Traction eRag Official Thread

Hi All,

The Traction eRag is coming back.

I used to distribute the issues here but haven't been around in a while. If interested, here are the past issues:

http://issuu.com/scotiadallas/docs

Long story short, I broke my leg badly in a bike crash 18 months ago and then I thought I was leaving the country. Considering both, the eRag just didn't get published. (there is a story about my crash experience in the upcoming magazine)

My leg is feeling marginally better and it turns out we are staying in the country, so I've decided to start publishing the magazine again.

It's still absolutely FREE for the reader, which we are very proud of.

I've added the word "dualsport" to the title - generally a dirty word inside of the off-road community - mostly because a lot of the riding I was doing was a form of dualsporting, just leaning very heavily to the dirt. We ride mostly single and double track. We all have road plated, sub 690 dirtbikes, wear a backpack and go on all day rides skipping on and off of dirt roads. It's a weird blend of riding trail, hydro lines, dirt and cottage roads. Plus, I'm generally interested in anything with two wheels, as long as I'm riding in the dirt. I see a lot of similar riding on this forum.

I'm a dirtbike guy and most dirtbike guys, IMHO, have similar interests and philosophies on life. I'm going to do my best to cater to those interests, whether it's gnarly singletrack trail riding or taking a URAL for a spin (in the dirt). Basically, if you need knobbies and there is dirt involved, it's fair game (except motorcross, where I have no interest). Adventure and fun is what we're after.

IMPORTANT UPDATE

The other thing that you should be aware of is that my email distribution lists disappeared with the long layoff. If you were a subscriber before, you'll have to sign up again. It's as simple as submitting your email address. You can go here to submit it. The site is not perfect, but if I waited for things to be perfect, I'd be waiting a long time. I would rather jump off the cliff and figure out how the parachute thingy works while enjoying the view:

http://tractionerag.ca/

The new issue is coming out in a few days and I think it is quite well done. The writing is very well done.

I will be placing new issues here as they are released, please tell your riding buddies about the magazine - we are doing an awful lot of work putting these magazines together and the reward is having people read them. Please share.

Also, if you like to write, we are looking for anyone who is doing something interesting on dirtbikes. We have a very small soapbox to offer for any interesting opinions, ideas, comments, etc. Please contact me.

Thanks for listening and keep an eye out for the new issue in the next few days...

Dallas

Ontario was just too tempting (read: wife had a last minute job offer in Ontario)!

We're happy to be here, I'm hoping to have some fun with the eRag again...

Sept/Oct. Issue is Ready!



The latest issue is up!

To view it, you'll need to enter your email address here and the link will be emailed directly to you:

SUBSCRIBE TO TRACTION eRAG

There is a AMAZING coupon for 35% off SUOMY off-road helmets included in the link which INCLUDES FREE SHIPPING IN CANADA. Can't get much better than that. SUOMY helmets have been catching on with the off-road crowd as they are soooo light.

Enjoy the issue and let me know if there are any problems!

INSIDE:

Jordan Szoke rides the Corduroy Enduro
Larry Murray breaks down cost of off-road bikes - cost per KM
Dr. Dan (ADV's Country Doc) reflects on the dangers of biking.
Dallas (me!) considers round the world travel - on a sailboat!
Warren Thaxter explains why he rides and off-road motorbike.

MUCH MORE!

Thanks for looking,
Dallas

Thanks!

Thanks for the kind words, thanks for signing up. The only way this publication will make it the second time around is if lots of riders subscribe...

You should receive an email from "subscribe[AT]tractionerag.ca"

Maybe check your junk/spam folder?
