We have had mixed reports and ‘leaks’ coming out of India for some time now and it seems to be a slower release than Honda’s Africa Twin. Everything has been based on guesswork and ‘sources’ reporting. Along with this we have the estimate from looking at the engine and the bike layout.

Omo Alokwe, a business change analyst from Uxbridge, will leave his partner and friends behind at the end of November as he and his KTM 1050 ADVENTURE embark on an epic tour across 12 countries and two continents to raise £20,000 for MSF.

The journey will take him from Land’s End, the most westerly point in Great Britain, to the Nigerian port city of Lagos, stopping off at the charity’s projects along the way and finding out more about their work in tackling Ebola in West Africa last year. With three ferry crossings and temperatures ranging from -2°C to 49°C, Omo will pass through the snow-capped Pyrenees, the Sahara desert and tropical rain-forests en route to his final destination of Lagos, the second fastest-growing city in Africa.

Adventure Riding - The word that has come to mean many things to many people and perhaps runs the risk of meaning nothing at all anymore.

Words by - AJ

Adventure does not mean having a horrible time.

Definition

I think I have been “Adventure” riding in my mind ever since I first climbed on a bike. It seems to me that since it became in vogue to ride an “Adventure Bike” which we are told by the mainstream publications, TV Programmes and motorcycle manufacturers has to be a certain style that maybe we have lost sight of the definition of the word “Adventure” According to the people at Oxford they class the noun as "An unusual and exciting or daring experience” that surely depends on the individual having the adventure…. and I am sure most will agree that you can have this adventure on any type of bike that you happen to be riding at the time. We have seen many people riding in all sorts of places on literally every type of bike. From Sjaak Lucassen on his R1 to Gareth Jones on his ’51 Hard tail Panhead HD to 1001+ people on giant “purpose built” GS/KTM/Yamaha bikes. Its doesn’t matter so long as you can ride it safely and can afford it.
