Good Magazines?

I have been thinking of picking up a couple motocycle magazines. I did a quick search on here but didn't find anything good. My parents get tons, but they ride HD's so they are no help to me. I was wondering if their are any good mags for sportbikes? Which do you guys recommend?

There very few..

T.W.O. (Two Wheels Only).
The best. If they like bike they will tell you, if they dislike it or it has major problems they will just come out and say exactly what it is wrong. It British, so the prices are all in pounds. But there bikes comparison are second to none. Sometimes Barnes & Nobles has them. If you want to stay in the U.S., Sportrider is also very through, but not as good.
The bad news is T.W.O is about $9 to $10 a copy at the newstand. Subscription is about $70 a year with the discount online.
If you like bling then Super Streetbike is okay.

I always pick up a copy of SSB Super Street Bike. Its always good for cool custom and stunting pics. But if you want something more serious try Cycle World.

Superbike is my favorite (also British) but the best U.S. mag by far is Sport Rider.

Hi All-

My preference is to purchase at the newsstand when there are specific articles of interest. My clear favorites are Motorcyclist, Cycle World, and Sport Rider.

Motorcyclist, Sport Rider, Cycle World

Yes, exactly what Blue Jays said. You can subscribe to these mags for about $10/year. A really good deal considering the newstand price is $4/issue.
