Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

None of the American motorcycle mags hold a candle to any of the Brit mags mentioned in this thread. Content aside, just the look and feel of their magazines is better than any of the American moto mags whether they are about, sportbikes, cruisers, dirtbikes, etc.

Now add the content and there is no contest. Brit mags have it over American mags hands down. Don't get me wrong, I dig Sport Rider (because I get it fo flee ) but it is chock full of ads and it seems like every product or bike review is an infomercial.

Here is the place to subscribe if you like the Brit magazines:

Still $$$$, but much cheaper than the magazine rack.
