Not a bad review (you have to shift to the right to get the survival article):

Excellent read John.. There's a lot of wisdom in that article. Thanks for flagging it for us.

Maybe only Canadians can see for free......

Unless it is the operating system rather than the browser.

As a subscriber, I cannot test that hypothesis.

But, you subscribe (or used to).

I never subscribed. Or at least if I did the Alzheimers is blurring it out for me.

John: I let my subscription lapse about 4 years ago. Hopefully, they've noticed by now. Certainly haven't been receiving the magazine.

So technical difficulties aside...



...can someone copy/cut/paste the gist of it before this discussion makes it to page two? :D

Here goes; you will have to enlarge the image with your browser.

I might as well plug the magazine. It isn't perfect because they need demo bikes to review, but they do downgrade bikes that they review. They bitched about the clunky transmission in the CB500X. I think that it is the only bike magazine commonly sold here that has no ads. So, it is expensive. Darn you brent! I'm still buying it 9 years later.

It appears that wheezeburnt/brent is mum on the magazine and his suggestion that I try it.

That's OK.

But things sure have been quiet over here.

Yep aside from the odd spammer its been pretty quiet. I guess bike season is over for a lot of us. My wife and I had a good 3 day run around southern California a couple of weeks ago on a rented GS which was a lot of fun.
I have bookmarked MCN BTW . Its a very good publication.

As long as we're plugging online mags, here's a Canadian one that would be of general interest. These guys seem to be right up to date on new models etc. I think you might find it worthwhile.

John:
Yeah, sorry. Been in and out a lot lately. Funny, I just passed on my six or seven years of MCN to a riding buddy, who read them all cover to cover during a motorcycle injury convalescence, and then passed them on to another rider.
Jim: Think I'll take a look at that magazine (CMG).
It HAS been ridiculously quiet here lately. Sometimes it seems like active membership is somewhere in the single digits.
