June 2018

Adventure bikes get more popular every year and they’re getting more sophisticated with it…generally. In this issue we have the latest hi-tech trailies tackling snowy Snowdonia.

They’re a sharp contrast to the low-cost, low-tech Royal Enfield Himalayan — a bike that really was built to ride in the world’s highest mountains. Which would give the kind of adventure that’s right for you?

It’s not all adventure bikes — there are plenty of other great machines in this issue. We have good-value used naked bikes, sports tourers, sportsbikes and even a potentially game-changing Chinese bike — not to mention all the latest naked roadsters.

But never mind the metal, it’s the riding that counts. The Great British Ride Out continues and we have our first monthly winner - find out how you can get involved here https://www.ride.co.uk/gbro/

Enjoy the issue — and enjoy your ride.
