I subscribe to a whole lot of motorcycle magazines, primarily to have something bike related to do during the long winter months. I get Rider (my favorite), Motorcycle Consumer News, Motorcyclist, Cycle World, Cruiser, Motorcycle Touring and Travel, the AMA monthly mag, and maybe one or two more that I can't think of right now. And lately it seems like these mags are only interested in so-called adventure bikes. Being a short guy, most of the bikes they write about would have me tippy-toeing at a stop, which is not my thing, and I know I am not likely to be wanting to ride down dirt roads and forest trails anyway. When not showing adventure bikes, they are pretty obsessed with whatever is the latest superbike that has the rider scrunched up like a jockey on a racehorse, can do 200mph right out of the box, and has more electronics than my house. Even Cruiser magazine has wandered and featured scooters and sport tourers that are more sportbikes with hard bags than they are cruiser-like. Since my age, back, and legs have made me a cruiser rider, and made me enjoy riding more than I probably have a right to enjoy, I find I flip through new issues of these mags in a few minutes and then put them aside in the pile I reserve for a friend who wants my old magazines. I think maybe I will stop renewing the subscriptions on all but three: Rider, MCN, and Cruiser and rely on real books for my restroom meditation visits.
