This is what I'm getting sick of. Half the pages are about wheelies, stoppies, triple digit speeds, pretty much everything that will land a hefty ticket. Talk about being irresponsible and blatant about it.
I also notice the brevity of the articles. Go back and read reviews from cycle magazines in the 70s, they were complete reviews, not 2 page overviews with thumbs up or down and skimpy editorial side bar comments.
I was really disappointed in CycleWorld's recent ADV bike comparison article, it hardly made 3 pages, barely 1 page per bike and no individual editorial comments, it was like it was written in an afternoon over coffee.
I don't know if it's a matter of budget or what, but it's becoming a joke to me. I recently received a promo offer from Motorcyclist who'd I written off a few years ago. They offered the year's subscription for $7 and that's probably what it's worth. I decided to give it a shot for that price.
