Welcome friends to the July/August issue. I hope that where you are summer riding season is in full swing and that the reward of winter wrenching is being found in happily-running bikes all around.

First, I wanted to say thank you to the surprising outpouring of responses to the question I posed in the March/April issue regarding long-term motorcycle ownership. I’ve received more than a few dozen responses, and I hope to feature as many of them as possible in our Readers and Riders section in this and future issues.

I was amazed to hear all the stories of bikes that readers have had for decades, and a great many of you sent sharp photos to go along with the letters. It’s been quite a treat for me, so again, thank you.

Motorcycle shows and events are beginning to return. Our Texas correspondent Corey Levenson made his way to both the Texas Vintage Motorcycle Fandango in Fredericksburg, Texas, and a gathering of the Lone Star Chapter of the Vincent Owners Club in nearby Kerrville, Texas, the same weekend in April. Read all about it here.

Here in Kansas, the AHRMA Classic Motofest in the Heartland took place in its new bigger and better format over Memorial Day weekend at Heartland Motorsports Park in Topeka. In addition to road racing, this year the event expanded to include sidecar racing, motocross, cross country, trials and more. Saturday featured a vintage bike show in association with the Antique Motorcycle Club of America, along with a growing swap meet.
