    Maybe not the right forum, but I didn't want to bury it in Jo Mama. The webpage for Minnesota Motorcycle Monthly is gone. Anybody know anything about these folks? Have they folded? I've enjoyed reading their stuff for several years now.

    They're still going. You can usually get the paper at various motorcycle dealerships around the twin cities, but I have no idea if they distribute beyond that - I suspect not. I have no idea what's up with their website.

    Metallic Waste writes for them, he may know what's up.

    Used to be able to subscribe and get it mailed to you for the cost of shipping. That might be hard to organize if the website is down. If you want I can walk down to Bob's Java Hut and mail you a copy. :lol3

    Anyway, there are a few inmates who write or contribute to MMM, I trust one of them will pop up. :thumb

    I expect they're busy with road tests and in depth articles and what not. :D

    The web site is being overhauled right now. Hope to have it back up and running soon. But, yeah--we're still here. New issue hit the stands last week. We are distributed as far as Watertown, SD. Maybe even farther than that. :dunno

    Subscriptions are still available.

    Will the new website be more absorbant? The oil never really soaks in like it does with the paper version.
