For once, VFR, I agree with you. I know a site that does this and it's wonderful... It may consume more bandwidth and cause less hits on the site so MO might not go for it.

This is sooooo cool. Write/ride on, good scribe, the Truth awaits. And if anyone dares edit his stuff....



(Wish I was this popular.)



Congratulations to everyone involved.

Interesting! After MO went subscription I stopped dropping by. I also never subscribed to Motorcyclist although I would buy it every now and then. I am subscribed to Cycle World(mainly for their great columns) and Sport Rider. I always liked the Burns pieces in the mag though so, yes, the addition of Burns has gotten me to fork out the 12 bucks for my very first paid online subscription to anything. Will this place be around in a year? Big question. Is critical mass smoldering yet? Hope so. The addition of a genuine MOTORCYLE CELEBRITY has got to be a huge help. Let's hope than Boehm doesn't come back for Burns begging like some jabba the hut with a conscience. Anyway...a big welcome and make me glad I paid the money!

Burnsie at MO. No doubt, the best thing that's ever happened to online motorcycle sites! And MO has the exclusive rights. Great stuff, though JB on a daily basis, simply boggles the mind. I have said several times that the two best road tests ever written were John's tests on the '96 & '98 Gixxer 750's. No lap times, no comparos. Simply the best prose that truly described these incredible hooligans to a tee. With John on staff, MO has truly raised the ante. Congrats and welcome aboard! Cheers, Jack

John,



You have been my all time favorite motorcycle journalist since your "off the bikey" experience in 1996. I subscribed a while back because MO has served me well for the entire seven years I've been riding. It looks like it can only get better.



Brent, thanks for hanging in there when you could have sold out!

Howzabout bringing Sioban Burns on board,also?



Welcome aboard,JB. The guys over at SACBORG think you're the....bomb.



Do you still get to keep the ZX-9R long term test bike?

Allow me to also congratulate and thank you for joining the MO team. If I hadn't already subscribed, I would do so this instant!
