Motorcycle gear you’ll find at this year’s ABR Festival

1. Adventure Motorcycle Clothing

Whether you’re planning on a backcountry expedition in a far-flung land or a month-long tour of Europe, it’s crucial to have the right motorcycle clothing.

At the ABR Festival, there’ll be a huge range of helmets, jackets, trousers, and boots from manufacturers such as Mosko Moto, Klim, and Alpinestars as well as stands from distributors such as Adventure Bike Shop and Mega Motorcycle Store.

You’ll be able to try the bike gear you’ve got your eye on and find the perfect fit.

2. Luggage

Whether you prefer soft luggage or hard luggage, there’ll be a massive selection of panniers, top boxes, and soft bags to select from to find the perfect bike luggage.

You’ll be able to compare, test and grab a great price from luggage manufacturers such as Touratech, Kriega, and Mosko Moto, and find the motorbike luggage that suits your needs.

3. Tyres

Choosing the right bike tyres is critical, as for the vast majority of the time while riding they’re your only point of contact with the road.

So, get the ‘best at the ABR Fest’ with the highest quality road, off-road and dual (50/50) tyres for adventure and touring bikes with brands such as Bridgestone and Metzeler on hand to help you choose the perfect pair.

4. Parts

If you’re spending a lot of time on your bike, it’s worth getting the most out of it.

Upgrades to components such as suspension and brakes, and accessories like crash bars and skid plates allow you to take your bike to the very ends of the Earth, as well as improving your riding experience dramatically.

Suppliers such as Ohlins and Rugged Roads will be able to advise you on the perfect upgrades to whatever bike you have, and you’ll be able to draw upon the wisdom of seasoned veterans and professionals for tips on upgrading your motorbike.

5. Accessories

There’s always room for more accessories to improve your riding experience and make life on the road just that little bit easier.

For finding your way across Europe, why not take a look at SatNavs like a Garmin zumo, and if you’re riding through rain and fog, try a Visin heated visor.

Keep on top of your bike maintenance with a Scottoiler automatic chain lubricator and pick up a In&motion airbag to protect yourself if the worst happens.

There’ll be thousands of motorbike accessories to discover, so if you’ve ever thought of something that could make your ride better, chances are you’ll find it at the ABR Festival 2023.
