honda crf1000 l africa twin

WE HAD AN Africa Twin here at AMM for a while, but I didn’t get a chance to take a close look at it. That’s the first thing I did, then, when tour guide Peter from Edelweiss Bike Travel allocated the bike to me for the Canary Islands ride. I would be spending five days on it, and I wanted to get a good look at it first. My immediate thought was what it often is these days when I look at a new bike. How can they do it for the money? The Africa Twin lacks some of the electronics that adorn most of its competitors, but it has ABS (although only the rear can be switched off), which is important to me, and traction control which isn’t, really. I’m…

the brushgrove hotel

Short and simple: the only thing I can fault in this place is the lack of breakfast in a town with no other option.Apart from that, from the wonderful hosts to the welcoming locals, from the afternoon-sun drenched veranda to the pontoon on the river, from the comfortable rooms to the free swagging out back, this is what country pubs should try to be. Don’t make it a detour, make it your destination! Very high 4 helmets, 130 on our value scale and 8/10 for unique character. The Brushgrove Hotel, Brushgrove, Woodford Island T: 02 6647 6201…

winging it

“RIDERS HELPING Riders” is what M.A.R.I (Motorcycle Accident Rehabilitation Initiative) is all about. Over the past 10 years or so, the M.A.R.I initiative has helped many riders and their families from Townsville in far North Queensland to Melbourne in the South, as well as other locations in Australia, on a fairly regular basis. For those that have not heard of us before, it all started at St Vincents Hospital , Darlinghurst Sydney in 2007. A trained team of volunteers now called “Support Services” was grouped together and certified, to assist riders in need and riders who had been admitted to hospital. Since then the initiative has developed into what we have today. Now, we have developed another arm - M.A.R.I the Dr Wings Bike Force Volunteers. This team, guided by the M.A.R.I Team,…

cooma ‘n’ get dirty

AS THIS IS OUR annual adventure issue we decided to get you dirty with this nice loop out of Cooma. The Snowy Mountains area is littered with dirty adventures so you could make this a few days based in the area of Cooma and see many different roads. This being just one particular loop. COOMA Cooma is the largest town in the Snowy Mountain region and consequently is seen as the gateway to the Snowy Mountains ski fields, the Snowy Mountains Hydro Electricity Scheme and the Kosciuszko National Park. In recent times tourism and the snowfields have ensured that it is more than just a rural service centre, which it was starting to head towards. It is the base for exploring the entire area and a prosperous tourist town. Central to the…
