They've been giving the ADV niche darned good play.

Let me add my 2cents, please . . . . .

It is easy to pick nits with anything, especially if you've never tried to do anything remotely similar . . . . . .

The thing that sets your magazine apart isn't the writing, the graphics, the photography, the printing, the product test . . . . it's the fact that you pay as much or more attention to the riding as you do the hardware . . . .

While I LIKE to read of new bikes and products, I purchase products several times a year, a bike perhaps once a decade, but I ride every day.

Thanks for paying attention to riders and riding.

Well again, that comes from being riders too, and we want to encourage people to get out there and see the country and the world from their motorcycles. Once you get the moto traveling bug, you're hooked! Although we do like to think that our writing and photography sets us apart too!

Graduation ... Mother's Day ... Father's Day ... What to give?

The June issue of RoadRUNNER chronicling the inaugural run of the COBDR with Touratech-USA ...

Sterling Noren's knee-slapping video of that epic ride ...

and the Butler map of the COBDR ...

Your graduation, Mother's Day and Father's Day gift-giving problem is solved!

Subscribed for two digital years. Got a copy of the June issue from Simon and Lisa when I went to hear them locally. Great magazine!

Well I'll offer up a dissenting vote and just dropped my subscription after a few years. I found the writing to be very inconsistent. For instance, last year their was a Shamrock article for my area and roads I know very well. The write up about the routes was horrendous and most times described events and places not even close to the order that they were riding. Another example was an article with a picture of the rider crossing a bridge, except you could see the kick stand down and supported so that the bike was vertical. Last is that the bike reviews sound like they came from the marketing literature. It's a travel magazine, give a review on what it's like to travel on the bike, carry stuff, and live with it for a few days on the road. Just my 2 cents.

I love this mag. The wife got it for me as a gift 5 or 6 years ago and it's my favorite (I've got them all saved for future reference). I subscribe to a few others but this one is always first class, I think Christa and the gang do a great job.
