I like the Brits magazines a little better. So my vote is for either TWO or RIDE.

I read them all, my favorite is which ever one is praising the Hayabusa at the time




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

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.

Superbike is good, so is Performance Bikes. Brit rags are good.

RoadRacingWorld, and now Road Racer X. Street bike mags seem all pretty much the same to me, so I just grab which ever one has the bike I want to know about in it. If you look at Motorcyclist, Cycle World, and Sportrider or whatever the other one is. They are all pretty much the same, usually even comparing the same bikes in the same month.

I like Motorcycle Consumer News. I think it's the most unbiased as far as reviews go, and no advertising. It's got TONS of great information from trip planning to bike maintainence, to gear reviews, and riding techniques. But if you like color pictures and stuff then its not for you. I also get Cycle World, and Motor Cyclist. If I buy one at the stands i just go by whichever one has the info or review that i want at that time.

I haven't renewed my subs(I was getting all 3) I've started just picking them up at the grocery store when there is an article I want (or read it at the store if it is just one ) I don't see too many articles I need and certainly not enough to justify buying them.

I believe all 3 now have online sites so it may not be necessary to buy any mags.

My wife thinks we're a bunch of Top Gun wannabes with our call signs, so for future reference, I'm Roger

Actually i subscribe to Motorcyclist cause they have pretty good articles and the tech tips in back is awesome. Just this months were how to remove the tail section and install an undertail. Pretty good mag.

If it has a motorcyle on the cover, I'm likely to take a look. Even if the magazine is Ladies Home Journal.
