Issue 2. Has a bitchen Indian on the cover. Looks like a dirt tracker.Please don't flame me for asking this question.....so if I go to my local grocery store's magazine section and see a Cycle World mag it'll contain this article? Am I'm buying the May or June '18 printing??
Says, they were and are freaking awesome. Of course. >I can't make out the words, what does it say about the bike?
I could not have written a better response! I finally found a copy at Barnes & Noble. I have a martini nearby and will sip and read.....Thanks for the tip! Went out and bought my copy. Hope the "upscale" move allows them to survive as there are times I enjoy reading a "hard copy".
I have a copy of the July 1991 issue with the 900 SS test and it was that article that prompted me to start thinking about buying a 900 SS. I'd had a 860 bevel back in the day - it was heavy, solid and sounded great with the Conti's. In 1994 I was given an ISP assignment in Zürich and that was what I needed to try and make it happen.I wrote Cagiva re where I might find one and Bruce Fairey wrote me back suggesting that MCC in Chicago had one. I called them from CH and Geoff Mellinger told me they had sold all their 1994's but had just received their first 1995. So, I made arrangements to buy it and have it flown over. It certainly was his first as it's plate reads 001.
Peter Egan is also one of my fav. bike writers - I have both of his "Leanings" books to prove it.
Good luck to them and let's hope they make it.
