I can get motorcycle reviews anywhere, but MO's are entertaining. I'm afraid that the corporate guys will have a tendency to censor the author's humor, in which case I probably won't resubscribe. The new business model will probably be to appeal to the broadest group of potential subscribers as possible, which will mean flatter, more boring, lowest common denominator, fad chasing articles. If the content changes at all, MO will probably lose alot of the regulars here, and gain alot more new members. It might be good business, but I don't like it.



This is obviously all conjecture, and I really hope that I am proven wrong. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Default Excellent Post

"I can get motorcycle reviews anywhere, but MO's are entertaining" Ditto for me. I agree the other guys are basically a run down of the spec sheet and watered down non-offending riding impressions. Well said jasonlion54

Default Age is a state of mind.

You are as young as you want to be!In my case I am 13 trapped in a 40 year old body. Seriously, I am not the nostalgic sort I like new music, bikes, technology, ideas and gadgets. My mom sent me my old albums and tapes. Never even opened the box. But I hate rap.. Remember you are probably going to live 20 years longer than your father...i.e you have plenty of time to play...
