Adventure Motorcycle Magazine Celebrates 100th Edition
Join ADVMoto Magazine as we celebrate our 100th edition milestone! The September/October 2017 magazine will feature an outstanding array of storytelling and photography by international riders, with special content from Simon and Lisa Thomas (2RidetheWorld.com) and an editorial on women adventure riders. The edition will also cover a unique, award-winning dual-sport bike build as well as some reader inspired thoughts on the Kawasaki KLR 650 community.
From humble beginnings in 1996 as a KLR 650 club newsletter, the magazine has expanded to become the longest-running adventure/ dual-sport motorcycle publication on the market. (Download this issue for free here or by clicking the cover image.)
Although Dual Sport News first took a consistent format in January of 1999, it existed for three years before that as Kawasaki 650 Dual Sport News. In 2010 the current Publisher, Carl Parker, picked up Adventure Motorcycle, rebranded the title as ADVMoto, brought it back to print and became available on over 3,000 newsstands around the world.
"Although the ADV segment may be small for now, we are large in heart and growing rapidly. The upwelling of support and passion in the ADV community is tremendous.There's no doubt more riders will embrace adventure bikes not only for their many practical merits. The community is a diverse spectrum of riders who understands we have one life to live and time is precious. Being accepting and supportive of each other not only makes achieving our goals easier, but enriches us on many personal levels." claims Carl Parker. "It's an honor to work within the ADV world. The readers and sponsors who have supported us for all these years are second to none. We're doing everything we can to ensure the word 'adventure' stays close to our hearts."
Despite the challenges of growing a family owned, independent media company in a niche market, he says "Seeing happy people is worth it. Seeing people dream, and make dreams come true, is worth it."
