A good reason to re-subscribe: You'll miss 'em when their gone.



Another good reason: You as a member have the ability to provide ideas to the editorial staff (staff, hehe, Sean has a staff, hehe) with good ideas that might actually make it ot the site.

Double Amen. Don't be afraid to test bikes which aren't so glamorous or haven't been updated in a few years.

I'd need lessons on how to dodge all those leather purses (armadillos) littering the highway.



I've been to OKC. It's going to cost you more than one beer to get me there again! lol

Gee, that's a tough one...since MO is an e-zine, and some of it's content changes on a daily basis, trying to configure MO like a real 3D magazine would be impractical, if not impossible.



Some MC webistes (free ones, like off-road.com) update the page monthly, like a normal mag. This can get boring real quick. And like any "normal" magazine, you read it once, and it goes in the stack. Computer users on the net want fresh, new information daily, be it motorcycles, or worm farming.



What you can try, maybe, is to combine the two formats. Have some columns like "ask the expert", where technical questions are posed, and answered. You can update this page whenever you want. It gives the users something to look forward to, to see if their questions/comments are worthy of the editor.



And give each editor a monthly column, where they can rant about what they like, and perhaps gather a following in the process. Try to cover as much of motorcycling as possible with these columns (i.e. sport, cruiser, track, dirt, humor, etc.)



Keep updating the page with new tests, shootouts, gear, special intrest articles, etc. on a regular basis, just like you're doing.



Put the "old wine into new bottles" as it were (using the biblical demonstrative).



Just my two cents.
