I think all the bike mags need a bit of passion injecting into them.
Like when the Mad Count was with SF mag.
Fast Bikes doing 200mph rampages across Europe.
Its all gone too PC smashing nicey.
Needs adrenalin and some anti authority badly.
Where's the defribulator?.........

Thats my take.

100% biker was always about our lifestyle and for years we supported the editor, by making sure we gave them loads of material, and we left them alone. Ive always had the utmost respect for any editor on the bike seen wether I have personally liked or loathed them

these days I suspect that the input from us the readers has dwindled from those heady days ( that made the magazine into what weall wanted) down to poor ol Blue sat at her desk, struggling to try n keep the magazine where it should be. Instead of here sifting thru our rally reports, bike builds, bits abou our lives ect and then just having to get the right balance.

A very thankless task - and I suspect a very frustrating one for Blue at times.

Its a real shame as we can now email, send stories b FB and a multitude of other ways that we could help

If you want it changing or want to change the content then write something and send it in you never know it might get published

Within the last two decades we have seen social media explode from it's humble origins on news groups through the days of Forums through to the domination of facebook and others such as Instagram and what's ap etc. The Digital Revolution has given us so many ways to communicate both personally and communally that its been hard for many to keep pace with the rapid advance of technology. Where it will take us in the next 5 years is anybody's guess.

Star Trek's Holodeck is almost upon us. We are near to perfecting computer Virtual Reality programmes as it is. Unfortunately , I believe the written word as such will eventually fade into obscurity, as well as the English language as we know it. "Text Speak" is already creeping into the dictionary. Yes it is bloody hard for magazines to keep up with the modern form of media. We want things and we want it now! God knows what the future brings....

But you won't be able to take out the centre folds of your favourite bike/pop/porn mag and pin them on the walls like you used too and the photos are copyrighted so you wont be able to put them on one of those photo viewer thingies. Ah! The good old days.....

You would have to buy a pack of iNails from apple at 600 a go. I think they stole their marketing strategy from Ewokandtuck.com

I have always believed that we (being our current universe as we know it) are in fact just one big atom/molecule in some other rather large alien? Just because, we as an advanced human life form (as current evolution allows) can only study an atom as being the smallest item that we can know it (as technology advances, who knows somebody may find a way of magnifying an atom further, without blowing humankind up first!

So working on that basis, why not upsize the universe as just one big molecular structure within something else?

I think I need to lay down!...

The way we are treating this planet, I wouldn't be surprised. This world will end up like one big Malteser without the chocolate coating!

The kiss of death for some bike mags is when the media giants take them over.
Most media is owned by the same 6 global groups.
Running a mag about custom bikes and messin around on bikes is never going to make money if the office is in Canary Wharf at 5gazillion pounds per square foot office rental ffs.
You don't need to be a bleedin economist to work it out.

Fair comment Creature. There did used to be so much more varied contributions in custom bike mags, and it must be a thankless task putting the mags together with out them at times. I'm a shit photographer but I think I'm going to give that a go at the next HD rally I'm going to, it's worth a shot.

go on give it a try - you will enjoy it - pics need to be max resolution of your camera (sorry cant remember what min specs are) and 100 - 250 words ( but sure reqular contributer or Blue can confirm what they need

The missus and I are going to Wake the Lakes in July as good as any a point to start at. It's a half decent camera in the hands of an idiot, but with a bit of practice , who knows. Cheers for the advice.
