Features in this months' issue...

Fun bikes for every budget

Whether it’s a used Fireblade for £3000 or a brand new Ducati Monster 821 for £9000, there’s never been a better choice of bikes that are brilliant for blasting around in the sunshine.


Modern waxed cotton

We test brand new jackets that have that classic look but use modern crash protection and weatherproofing.


Hardcore off-roading


There’s a huge growth of interest in off-roading. But where do you go after you’ve done a beginners’ course? We try a challenging option.


Used buying guide: Ducati Multistrada 1200

It’s the bike that bought superbike performance to the adventure bike class. They cost £13,000 new, but you can get a four-year-old Multistrada for £8000 if you know what you’re looking for.

Every month we offer you a great subscription offer; this month you can get a free Oxford magnetic tank bag worth £39.99 when you sign up to either the print or digital edition, or if digital is more your thing, check out the RiDE magazine app on the Apple Newstand, Google Play and Nook by Barnes and Noble.
