Re: So am I the only one that still reads the mags???
I have a subscription to a magazine. Sport rider maybe, yes confirmed. I'm always looking for them when I go to places with a magazine stand but it seems like it all Harley or heavily modified custom cruiser magazines. Never see many sport bike magazines these days. They are kinda like playboy for me, I like to look at all the pictures, then pick out a couple of the articles and read those too. I also have alot of magazine pages hung up in my garage and basement. One I particularly like is a guy on a repsol CBR in the apex of the turn, it says in big bold letters under it
DON'T JUST SEIZE THE DAY, LEAN INTO IT.
anyway, my kid brought back an order form for candy and baked goods from girl scouts, I like to support her activities, but not a big sweets fan. Being the techy IT guy that I am I immediately found the URL and looked thru the website instead of the paper book. I stumbled upon magazine subscriptions and was happy to find a 2 yr sport rider subscription for $25.00.
I get a small smile on my face every time I pull one out of my mailbox.
The last edition was pretty interesting, focusing on many of the new bikes that are utilizing carbon fiber technology.
The supergirerra (no ideas if that's spelled right I can't even pronounce it) made by Ducati is an all carbon fiber Panigale. Frame, sub frame, rims, and fairings. Interesting stuff. They shaved almost 40 lbs off the bike and added some hp to the motor to make a real bad bitch. I enjoyed thumbing through it like it was 1999 again! Lol
