Last chance for Salt and Gold tour
Written by Jon   
Time is running out to join the ride through Mauritania and into Mali on the final Salt and Gold tour. The third in the series of tours through North Africa by organiser Beast of Burden is set for early 2011, though exact dates have not yet been announced.

“We work with local contacts and independent experts to provide our clients with reliable solutions in difficult, complex and changing scenarios,” said BoB. “During the winter, we organise specialist motorcycle expeditions into remote regions of the Sahara. These are rare opportunities to ride deep into the desert and explore otherwise unreachable wilderness.

Fresh protection for F800
Written by Jon   

Altrider protection for BMW F800 GSThe BMW F800 GS has had three years building its reputation as a great on and off roader. That means three years of bracing against the wind on the motorway and tearing up that gnarly single track. Those of you who have pushed the bike to its (or your) limit and taken a spill or two may be pleased to hear there is a new protection setup on offer from US-based Altrider.

Triumph confirm new adventure bikes
Written by Alun   

The following has just been released by Triumph. I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see the new adventure machine from Hinckley.


In response to articles appearing in the motorcycle press, Triumph Motorcycles can confirm that it is developing two all-new ‘adventure’ models, due for launch later this year.
A new microsite has been launched at www.triumphadventure.com where customers can register their interest and receive monthly updates.
No further information regarding the new models will be released at this time.

Adventure Bike Rider Magazine
Written by Alun   

Okay, I'm going to let you in on a little secret. For the past 15 years I've been publishing a magazine called Adventure Travel. If you're into hiking, climbing and catching incurable diseases in jungles it'll be right up your street. But that's no secret. This is........we've been working behind the scenes on a new magazine called Adventure Bike Rider and the 1st issue is getting close to going to print.

Over the past few months I've been out and about visiting the great and the good in the motorcycle industry and the support for the new title has been fantastic. All the major manufacturers are supporting the launch, including BMW, Yamaha, Ducati, Kawasaki, Honda etc. To a company they all agreed that there is a gaping hole on the newsagents shelf for a title called 'Adventure Bike Rider'.

The front cover image I've posted here is a work in progress, just something to give you a flavour of what's to come. I'll post up more details over the next two weeks as the print date gets closer. Spread the word.

 
New Wireless Entertainment System
Written by Alun   

Interphone F2 City Bluetooth Wireless Motorcycle Entertainment SystemIf you just can't be out of touch, need music on the move or you're having an affair with the voice on your GPS you might want to check out the Interphone F2 City Bluetooth Wireless Motorcycle Entertainment System.

 Priced at just £99.00 including VAT, the F2 City comes with features normally found on systems costing twice as much, and offers quick and easy connection to a mobile phone or satellite navigation system without messy wires.


The Interphone F2 City can be paired with two Bluetooth enabled devices simultaneously, such as mobile phone and satellite navigation, enabling the rider to make and receive telephone calls hands-free, while getting clear GPS directions, without the need to switch between devices. It can also be connected to a range of portable music players via the stereo plug-in facility - so riders can add their favourite soundtrack to their route.

Good news for European motorcycle tourers
Written by Alun   

cheaper motorcycle touring in europeIt's the start of the motorcycle touring season when thousands of Brits pack on up and ride on out over to the continent. And the good news is, the £ in your pocket hit an 18 month high against the Euro yesterday, which in lay mans terms means...more beer money.

Talk to someone who toured in the EU zone last year and they'll no doubt tell you tales of financial woe as sterling looked to be heading towards parity with the Euro. Today the £ buys you 1.21 Euro and the word on the street is that it's likely to move higher in the short to medium term as the Euro Zone battles with the financial irregularities between its member states.

Video of the week - River crossings in Iceland
Written by Alun   

crossing river icelandForget Icelandic volcanoes and check out the adventure motorcycle opportunities on this island in the middle of the north Atlantic.

About 10 years ago I picked up my backpack and flew to Iceland with a couple of mates. We took a bus to the northern coast of the island disembarked and then started to hike through the interior to the southern coast.

Along the way we had to cross huge expanses of wilderness and swollen glacier melt rivers and at the time I thought 'I'd love to do this on my motorcycle'.

In the following video keep a look out for the river crossing with the camp site in the background, this is the start of the The Landmannalaugar Trail which heads over to Thorsmork and then up and over what is now an infamous volcano, Eyjafjallajokull. This is where we finished our walk and stood on top of the volcano which is now causing all the air travel chaos.

Off Road in Southern Spain
Written by Alun   

A couple of years back I travelled with a group of motorcycle novices to have a crack at off-road riding in the Sierra Nevada mountains of Southern Spain. The young inexperienced guns took to it well and went on to become Leon Haslam, Cal Crutchlow, James Ellison, Steve Brogan and Mick Extance. The old guy typing this came back with a triple fracture, suspected deep view thrombosis and a wide, wide smile. Here's the feature I wrote for Adventure Travel magazine about our trip to the high Sierra.

To give you an idea of the image quality of these cameras we've uploaded some sample footage from each device to YouTube so that you can see how they perform for yourself. To get a true representation of the camera's quality, make sure that you're watching the video on its highest quality setting (click the settings icon on the YouTube video and click 1080p).

Video of the week - Sandstorms
Written by Alun   

SandstormLast weeks video showed you what it was like to ride up Erg Chebbi, the biggest dunes in Morocco, on a motorcycle. All great fun but what happens when it works the other way, when those dunes decide it's pay back time and decide to ride all over you.

You'll not come across sandstorms that often, especially on a bimble through the Cotswolds, but there's always a possibility that you'll encounter one when riding through the Middle East and North African countries such as Morocco. Many years ago on a hike through the Sahara with three mates I got caught out in a sandstorm during the night, having viewed this video I'm glad it wasn't during the day. If I'd seen this monster coming my way, I'd have bricked it....
