Pre-race meeting 

Did you know you can help us decide what goes into each issue of Motorcycle Classics? You can, simply by joining our Editorial Advisory Group. If you’re not already a member of our advisory group, you probably didn’t realize that we survey every issue of Motorcycle Classics. In addition to giving their opinions on specific motorcycles and story ideas, advisory group members also choose the cover of every issue of Motorcycle Classics, helping us craft the classic motorcycle magazine you want to read.

In addition to helping us decide what goes into the magazine, advisory group members also give us feedback on the types of bikes they actually own and what they’re hoping to have parked in their garage next so we can learn more about our readers. We’ve been doing it this way since we started Motorcycle Classics over five years ago, and it’s helped us ensure Motorcycle Classics is your magazine.

And we won’t inundate you with surveys; we typically send out one to two a month. If you haven’t signed up yet, just follow this link to the Editorial Advisory Group sign up page. Hope to see your comments on a survey soon! – Richard Backus

I would like to see an article about what got folks interested in riding motorcycles. For me it was a TV show in 1969 called, Then Came Bronson, I was 13 and started riding in 1971 on a 1971 Honda CL100, then a 1974 Harley-Davidson Sportster XLH 1000.

I'm ready for you to devote an entire issue to the Honda Shadow. It's one of the most important bikes in motorcycle history and the beginning of the Jap Cruiser revolution.

I have a suggestion........... With all the people collecting and restoring '60's and '70's bikes how about interviewing them about their technique, barn finds, parts finds and so on and include pictures of their collections.

I think that you should ask readers for suggestions of articals they would like to read. I can think of a few right away. 1. What country has the best selection of classic bikes and parts available. 2. What is the history of the Russian Ural is it acually a BMW aquired during WW2. 3. History of the Curtis motorcycle. 4. The best and worst military motorcycles WW1 and WW2 5. Let your readers vote on the 25 best motorcycles of all time. 6. A comparison study of the most dependable, and cost effective classic motorcyles to own/restore.
