Second post, same dude. I liked the review, but I have to recommend some improved editing. If you want to be a professional magazine, you need to sound like one.



See, e.g., "Maura Thompson, of the Motor Clothes division of Harley-Davidson was nice enough to offer Jen and I some gear to wear for the trip, and of course, we accepted graciously;" "It fits good and has plenty of padding and comfort."



Yikes! Do you want to hire me? I'll edit for money and even test ride the bikes for free!

Motor clothes? Road gear? give me a break. Made in China, over priced, more like poser gear. I understand that "motor clothes" account for 25% of H-D's sales. I guess it's great if your a stockholder. I would'nt be caught dead in any of it. Great marketing though. Each to thier own I guess. I think I'll go for a ride now. Adios

Default We want more of Jen

Just quietly:

Why haven't we seen more of Jen (if she's a MO-Staffer)? You're not withholding other goodies like that, are you?

Remember: Nice girls go with bad motorcycles...

Default Queens English

Ha



This is one of the best reviews IÂ’ve read on motorcycle clothing. LetÂ’s face it, itÂ’s not easy to review something so simple yet as complex as motorcycle accessories.



As to grammar errors.



If I wanted the Queens English, I would subscribe to a British magazine.

How come Harley riders don't have to wear full face helmets like the rest of us?

Great review. Jen looks great in the stuff. Have to admit Harley has a way with black leather. Good thing I am stockholder huh. Hmmm I need a new jacket......

They need to dress up in their tough-guy costume so nobody will think they're a poseur.

Wouldn't it be great if there were no more poseurs?



No more lawyers riding Heritage Springers and sporting fake tattoos and long haired wigs.



And no more dweebs cruising on sportbikes down the boulevard in power ranger suits.
