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

Triumph Street Triple 660- BIKE THREE LAMS ADVENTURE SPECIAL

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

Ducati Diavel

It’s difficult to put a finger on just who Ducati’s Diavel muscle cruiser is aimed at. Since its release in 2011 I have watched the number of Diavels on our roads steadily grow, and made note of the wide variety of riders enjoying the booming beastie. I have spied old and you
