well, I've never found a "buyout" to be positive.

the last time it happened

(and frankly I was quite disappointed)

was when TechTv was taken over by G4 gaming channel.

99% of the programming was trashed.

workers were laid off.

the studio was closed. (moved from San Fran to L.A.)

the focus became 'gaming' not tech.

viewer target audience became 13 to 18yr old from 18 to 35



oh well, I hope pure motorcycling is the focus. and minumal changes to enhance the site and promote motorcycling.

To VerticalScope:



MO is my favourite motorcycle magazine, bar none. Please don't mess with the writing at all. If you do half of the subscriber base will instantly vaporize in disgust.



To MO:



Hope you're flying first class now! And that they didn't touch the staff vomitorium.



P.S. I live in Toronto. Need any guest writers?
