    Hey Guys!

    After speaking with the mods, I am excited to announce the birth of Motum Magazine! The mods have given me the "go ahead" to post here and tell you all about this new venture. Motum Magazine will be a mothly subscription that you can download from Apple Newstand, Andriod market, and BlackBerry AppWorld. Its a full ~60 page magazine with New Bike ride reviews, gear reviews, ride reports, and extras for you the rider/reader.

    Here's the exciting part. Since this magazine is about you, I want it to be BY YOU. If you have any ride reports and pics you would like featured, I would love to feature you. If you've ever wanted to be a published author, I also need regular contributors. You could be famous! Some of your ride reports, restore jobs, and farkle instalations are simply amazing. I would love to publish them.

    In the agreement with the mods, I have to disclose that this magazine is in NO WAY affliated with the forum. And I will never PM you asking for your submissions, or to use your content. Its up to you, if you want to be featured.

    I am really excited to share our sport, our way of life with the masses. I need your help and support guys, the better our content is, the more people will download it. I can't think of a better way to share what we love with others. We've all tried to share a story about a ride with a non rider, and they just don't get it. You can't exactly go tell them to read the post you made, but now you can tell them to read the magazine you were featured in!

    Here's a working copy of our first month's cover.

    For those who missed it the first time, and just to be clear, this is no way affiliated, supported or sponsored by ADVrider.com

    :thumb Exactly, I'm just a rider like the rest of us. The magazine has nothing to do with this forum. And to answer the other question, our first issue will go out in January 2012.

    I still need writers, and advertisers. If you have a recent (within the last 2 years) trip report, send it my way, or PM me with permission to copy it, and it will be published! 1000s of people will see your work. :D

    What is the website address for the magazine other than the facebook link, and is there going to be a pdf version of it available also?

    Would def like to check it out. Will it be "digital" (to keep your costs down) ? Would love to read it on Android tablet.

    So just to be clear about all this, the ADVrider forum and magazine are affiliated with each other and are both run by the same people, right?

    Just FB right now, and when the "like" count gets high enough we get our custom URL. I am also looking at options for hosting and delivery of the PDF for non tablet download too :D

    Yep, no print! I got the idea last time I was in the doctor's office... magazines all around, and everyone was busy reading their phones!

    Just got the phone call from Triumph N. America. We will be the first magazine in the US to demo the new Tiger Adventure 1200 when it hits American soil!
