    Sad end, I represented Road Rider''s original publisher, Roger Hull when he sold the magazine in the early 80's, and meet my best friend and riding buddy Clem Salvadori there in 1980.

      That's Clem on the cover.

          Not sure why I have it. I also have a 1982 that must have had a article I wanted to save.
          I no longer save magazines or books.
          Before the internet I would save magazines that had tech or travel articles I was interested in.

                Gave up on it a couple of years back when they had a self righteous LEO (writing OP's) saying it was okay to pull over only motor cycles for "inspection". Prior to that they did not have the budget to buy enough stuff to look over for decent product reports. No loss.

                  I think I met the then current owner back in the 90's.

                  He was at a Honda Hoot in TN and trying to drum up subscriptions.

                  Don't remember his name.

                  Never subscribed but heard it had good info.

                    Seems like the number of monthly American motorcycle magazines, that used to arrive by mail by subscription, or available on the newstand, is rapidly becoming close to extinction.

                      I think it's print magazines or print media in general. I subscribed to National Geographic Traveler, was a great travel magazine. Got a letter from them that they were discontinuing and they sent me the regular National Geographic for the remainder of my subscription. Newspapers are having a tough time too.
