RiDE (UK) - - Welcome - SI­MON WEIR EDI­TOR

THE WORLD OF motorcycling has changed a lot in the last ten years. Sports­bikes sell­ing less, ad­ven­ture bikes sell­ing more… and sports tourers have changed too. Some are more up­right, oth­ers more ex­posed and all of them — like sports­bikes and ad­ven­ture bikes — make a lot more power. For­tu­nately, what hasn’t changed is how great it is to ride in York­shire. This month, Martin and the test team headed to the Dales with three great sports tourers. From pop­u­lar bik­ing routes to back lanes, they found bril­liant roads high­light­ing the strengths – and the weak­nesses – of their bikes. Read their story on p14.

Of course, what I took from it is that it doesn’t mat­ter what bike you’re on or where you are. What counts is tak­ing the time to get off the usual routes and find fresh roads. En­joy your ride.
