Anyone out there Maxim lovers? I just the newest issue in the mail, and aside from it being the Swimsuit issue:drool: :drool: I found an article in there about street racing in there on bikes. Kinda like a Biker Boyz style article, but I wasn't too impressed with it. Now am I being hypocritical, since I like to ride fast on the street too, that an article like this could give us bad reps? Lemme know what you all think on this.

I get Maxim, but am two months behind in reading. So, ask me again in March :rolleyes:

We don't get good media. Its like a PAC giving only neutral, factual advice to legislators; it just doesn't happen.

Well, like I said, it's only part of the article. It's pretty plain to see where it heads though, so reading the rest of it is probably not needed.

It's Friday man, I've been having dumb-ass attacks all day.....and I'm okay with that. :thumb: :D

I heard about the article on another board and bought the magazine at the newstand. As expected, the article was dumb since the magazine caters to the average male, not a motorcyclist. It's a good thing it's also the swimsuit issue to make my $5 worth it.

Also, I don't think the article will make the motorcyclist's image any worse seeing the magazine is Maxim, not Time or Newsweek. :)

I am with Tippmann & others that look upon this pile of crap as being BAD for us that ride m/cs & especially sportbikes.

Anyone that thinks this is great stuff then they need their heads examined with a dull axe.

Eh, I usually find the mag entertaining, though I haven't been subscribed long. However, I'm so displeased with the article I won't be renewing.

I was most amused by the sheer incompetence of the central interviewee. First, he said, "It's [street racing] like a roller coaster, but faster. And you're in control." (Yeah, right.) Then, later he says, "I've been down like, 10, 12 times. You play Russian roulette once you put the key in the ignition..." Uh, aren't those opposite statements? He's got a daughter, which made me sad since Darwin clearly didn't step in soon enough. But he'll arrive eventually.

Yeah, the story was trash, but I had to finish it. Dan, you out in the Bronxx racin' wit da boyz? :rolleyes:

Baffled as to why people would subscribe to a mag or buy one that leans in that direction.

I have subscribed for many yrs to Soldier of Fortune, American Handgunner, & several other m/c mags.

Far better reading those then something like a swimsuit issue.

Just goes to show what happens when it comes to an age difference. Like well before I was a teen my Father destroyed the few comic books I had & started buying & supplying me with mags like Mechanics Illustrated, Modern Science, to even some mags on sports.
