I like the Germanic/Goldwing silliness. Nice idea to have it scattered through the mag at random. If you have to explain the joke though it loses it's point.
Fayji, you & I must follow each other round the country mate. I presume you saw Gary's Panther at The Popham airfield classic bike meet?
He's a mate of mine. Known him -ooh, must be 25 years now. Definitely a "character". He & I shared a feature in Back Street Heroes back in the mid 80s. We both rode chopped XS650s but in completely different styles. Before that we'd both owned different styled chopped Bonnies. He always goes for tall & short wheelbase, I always go for long & low.
The 100% crew picked up on his Panther after seeing it on Yodie's site, where he'd reproduced the featurette on it from my site. The BSH Yam write up's on mine too.

You can remember what you like, flower, but I found out about it from the pix that Pat gave me that the owner sent in and arranged to have it photographed from there ...

If people dont like nik being editor then thats their perogative but nik got the job for a reason, he was and is the best man for the job, only time will tell if he stays or goes, its niks / managements decision not any-one else's and if you dont like it then tough, there's the door dont let it hit you on the way out.

I dont see this as a personal issue actually.

100% Biker is a business - it's got to make money. To make money, you sell mags, advertising and merchandise. Get the mag right and people will buy it, the advertisers follow. Get the 100% stall right, people buy merchandise and the mag. Let the mag and the stall slip ............ well, sure you can work the rest out.

Nor me.
The only personal attacks in this whole shebang have been from, not at, nik.
I've simply taken issue with his attitude on here.
Ain't personal to me, anybody who pisses me off gets a fucker, magazine editor, postman, copper, just happens to be a mag editor.
