I'm the same way.

Plus if I'm sitting in a chair on the beach, sand and iPhones/laptops don't play well together.

"Cycle World sent me a subscription renewal offer. I still have about a year left on the 24 month subscription.."

I'm sorry.


"That's about $0.75 per issue."

That is $0.75 too much. Honda brochures are free. That's all that rag has become. I suppose you can always keep old issues in the head in case you run low on TP.

You're just mad because they stopped the Chicago translation issues.

That's something you and I can agree on. I still like to get magazines and read them on the porch or in a hammock with a nice cold one or two. Problem is though, I don't get bike magazines any more. Popular Science, Car and Driver, couple others. Frequent visits to the County Library (not County Jail Library whatever you people might think) for books and mags. I only seem to like the Brit bike mags and don't feel like spending that much moola. American bike mags seem to be too much of cheerleaders for the advertisers. How many titmes did the VFR win CW Bike of the Year? LOL! Count the ad pages.

The only magazines I read are the old crusty ones in a decaying cardboard box out in the garage.

I've almost memorized the Cycle magazine test on a CB350 from 1971. "Once underway the feeling of blah blah blah..." That Ziff Davis could sure write...

If you wipe your behind with it, that is all the translation needed.

Now I know why you're so crabby all the time. Get some Charmin. Your butt won't hurt so much.

BTW: all the letters to the Editor ***** about it being a Ducati promotion mag.

Geez. It's worth that to read Kevin Cameron's column alone!
