Yamaha XSR700

It really is no secret that I felt like Youngy was punishing me (what for I don’t know), when he allocated rides for last issues LAMs Adventure test, but it does seem that I am back in favour with our most revered Deputy & Road Test Editor because when we suited up for this

Harley-Davidson CVO Pro Street Breakout

When it comes to breaking out of the big house, there could be fewer bigger incentives to twine a long length of rope from discarded dental floss and scale a barbwire-topped prison wall than to have a Harley-Davidson CVO Pro Street Breakout waiting for you on the outside as your

Suzuki DR-650 Bike Five LAMS ADVENTURE SPECIAL

Although it may seem premature to get on a 650cc bike at the start of your off-roading life, the big DR has attributes which would make it an excellent first adventure bike. It has a very modest power output for its size, but enough grunt to make it worth the weight penalty compa

Yamaha WR250R- BIKE SIX LAMS ADVENTURE SPECIAL

Youngy is a bit of a freak. Point him at a hill, no matter how steep (to me it looks like a sheer vertical, but in reality it must be all of 30º), and up he goes. What’s more, he flies up it like he’s riding a proper 450 enduro, even though he’s on the donkey DR650. Bugger

Honda’s CB500X - BIKE FOUR LAMS ADVENTURE SPECIAL

When we drew straws for bikes before our LAMS adventure, I was quietly confident that I’d scored the pick of the pack with Honda’s CB500X. Its comfortable upright riding position, long-legged stance and trademark reliability make it ideal for tackling a long journey over mixe

Triumph Street Triple 660- BIKE THREE LAMS ADVENTURE SPECIAL

A road warrior, that’s what I was, according to Youngy. As I studied the map I contemplated what looked like a pleasant three-and-a-bit-hour run from Warburton to Kevington, although a couple of sections seemed to ‘bulge’. I zoomed in, and that’s when I saw them – the t

Suzuki Boulevard S40- PART TWO LAMS ADVENTURE SPECIAL

I knew the LAMS adventure ride was coming up, but it had been so hectic at Gassit HQ I hadn’t been able to give it much thought. The day before the ride it dawned on me that I still didn’t know what bike I would be riding. And when I pulled up at the office, I found out why Y

A classic adventure on the Royal Enfield Battle Green- part one LAMS adventure special

When I was greeted by the Royal Enfield Classic at the start line of our LAMS multi-bike adventure ride, I knew some of my companions had already prejudged the air-cooled, 499cc single-seater, possibly even taking pity on me. I knew otherwise, and so it proved. Painted in Battle
