The first issue of Mitch Boehm's new magazine Moto Retro Illustrated is out and shipping. If you're into old bikes, classic racers and that scene Boehm's work will be appreciated.

This issue includes a story on the legendary early 1980s Kawasaki team and their KZ1000-based Superbikes. A team and era that spawned, literally, ten thousand bench racing stories. In this issue Lawson confesses that he was offered a million dollars for his KZ1000 ELR and is still, shockingly, mad at the AMA over the 1980 championship debacle.

If the previous incarnation, Motorcyclist Retro, was any indication, it should be a great publication.

If it lasts past the 3rd issue. Boem was trying to get all the big names in motojournalism to joinn up, Rick Sieman, Paul Clipper, Ed Herfelder, etc. but since the subscription is so damn expensive, everyone doubts it'll get past the 3rd pressing.

Rotsa ruck Mitch.

I might order it just to have a look. I really enjoy Classic Bike; probably more than CW and MC. And I burn though those in 2 - 3 "sittings," leaving me with the conditioner bottle label to read the rest of the month.

$40/year.

Here's another one. Only $12:

Retro Moto Magazine

Cheap enough to give it a try. I also signed up for Boehm's.

I subscibe to Motorcycle Classics, and it's OK, but they do not like dirt bikes.

Not many will say they are pro-dirt bike these days.
