On the ABR forum: Which large capacity KTM is best?
Written by Rob Slade   

With debates about Brexit making a momentary absence, the activity on last week's forum focused specifically on adventure bikes, gear and touring.

Can you help out any of our readers with question about adventure boots and which large KTM is best for trail riding?

Watch: Police pull over biker, Bavarian style
Written by Bryn Davies   

All to often the internet provides us with footage that shows the law in a bad light, but in this video we catch a glimpse of the Bavarian police's enforcement style when they pull over a motorcyclist.

The biker was riding his dirt bike without a license plate (though he didn't realise, honest) and fails to pull over at the request of the curious gents behind him. As he attempts his own version of The Great Escape, the German fuzz have no problem catching up with him, where they block off his route and begin the process of apprehending him.

Watch: An epic tour of Central and South America in under 2 minutes
Written by Bryn Davies   

We all love to ride, and we all love adventure bikes, but for most of us it's hard to find the time to get out into the wilderness and see the world. Work, family and finances all do their best to keep us at home, so it's exhilarating to see videos of those who are out there and doing it.

And if there's anyone who knows how to put together a video that makes you want to get out and ride, it's Tolga Basol. This guy's been riding around the world for two years now, covering just shy of 26,000 miles on his KTM 1190 Adventure R, and throughout his journey he has been putting together some pretty awesome clips. This one gives us a quick run down of touring through Central and South America, showcasing the incredible scenery, the exciting roads and the many river crossings that Tolga had to battle with.

Watch what happens when you put a motorcycle helmet in a hydraulic press
Written by Bryn Davies   

When Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web we were gifted an incredible tool that would allow us access to all of mankind's knowledge with the tap of a few keys. In true human fashion, instead of taking advantage of the offer, we used it to find cool stuff like this, a guy crushing a motorcycle helmet in a hydraulic press.

It appears that over the last year or so, flattening everyday items in an industrial Bramah press and uploading the carnage to the internet has become a popular and lucrative pursuit for some YouTubers.

Watch: Motorcyclists flirt with death as they ride insane clifftop trail
Written by Rob Slade   

There’s no shortage of videos on YouTube showing footage of motorcyclists tackling gnarly off-road terrain, but every now and then we tend to stumble upon something that literally takes our breath away.

This is one of those times... The video in question follows three amateur enduro riders who take a wrong turn and end up riding a gnarly trail on the edge of an enormous cliffside drop. These guys must have balls of steel.

Is the Stelvio Pass Europe's most exciting road?
Written by Alice Cook

Watch: First person view of a tank slapper at 145mph
Written by Bryn Davies   

Tank slapper. Two words that strike fear into the heart of any motorcyclist. The phenomenon occurs when the front tyre becomes airbourne for a moment and then regains traction outside of the rear tyre's alignment. Oscillations from the front cause the wheel to thrash back and forth, throwing the handlebars from side to side and making the bike buck violently.

In serious instances the ferocity of these oscillations can be enough to rip your hands from the bars, and your feet from the pegs, and that is all too often accompanied by fatal consequences.

Watch: Tiger 800XCx takes on mountain bike
Written by Bryn Davies   

When it comes to close control and technical riding skills there aren't many out there who are better than Kevin Carmichael. Since 1997 he's been performing mind boggling stunts and tricks on two wheels, and we were able to witness them first hand on the recent press launch of the Triumph Explorer 1200, when Kevin made the beastly adventure machine look like a trials bike.

But now he's taken to YouTube to display his credentials as he races Lewis Summers, the 2014 Senior British Down Hill Champion, along the tricky Nevis mountain bike course.
