Which Mags?

This isn't exactly a question about bikes, but I'm not sure where else to ask it. I was wondering which bike magazines everyone reads. I like to pick up a copy of sport rider every now and then, but are there any others that people really like? Do ya'll think mags are a good way to learn about bikes and bike topics. Any other reading material out there? Thanks for the input

I like the import magazines like T.W.O. and Performance Bikes. I find more detail in their articles about bikes.

I read Motor Cyclist. It's not a sportbike only mag, but sportbikes are mostly what they cover.

It seems to me that the sportbike only mags are all about image. Yo yo yo, Snoopy snoopy poopy in the hizzy, studdin at 550, etc. Sort of a squid problem.

I like the Brit mags like Bike. They're pretty unapologetic in their criticisms, which I really like.

i like the brit mags as well because they dont hold back when doing bike/gear/parts tests. they also are pretty informed and superbike does a good job with being a fun read as well as informative. i would def. check out superbike and T.W.O

Thumbs up British Bike Mags Rule !

I agree with the other folks that suggested British Bike mags. They are more over-the-top, entertaining, as well as having a few page three type of girls sprinkled throughout.

SportRider,
Superbike (UK),
Roadracing World has great articles on racing and technology related, but all of the racing news/results are old and dated by the time it reaches your hands.
