideout! Looking forward to next year already!

Re: Advice appreciated for a newbie to biking not just adventure riding

Hi Thanks for all the advice. I had a great time on the BMW Off Road Skills course a couple of weeks ago (riding the 650 Sertao), then test rode a Tiger 800 (road) and a Suzuki GSX1250FA last weekend for comparison. I decided I want a bike that I can use for touring, and if I want to go serious off ...

Re: Advice appreciated for a newbie to biking not just adventure riding

Hi Dave DRZ I looked at the Tiger 800/800XC having been in Youles a few times on scooter related duties (as they are also a Vespa dealer). In terms of pricing, they are more expensive than a V-Strom but I'm shocked to see the RRP for a V-Strom with Adventure pack coming in at 7900 GBP. So in terms o...

Re: Advice appreciated for a newbie to biking not just adventure riding

Thanks for all the replies and encouragement so far. I've already booked to do a BMW off road skills course in a couple of weeks time, and that should be on the 650 GS Sertao mentioned. I'm 6 foot tall, I don't think height is a problem, it's just confidence on different bikes to be gained. I have a...

Advice appreciated for a newbie to biking not just adventure riding

Hi all I live in Manchester. I'm currently in a hotel room in a ski resort in France, having picked up a copy of Issue 15 of Adventure Bike Rider at the airport - what motivation. I love the outdoors and travelling. A few years ago I trekked from Chamonix to Zermatt in the summer, and later did the ...
