Great news for us readers and forum members. Congratulations Blue, well done. I wish you every success. I might even be tempted to do some scribbling again.

Sorry but I like the mag pretty much as it is (except the quads) and hope it doesn't turn into a BSH clone.
Having said that, I wish you every success and if it does change how about trying to emulate Awol a bit?

Thank you everyone for your kind words. No, panic ye not - I've got no intention of making 100% into a BSH clone. Instead, I'd like to take all the best of 100%, BSH and AWoL (and I think I'm the only person to have edited all three) and make one absolutely amazing and unstoppable magazine. I'm always open to ideas and opinions, although I may fall over laughing at some of them...

Thank you again.

I was always a fan of AWOL and Custom Bike, bought Back Street Heroes in the early days but soon switched off when the magazines aimed at the lower end bikes turned up. I bought Brit Chopper when it was around so will buy another issue of 100% and see if its worth re subscribing also.

Also any chance of bikes and trikes in the same mag without having to buy two?

That's what does it for me. One of the reasons why I'm more than happy to carry on writing!

Well now......I go off for a while and come back to find the ladies are taking over everywhere! (Which is no bad thing unless you're too much into the All American Macho thing .......or a member of the Taliban)

Congratulations to Blue for getting at the helm of the mag. (good to have someone who can write an intelligent article) and I hope the mag. will continue in its tradition of keeping in touch with the 'grass roots' (something BSH seemed to lack), though feel free to discard Nic's recent obsession with scrawling inane captions all over the photos.............

......which was REALLY REALLY IRRITATING!!

Good.
But now you've gotta refer to the mag as 'Biker', which nobody else but nik ever did.
Finish every paragraph with "don't they?", "isn't it?", "haven't you?", etc.
Put a stoopid comment on every pic.
Include 4 pages of jokes every so often.


Feel free not to bother though.

Taff, it's always been 100% to me, and I'm too old to change my habits!

I'm afraid that there will probably be some captions where events require it - but I like captions that are informative or mean that people can see a bike referred to in the article. My intention is to put a wide variety of stuff in the magazine, whether it be British, Japanese, American or European. The amount of talent in the custom bike scene is incredible - from engineering to paint to engraving - and, even after all these years, I am still amazed at people's ingenuity and initiative. And, of course, there'll be a multitude of events, from little one-dayers behind the local pub to the big shows. It's rather splendid to be in a job where I'm still constantly excited and impressed by what's going on and how it's involving.

But this isn't 'my' magazine - it's yours. I figure you'll tell me what I'm getting wrong - and, hopefully, right.

I must be missing something but didn't have any problems with Nik as editor. In saying that did prefer the mag in the early days, it was more grass roots then. Looking forward Blue taking over. Think it will make a good mag great.

Thank you Whistler. You'll make me cry - and that would be my reputation out of the window!
