After twenty plus years I have decided to let my Cycle World subscription lapse. I will more than likely cancel my BMW owners membership after this year. I still like Road Runner and renewed for another three years. I have a digital subscription to BMW Magazine that is year to year. My thinking is there is so much content available at no cost why bother. I do like Rider and perused a few issues of Ride Texas. I like them but not enough to subscribe. I think I am done with periodicals.

I dropped CW decades ago after the then editor Dave Edwards lied to me. CW is just an industry rag now with hagiographical "road tests".

I kept them around because some how I was able to get an "in the industry discount" for a few dollars a year. I have never been in the industry so I am not sure how I was able to get that super secret discount. I used to ride by the Cycle World offices in Newport every once in a while. I think I kept them around because they were local to me. I never got the Peter Egan worship thing. He was fairly entertaining but that was about it. I abandoned hero worship of any kind back in my twenties. What the fuck do I know?

I still get CW.

I still enjoy paper rags. Keeps me from staring at the iPad all the time and works better at the beach.

I get Classic Bike from the UK and Automobile Magazine, the only two I'm really interested in any more. Classic Bike is starting to feature some '70's and '80's Japanese bikes along with the usual Brit and European bikes so it's a trip down memory lane for me. Automobile satisfies my lust for cars I can't afford and has some fairly decent writing, the rest I just glance at on line now and again.
