Outrider Journal

I just received my inaugural issue of Outrider Journal, a magazine dedicated to dual-sport riding and all that goes with it. If you are unfamiliar with the publication, checkout http://www.outriderjournal.com/. I'm continuing to read through the magazine but after quickly thumbing to the last page in the "My Ride" section, the featured bike is a 2008 KLR 650 owned by Alan Braun. The interesting thing I think about the bike is his headlight and windscreen setup. To me, that article and photos merits picking up a copy just to get a glimpse of his mods..

Anyway, I am also curious to hear from any others out there that have subscribed to the publication to share their thoughts.

Looks like a very promising magazine!

I'm attracted by the fact Dexter Ford is on the masthead (i.e., on the editorial staff of the publication). Dexter, some forum members may know, was FIRED from a prominent motorcycle publication for writing the truth about motorcycle helmets, disclosing facts some heavy advertisers would prefer left concealed.

I don't like the, "blah-blah-blah gotta register on the Internet, etc., etc." subscription/purchase rigamarole, but . . . may break down and buy a sample copy ($ 15.95) before I spring for a four-issue yearly subscription ($ 40).

If the magazine lives up to its promotion, it'll be worth it; some CONTENT versus the ADVERTISING CATALOGS now available on the newsstands, IMHO.

My copy is probably waiting at home for me when I get back. I'm going to guess it arrived the day after I left on Vacation.

Spammer!!!

(Yes, everyone, I'm kidding.. I've known this big ol' Tard for years and we never get a chance to ride together nearly enough.. )

Here he is near Copper Harbor, Michigan.. I took the photo and thought about putting my thumb over his head.



Unfortunately, you only get to see a little bit of the really cool bike in the photo.. Just the last few inchest of MY bike..

If he does, it's not nearly as much as my desire to cause him grief on this forum..

No undisclosed interest other than I like motorcycles. Paper got me interested into doing the dual-sport stuff over strictly street riding.

I can tell when he is around, I can smell bacon.

You can also tell if Paper is near because you will hear the faint sound of banjos.
