I've been amazed for several years at the resiliency of the paper mags. RRX's articles were at least 1.5 mos old and what could possibly be covered in the mag that hasn't been covered on the race/enthusiast forums? Cycle News always had the scoop on them although my mailman admitted that he read my CN issues before he delivered them.

When MXI went under, RX stepped up, hired WordNerd and honored the remainder of my subscription so it's nice that RRW is covering the balance for us.:rockon

Roadracing World and Motorcycle Technology is going to honor the remaining subscriptions to RRX
Roadracing World Will Fulfill Subscriptions To Road Racer X Magazine, Which Has Ceased Publication News Article // RoadracingWorld.com

Have fun reading about Chris Ulrich explaining it was that last 0.4mm pf ride height adjustment the factory mechanics wouldn't give him at the test launch of <insert bike here>, therefore the bike never felt right and must suck.
ha!

too funny, Ive met the guy a few times and "chip on his shoulder" doesn't even begin to describe the guy. Nice dude though, when he can mustard a smile.

Im amazed that they cant even continue some sort of site for this publication. My friend is/was the chief editor for Adventure Life and when they shut down, he was able to get enough backing to continue online, and has kept it up successfully since...... but what the **** do i really know about what it takes honestly. Im sure they wouldve loved to if they could.

Great pics and articles but I allowed my subscription to expire last year because
it didn't feed the technical side of my brain enough... I prefer to read about
engineering ideas not people...

i liked the pictures, the yearly photo issue, etc. I don't think i ever picked up any mag outside of RRW to actually read anything i didn't already know from somewhere else.

In this day of instant smartphone news, historical printed reports are obsolete.

I quit reading CU when he wrote obnoxious f-bomb articles as a spoiled teenager.

A few years back at VIR his SS ride spit him off and ghost down the track.
Fastest that Suzuki went all weekend.
