I totally agree! BIKE mag rules! I keep old ones in my head, great to read while taking a dump. HAHA
US motorcycle mags for the most part suck. UK mags are well worth the 10.00 at Barnes and Noble.

Why don't you read the post. Its about Motorcyclist going downhill and screwing up really simple stuff. Its not about the freak-show drummer.

Bitter much? You point to a typo in a one-page article to illustrate that an entire magazine is going downhill? Please.

Some of the other posters here have made intelligent comments illustrating how they feel the magazine has become toilet paper-worthy, you simply pointed to a typo. Oh Jeebus!! Not a typo!!

Motorcyclist isn't my favorite motorcycle magazine either, but to condemn it for a typo and then rip someone for their comment seems a bit unbalanced. Please take a deep breath. Or is there some other reason you so passionately despise Motorcyclist?

Now that I've read the article carefully, I realized they meant to say a 1996 R1100GS since he talks about riding it during the tour for Test for Echo in '96-'97.

Back in the 90's, I loved that mag. But when the British company bought it, that was the end for me. Still subscribed to Cycle World, but that is getting kinda lame now, though I will say that that the lack of interesting new models has alot to do with that. And I guess I still have not got over the way they dumped Dave Edwards.

ya, I still like it OK but it seems like Cat is always on some kind of "look at me" trip... always mentioning his (old) racing history, apparent friendships with important people, & name dropping. As far as the mag goes... better than most I guess, but biased to sport bikes, too many Hardlys & not enough adventure riding.... almost never a dual sport article.

No I don't get Motorcyclist mag......and No I don't know what month it came from but a friend of mine sent me a Catterson essay titled "High Adventure". I thought it was pretty good.I'm sure others had/have much different opinions....
I'll see if I can find a link......

+1, I gave up on Motorcyclist years ago.

I think the error is the year, not the model. I read Neil's book and he had a 90's R1100RS he replaced with a GS. I think he went on to own a R1150GS and a R1200GS after the book. It's a shame when books and magazines don't catch such obvious errors. I don't know how many books I've read that have a gunman or cop easing off the safety on a revolver!
