Already subscribed to MC? Here is a list of other fine magazines you might be interested in.
When is the best your only choice? When it's MOTORCYCLE CRUISER MAGAZINE!!! The only magazine dedicated to the every brand of the CRUISER type of motorcycle. Every 2 months you get a picture filled mag, with articles on anything from how to screw a chrome nut, to full overall maintenance of your cruiser. How can you lose!!!
No, I'm not 'just saying that', to sell you a subscription! I'm a subscriber! I have been a subscriber for over two years now, and have been ever since I first heard of it way back then. (I own their first issue, even) Maybe it's just me, but I feel it is only right that we combine our efforts to support something that has our best interest at heart. I'd hate to see this magazine go the way of say, Cycle Magazine's BLVD, which has closed down, now... So, it's up to you...
There is another good reason to subscribe, if you need another, if you subscribe using the link above, you will also be directly supporting the Suzuki Intruder 1500 LC Homepage, which is something that countless people enjoy. Both owner's of the LC and owners of other brands of bikes come to the page hoping to find exactly what they DO find... Stories, experiences and pictures of motorcycle bikers having a good time on their chosen rides!!! (I know, cos I have a mailbox full of evidence of that... and you can check out the guestbook, if you still have any doubts! Anyway... That's what it's always been about, people. Enjoying what you have to the fullest.

To conclude, a personal note:
At last! A magazine for the serious motorcycle cruiser owner! I both predicted that such a magazine would emerge (in 1994) and subscribed to it the moment I knew it existed. I feel all owners of cruiser-type bikes should have at least ONE magazine that they feel is their own... and this one is mine!
Not only are they a bunch of friendly people at the magazine headquarters, they also often publish their eMail addresses along with articles, so people can get in touch with the authors! Talk about progress!
There are many sections in this magazine, one of them is "Reader's Rides", where people can send in pictures of themselves and their rides, with a small story to go with the pic (a lot like the Suzuki Intruder 1500 LC Homepage Owner's Pages, but we have a Gallery too)!
Just so you know how much I enjoy this magazine: When I first got it, I felt it was worth it's weight in gold! I spent days going through every inch of it, checking out all the ads for various stuff I never knew existed... Reading the articles, by the time I got the next issue, I knew the first one by heart!!! Also, now, don't laugh, since I knew there would be nothing for the next 2 months, I read them SLOWLY!!! I take them page by page... Taking in all the details. A bit like when people during war time got sweets. They ate it little by little enjoying every bite. I know what they went through!
There are not that many good, dedicated motorcycle cruiser magazines out there... Many of them are full of Harley propoganda... So when a good, "free" one, comes along, I hope you appreciate it enough to give it the support it deserves, both to keep it in business and support a good cause! You see? The survival of good things is, and has always been, up to us...
