The latest edition of Performance Bikes arrived on Saturday. So I currently have copies of not only Performance Bikes, but a whole issue of Bike, half an issue of RiDE and a few pages of Practical Sportsbikes to read. This is getting insane. I've subscribed to four issues a month for two years now and this is the first time that the magazines have started piling up, but I'm feeling that I want to be able to read some more books as well, so I'm leaning towards dropping one title from my monthly diet. Thankfully the decision of which title to drop isn't a hard one. RiDE remains the magazine I have least in common with, so its the one that has to go. Is it a bad magazine? Not at all, but reading about tourers and waterproof kit doesn't really trigger my excitement in any meaningful way. The great thing about magazines thou, is that if I need/want something to read I can always pick then up from any supermarket or newsagent

Nothing gives me the feeling of freedom, even when stuck in a city. In 2010 I became a RoSPA gold rider, but when it comes down to it, I'm Just a normal man, riding his bikes as often as he can.
