It's an extra magazine - an Adventure Special. Due on the 24th, I believe.

Contains something on the BAM road.
Not sure if Thingy is doing it, though!

I'm sure it'll be to their usual high editorial standard (cough, splutter, fell off my chair, my dog's been abducted by an alien, this weed tastes good I don't have a dog)

It means that if you own a KTM990 your insurance is going up after September.

FFS We really need to hope that MCN keep away from adventure motorcycling, I remember a few years back when 'they' loved the TT, then an unfortunate road racing accident in 2005 involving the deaths of a rider and Marshal forced, at the time a complete U turn, they slagged off race Marshals and even had a reporter sign on as a Marshal so they could have a 'big scoop' in what they considered was poorly run Marshalling.

Though and behold a few years later, Their editor/head knob Marc Potter decided he wanted to take part in a Ducati TT parade lap.

MCN will probably try at first to make adventure biking sound romantic, or even glamorous until there is an 'incident' of either a 'rider down' or kidnapped', then watch how they report it.

MCN along with the SUN newspaper have 2 things in common; both love sensationalism and neither are fit to wipe your @rse.

I am sure the MCN suplement will be full of useful information and not just a vehicle for extra targeted adverts!

Not directly. It's tipping down, you pick up said ready to use fish and chip wrapper, scan through, realise it's full of ****, decide the rain isn't that bad and go use a tank of petrol. You need to MCN proof your seat, buy a sheep skin or something.
