I CANNOT tolerate Dirt Bike.
I am not in it for the pictures, rather tests, evaluations, technical stuff, etc.
No Harley rags either

NH Kevin you must have a subscription to TRAIL RIDER THe Best OffRoad Magazine (mostley for euro bike riders) They have some of the best technical and riding articles.

MXA and Dirt Bike are the same publishing company. Those are the same fools who told to NEVER use race gas in the YZ-F's. They are bias, opinionated and uninformed reporting publications.

First - Dirt Rider & Trail Rider - equally informative - technically, skills training, industry and race coverage. I do feel that they are biased and have been purchased by the major manufacturers and the larger aftermarket hop-up shops. They do however, test and praise smaller shops and aftermarket products.
Second - Cycle News & Racer X - both offer excellent race coverage.
Last - Dirt Bike, MXA, MX Racer, Transworld Motocross. These mags have sold out to the advertisers so much that they are now no more than a catalog of every large supplier to the off road motorcycle industry. Their shootouts are rated by the amount that company wishes to spend with them. All of these mags have probably 70% of the pages as full page billboards for the large companies. If those advertisers got together and produced their own magazines (catalogs) there would be just about the same amount of usable info as these offer.

I can read most mags in a couple of hours, not RacerX. Haven't read anything as good, since the Hunk left DB.
