    Honda Transalp Ride Along

    Honda Transalp Ride Along

    This podcast was taken from the audio of the Honda Transalp ride-along video by ABR



    The Honda Transalp proved a capable machine for James back in February in its press release in Portugal. But how does this new mid-sized adventure bike from Honda fare for the everyday ride?

    To find out ABR Editor James puts his review of the Transalp to the side, forgetting the magnificent twisting turns and Dakar rally tracks of Portugal. For the measured and predictable country, and green lanes of Stratford Upon Avon. All to find out how this bike handles the everyday ride.

    This video wouldn't have been possible without the help and support of our friends at Halvarrsons. Halvavarrsons offers elite motorcycling gear for any adventure biking conditions ensuring you're weather-resistant and safe. Check out the jacket and gloves we used for this review, the Gruven Jacket and Ljusdal gloves below.

    The best tyres for your adventure bike? | ABR Garage Episode 16

    The best tyres for your adventure bike? | ABR Garage Episode 16

    We sat down with tyre expert Gary from Bridgestone and picked his brain about the best tyres to use for your adventure bike. Adventure bikes are designed to be ridden on the road as well as off it, and a key part of adventure riding is tyre choice.

    We spoke with Gary about what tyres he would recommend for all riding conditions as well as drawing from his experiences as a seasoned off-road rider. James and Gary also discuss different bikes and what setups they require as well as picking the right tyre for you.

    Thanks to Gary and the folks at Bridgestone we hope this episode of the ABR Garage helps you when it comes to tyres.

    Husqvarna Norden 901 Expedition: the toughest bike launch ever we've ever been on | ABR Garage Episode 15

    Husqvarna Norden 901 Expedition: the toughest bike launch ever we've ever been on | ABR Garage Episode 15

    After returning from the international press launch of the Husqvarna Norden 901 Expedition in South Africa, Alun declared it was the toughest adventure bike launch he'd been on in 12 years of testing motorbikes around the world.

    And Alun wasn't alone in his assessment, with Dakar Rally winner Cyril Depres also impressed with the challenging route Husqvarna provided for the assembled journalists which saw them ride for more than 300 miles over two days of adventuring.

    But how did the Norden 901 Expedition perform on the mix of technical trails, sweeping gravel roads, twisty coastal tarmac, and more? What makes the Expedition worth spending and extra £900 over the price of a standard Norden 901? And could South Africa help Alun get his trail riding mojo back?

    Find out all this and more in the latest episode of the ABR Garage, the podcast from Adventure Bike Rider, in which James debriefs Alun on his return from the Norden launch.


    WHAT IS THE NORDEN 901 EXPEDITION?

    The original Norden 901 hit dealerships here in the UK in 2022, and less than a year later, the manufacturer has released a new model, called the Expedition. It shares the same engine, chassis, wheels, electronics, and more with the standard bike, but has been designed to offer greater comfort and performance over long distances, whether you're riding on or off road.

    Let us know what you think of the new Husqvarna Norden 901 Expedition in the comments section below. And be sure to hit that subscribe button for more content from ABR.

    Let's talk bikes with Ryan F9 ABR Garage Episode 13

    Let's talk bikes with Ryan F9 ABR Garage Episode 13

    FortNine YouTube star Ryan F9, joins regular hosts James and Bryn in this special episode of the ABR Garage live from the Adventure Bike Rider Festival 2022.  

    (Tickets are now on sale for 2023 ABR Festival where there'll be even more adventure biking megastars like Ryan F9 appearing on stage. Get your tickets here: https://www.abrfestival.com/tickets/ ).  

    A crowd of ABR Festival goers packed out the Harley-Davidson Campfire Tent to listen to Ryan F9 and the lads discuss: what's all the fuss about adventure bikes and adventure biking?  

    During the chat we discover why Ryan F9's F 800 GS motorbike gets so much abuse, how riding in Canada and Europe compares, and what did James and Ryan think of the Ducati Desert X when they rode it on the ABR Festival's AX41 Adventure Trail.  

    We also find out how Bryn got so buff, why Ryan uses a flip-phone from the '90s, and what James thinks Suzuki should have called the GSX-S1000 GT to stop people mistaking it for a printer.   

    Ryan F9 also gives a behind the scenes insight into the making of FortNine motorcycle videos, and all three of the lads discuss why adventure bikes like the BMW R 1250 GS, Ducati Multistrada V4, and Honda Africa Twin can't help but inspire a sense of wanderlust.  

    This live episode of the ABR Garage, the podcast from Adventure Bike Rider, was filmed in the magnificent grounds of the Ragley Hall Estate in Warwickshire.
