We're busy putting the finishing touches to the latest issue Lincolnshire Biker, your FREE bi-annual magazine made by bikers for bikers. This issue features some real heavyweights. Bikes like Honda’s Africa Twin, Ducati’s Multistrada and Kawasaki’s ZX-10R show just how good today’s machinery is. We’ve never had it so good, and whether you want to cross a continent in supreme comfort, enjoy a blast along your favourite B-road or chase your personal best at Cadwell, these bikes show that there’s a bike with your name on it, regardless of your experience or ability. Research shows that the average annual mileage for a British biker is just 3500 miles, with many riders struggling to even leave this great county of ours. That’s a real shame, and to this end we are throwing our weight behind MCN’s #ride5000miles initiative, a scheme aimed at encouraging riders to get out and enjoy their bikes. More time in the saddle means you’ll be more confident in your ability, and you’ll feel more comfortable on the bike too. It’s win, win. And if you feel like your skills are lacking, or you need a refresher, then why not sign up for our Performance Plus road riding day at Cadwell Park? We guarantee you’ll leave a more capable rider. This issue also sees us focus on kit, especially leathers. We caught up with Ducati’s Andrea Dovizioso at Barcelona, and we’ve also teamed up with our own resident kit expert Julian Button again – this time he’s sharing his knowledge on one-piece suits. Our riding expert Ade Thomas also looks at wet weather riding and the skills you’ll need to keep it shiny side up. We hope you enjoy the issue. See you on the road.
