Want to see what a real adventure looks like? http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=269251&highlight=metal+jockey A story like this in installments will keep readers coming back. As stated above I understand the economics of publishing and without advertisers, you die. That said... I'm tired of the impression from the mags that you need a $20K rOBObIKE loaded with garbage cans full of gear to leave the safety of your suburb. Judging by pricing. all the latest accesories are made from unobtanium and pressed cocaine. (full disclosure, I did the robobike thing in the past, I'm over it) Here's another that would make a great serial, http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=831076&highlight=jdowns Perhaps a column by a budget concious guy like John? Good luck Jamie.
