Taking the plunge and investing in your own motorbike would be a major milestone if you are a motorcycling enthusiast. It represents a great opportunity to experience amazing freedom, zip across the country with the wind in your hair, and invest in a method of transport that may “tie you down” to a lesser extent financially than a larger car or van. The world of motorcycles is fast-paced and ever-changing, and every year sees the unveiling of a host of new models, designs, and technology. But what are some of the hottest bikes to watch in 2023? We took a closer look; get ready for some amazing ..read more

We’re in such a hurry most of the time…

“We’re in such a hurry most of the time we never get much chance to talk. The result is a kind of endless day-to-day shallowness, a monotony that leaves a person wondering years later where all the time went and sorry that it’s all gone. ” ― Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values ..read more

Scottish Route: Bridge of Allan, Fort William, Aberfeldy Loop
Beginner Biker Adventures
by Arthur
9M ago
There are many great roads up into the Scottish Highlands, but planning a manageable loop from the Central Belt that fits into a day is harder than you first think. The landscape and mountains force you to follow a limited set of main arterial roads that are full of slow tourists and camper vans. Many quiet side roads I’d normally try to opt for simply come to a dead end up long valleys. As such, you’re forced into either shorter loops through some of the low lands, or very long loops North around huge mountain ranges. This route is a loop North from Bridge of Allan to Fort William and back vi ..read more

The Perfect Father’s Day Gift for a Biker Dad

What does every biker Dad want on Father’s Day? Answer: Decent weather and a pass to head out on their motorbike for the day. The first you can’t really guarantee delivery of, the second is doable and might not even cost a penny. But for those days when the weather is a bit naff and your biker Dad is needed at home to watch the kids, a subscription to RiDE magazine will undoubtedly be appreciated. RiDE magazine is currently running a special offer of 6 mags for £14.99, and £4.30/month recurring thereafter (offer ends June 19th). Great value, as the mag is over a fiver on the high street and a ..read more

Here’s a short little motorcycle ride-out route for you. Perfect for when you’ve just got a couple of hours to kill or an evening ride once the nights get shorter. We start off from the Wallace Monument in Stirling, a lovely place for a walk and a great view out over Stirling and Bridge of Allan all the way out Ben Lomond and Ben Vorlich near Lochearnhead. There’s a decent cafe here, so you can get your espresso shots in before you set off! The route then takes in a single-track route over the Hillfoots behind the Logie Kirk church and through the hamlet of Sheriefmuir. There are a couple of ..read more

It was that time of year again for the Scottish Motorcycle Show, a yearly event that is eagerly awaited by motorcycle enthusiasts from all over Scotland and beyond. The show is a celebration of all things two-wheeled and motorized, bringing together manufacturers, dealers, and riders from across the country.

FZ6 Charging System Failure, Rectifier & Stator Checks

There are few things more heart-sinking than being sat on your motorbike miles from home to find it no longer starts up. At first, you’re in denial and keep jabbing at the starter button, but it just generates more clicks as the starter motor refuses to kick in. You then have to consign yourself to the fact, you’re not going anywhere in a hurry. The fatal selfie stop whence we discovered our dead battery… This happened to me a few weeks ago on a cold ride up to Dunkeld. It was one of those beautiful winter days where it was bright and sunny, but cold with frost and snow surrounding the main ro ..read more

There is nothing quite like the experience of riding a motorcycle in the open air. With the pleasantly warm weather and clear roads these days, we can’t blame you if you suddenly consider buying a motorcycle. But what is the best motorcycle to buy, I hear you ask.

Happy Christmas! Take care, it’s been a tough 2022
Beginner Biker Adventures

Happy Christmas! Take it easy, folks, we’re still going through tough times, and the Christmas spirit is in short supply (budget cuts, austerity etc). So stress not on all the whirlwind of consumerism and obligated gifting. This year, the well-being of family and friends is the greatest priority. A simple catch-up and blether over a wee drink is worth more than some hurriedly purchased tat online. We’ve all had greater struggles recently, be it physical or mental health, finances or work stresses. Many are still dealing with the fallout from Covid, rocketing inflation has hit some more than ot ..read more

Autumn Update

Things have been a bit quiet here at Beginner Biker Adventures, lots of non-biking things going on that haven’t left me with much time, to be honest. Sometimes it is not all fun on the bikes. This blog is only a hobby and far from a full-time venture. So here is a quick catchup, just to fill you in on the random other stuff I’ve been up to recently. DIY Projects I’ve had a few DIY house projects on the go. Firstly, rolling out an extra layer of loft insulation to keep things toasty at home. Surprisingly for quite a new build (mid-2000s), there was only a minimal 160mm layer of insulation in th ..read more
