Landlocked in Laos……..   After watching Ewan and Charlie’s “The long way Round” for the third time a monster was born.  Me and two good mates just had to try this adventure motorcycle stuff out first hand. But how? Unlike the two celebrities we had minimal time and funds available.    After some serious beer-storming, Laos was named the destination of choice.  It ticked all the boxes, cheap, still fairly undeveloped and had lots of hills and dirt roads to get lost on.   Fast forward about 3 months and there we were. Vientiane, Laos.  T...

Hi All, We are running a rally from Birmingham to Glencoe and would love to have some bikes along! I am raising money to build Glencoe Mountain Rescue a bespoke Rescue Land Rover to help them save more lives. My good friend Shaun Bowden died last March while we were walking with friends in Scotland, leaving behind a wife and two young children. The Glencoe Mountain Rescue team were fundamental in his search and recovery and the volunteers who make up their team risk their lives in awful conditions for 100's of people each year. So we have ma...

During my recent trip to Andalucia in southern Spain, my pal Alan and me set off on a long trail with the aim of getting back to our hotel for an early evening drink. No chance... We get to the westerly entrance to the Sierra de las Nieves. I remember this from my visit ten years ago and know that eventually it leads back to our hotel some 25k away and entirely on gravel tracks. This is stunning off road riding and for an enduro bike this is the equivalent of a race track or motorway. It’s fast and exhilarating. The scenery is alpine. ...

We know our breakdown cover is useless in Morocco. So what do we do when we need help? My pal Steve and me on GS1200’s and John on an Aprilia Caponord have been in Morocco for a few days now and are heading north for Marrakesh after an overnight stay in Ouarzazate. We come in over the famous Tizi n’Tichka pass. During the decent into Marrakesh, Steve’s bike dies but then re-starts. We carry on and what follows is our experience when a problem becomes one of the highlights of our trip. We follow my Sat Nav into the Medina, which ba...

The TTR 250 is a great bike but the stock exhaust is over restrictive, this is how I modified the rear section to free up the breathing and give it a throatier sound. Full detail on my facebook page, just follow the link: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.492210867531305.1073741829.123637337721995&type=3  ...

Thought I'd start a quick blog. Should have started it last year when I first signed up on this forum, but I have been a bit too busy with workload. Well, instead of putting it off any longer, I thought I'd bite the bullet and get on with writing up my experiences, in the hope that it might prove informative to some, and maybe even encourage more people to take to the dirt bike scene.   The BikeAs some may see from my first posts, I bought myself a 1998 Honda XR400R last May 9 (2012), as I wanted to get some decent off-road dirt bike experie...

Travelling around SE Asia by motorbike is reckoned by many to be the best way of exploring this fascinating part of the world and meeting up with the locals, who themselves typically favour getting around by bike over all other forms of travel. When travelling by car is impossible or at least intimidating, bikes are the answer. There are dozens of last minute holiday deals to areas of Southeast Asia with excellent bike trails, so consider hiring a bike in Vietnam or Cambodia and setting out for the experience of a lifetime. Speeding past...

This is by no means a guide covering every question that could be asked about going to the famous Elefant Rally in Germany but it might help one of two thinking of going for the first time. We've been 4 times now (that'll be 5 in a few weeks) and have seen mud, blizzards, -20c temperatures and snowdrifts blocking the access road so there can't be much more to hit us. Where is it? The organisers describe it as being in Loh/Thurmansbang - Solla. Well that's not overly accurate but if you go to the BVDM website it tells you the motorway junction ...

We have just ridden 53,800 kilometers from Cape Town to Shanghai. 12,300 Kms were in China (incl. Tibet). I rode together with my girlfriend, who two months before we set didn't have a driving licence. We rode KTM 990 Adventures across Africa, Middle East and Europe and in China we rode the surprisingly good, CF Moto 650 TR which is the first good quality touring bike made in China. The next leg is Alaska to Chile and we will ride the new KTM/CF Moto Adventure bike. Our pictures and diary are at www.bigbiketrip.net ...

Yup, because that’s at the forefront of your mind as you’re tearing across the sandy dunes of Morocco or weaving your way across a forest trail, “will my biking impact on my life insurance policy?” To be fair, if you’re young and in good health, you might not have life insurance in the first place, let alone worry about how donning the leathers will impact it. It’s something that pays to think about, though, as you might be paying more as a result.

Don't wether this is the right page to do this but looking for any advice on next years Elephant rally in Germany. Is there a web site I can visit that will give me any details 1, (in english please as my german is rubbish). Also if there's anybody in the Kent area or South east thats thinking of going please plase get in touch at, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
