Default Lets get started.....

I read Classic Bike and Bike from England and Rider, Motorcycle Consumer News and The Horse-Backstreet Choppers from here. I also have a sub for Cycle World I got for x-mas though I usually just flip through it.

Let's see: Subs to Cycle World, Rider, Motorcyclist, The Horse, and of course I get the AMA and HOG publications. Getting pretty tired of the mags these days though. I think The Horse is becoming my favorite.

Soupa' Squidbike (Super Streetbike), Motorcyclist, and Roadracing World.

Barely read any of them anymore, I'm letting all of them lapse (well, MIGHT keep RRW).

The squidboy mag I just got 'cuz my friend with the nosering and funny haircut used to be the Heditor, and it's important to support your friends in all their endeavours. (the pics of barely-covered t!tties din't hurt none, either)

Now, Double-A is back at Motorcyclist, which I've got a sub to for another two years anyway.............. (it was a GIFT!)

I like The Horse, I've been keeping my eye out for a wrecked Hinkley Bonneville, mine isn't stock but the work I've done on it is suspension and performance, not looks. I want to build a rat-bobber for a play bike.

Bike and Motorcyclist although I'm getting sick of both of them.

Default More of the Same

Motorcyclist, Cycle World, American Motorcyclist, Rider, MCN and I think I left one out. Guess how many featured the Multistrada in the past couple of months? There's little good bits in all of them along with portions that never get read.

I've found over the last few years I only need two, Bike and MCN. All the others just seem to be advertising for the manufacturers.

I don't read a single paper magazine. I'm sick of all of them. EVEN Peter Egan's column. But then, I ride stuff like old CB-1s and Nortons and 599s and 1964 Bonnies and Honda CB350s and Guzzi V-65SPs that no one else rides, much less writes about. Well, maybe people write about the Nortons and Triumphs, but eh, there's only so much you can read about them!

Bike, though their format has changed, and I miss the "Really Useful Section". Their reviews don't come off as advertisements, unlike some of their competitors.
