Fair enough critique. I would note that magazines that rely on freelance contributors, as most do, have to trust in the journalistic professionalism of those contributors. Kinda risky, but that's the business. But RoadRUNNER does apply high standards, I can attest from experience, and seems to do what it can to assure that contributors get it right. But ultimately, it's up to the contributor to do his or her job professionally.

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.

Saw some pics of my town in the last issue.
Ewe needs to conact me next time he does one of these rides. I'd love to show him some of the western slopes hidden gem routes.
I have a shamrock tour idea based out of Ridgway, Colorado. Started writing it a few years ago when I lived there. It has streat route with alternate dirt routes to cover the same four leaf idea.
I find your lack of faith disturbing.
