Again, welcome.



Your move from Motorcyclist to MO is cause to let the print subscription expire, and to kick in the cash for the MO subscription.

YES!!! I new there was a reason subscribed to Motorcycle.com last week. I always first turned to the back pages of Motorcyclist to view Bitter Little Man (for the brief time it was there) Welcome John. I will help spread the word as to where you are.

welcome aboard Burns

I certainly hope to see a lot of your writing in the future. After reading one of your last bitter little man pieces, I couldn't help but feel that you were really holding back on what you really wanted to say. hopefully the new powers that be will be enlightened enough to give you the freedom to say what you want, the way you want it said. best of luck to you, and please STAY AS BITTER AS YOU WANT!!!!!

Just like Blackburd, I knew subscribing earlier this week would leave me pleased. Well, it's all worth it now. I mean, MO, you guys are great, but John is loved for his writing like "If that's your hangup, you probably should consult a proctologist or shrink. How much time you spending in there anyway, bud? Give somebody else a chance...." Great writing. I will glady take this over CYCLEWORLD's bland flavor and now Motorcyclist doesn't appeal to me anymore after this seperation. I believe you guys will get more subscripstions if you advertised to the losers that haven't signed up yet that you have John Burns. Hope you get what you need Burnsee. Now how about that Scooter scramble shootout?

Wow... I might have to subscribe - just to get

to see pictures of the Jagrolet, if nothing else...



Of course, I want more. Does this mean that

motorcycle reviews here will have a "Details,

details" section? Real world stuff?



It'd be kind of nice if bike reviews exposed

some of the day to day PITA factors involved

with a given bike...



How many ZR7 reviews mentioned that the

tank had to be partially unbolted to access

the battery, and that it's a real pain to do?

"It also explains why the content of MO has been a slightly watery soup in the past--not enough manpower. "



agreed, glad to hear someone from the other side say it. now all you need to do is hire a decent photographer or photo-editor... and get your news out quicker... or at least link to the people that do more frequently.



i spend plenty of time on the can... mostly because of the moto-magazines though, not ass problems. you guys need a favorite ride/road archive based on user submissions. people might get together... oh no!

Well John I just wanted to say welcome, and to let you know that us Buell riders won't hold your past against you (well actually some of the folks are still trying to tar and feather ya for past comments). Anyway good luck here and hopefully you won't be popped onto the mirror here anytime soon.

Welcome!



Was your sudden release from Motocyclist due to offending said readership with the "Bitter" articles?



No matter!



It is great for you to be with motorcycle.com.



Congratulations.
