What's wrong with that???
general bike paper, which lightly covers most aspects of biking.
If your whole experience of bikes, is covered by what's in MCN, then i'm not surprised you like it. .

...not at all jumping to conclusions are you Trumps
But they're spot on about ASBOs :smoke:
I don't mind the idea of a general paper or indeed most of what it covers, even if I'm not particularly interested in itThe bits I do object to are the "news features" which are, as has been said, incredibly sensationalist and, frankly, usually bullshit where it concerns legislation which is allegedly in the pipelineIt happens so often that it points to one of two things: EITHER the stories are incredibly badly researched which is crap journalism, OR they are knowingly printing bullshit for the sake of sensationalist coverage and to punt up the number of half-literate replies they get to print in their woeful letters pageThey're so wrong, so often that it can't be any other way. Either one of these reasons leaves a nasty taste in the mouth and deserves abuse TBH
Why is it that MCN has such a bad rep on VD? It seems that most people slate it whereas I think it is ok for what it is - a general bike paper, which lightly covers most aspects of biking. What's wrong with that???
because it's fucking boring. only so many times i can watch this weeks 'HOTTEST 600 SHOOT OUT EVER!!!111'Yawn. No worse than the rest though.Yawn Yawn. Prawn Prawn.
Now that is also true!`That was one reason why I stopped buying Performance bikes - sick to death with their 600 / 750 / 1000 / 1200+ shootouts." We put four of the top 1000cc bikes against each other to find out which is the ultimate machine....." - Don't fucking bother, it's the same as it was three weeks ago unless one of the big four have brought out a revamped model whereupon that one will be the fastest, allowing you do lap Donington .02 seconds faster......
allowing you do lap Donington .02 seconds faster......
I was telephone interviewed for their GSXR special at late notice. I had a 92 water cooled 750. I mentioned this several times and was quoted mentioning something about the water cooling. They said as we can't photo your bike we'll use a library photo, fine says I. Rag comes out and they've stuck a 91 oil cooled bike next to my interview Making me look like I'm a donley and don't even know how my own bike was cooled.
