I just got in from the mailbox. It's soooo cold out today. 3 layers of clothes just to go to the box. My nose is running and freezing into my 'stache. Man I'm really starting to hate winter in Ontario. But wait! what's this! ...a ray of SUNSHINE!!!! WOOOOO HOOOOOO!! My Premier Edition of IRONBUTT Magazine is here. All is not lost. Life's good. There is a glimmer of hope. I shall savour this moment. As soon as I'm done reading my latest RoadRunner Magazine I will read my new IRONBUTT Magazine. Glory be!!!!!!


Oh crap, kids got a hockey game to go to. Time to layer up again.

Maybe a little mid winter Ride would make me feel better. dry.gif

Say what? Get that thing moved into the library and get it cracked open (pun intended). Look for me, OCFJR and BIODSL and our bikes in the photo on the inside cover.

Got mine a few days ago. flipped through it and going to read it this weekend now that I'm not on-call 24/7 for two weeks. Looks very glossy with better production value than I expected for the cost. Everything looked good except for the pictures of gay FJR's and the article by some Dale guy.

It wasn't until I saw the announcement of the issue on the LD list that I remembered, "Oh yeah, I never signed up for the premier membership." Got that done a few days after the announcement, but I assume that puts me at the end of the line for the mag if I get it at all. It hasn't arrived yet.

Thanks Dale,

Just about finished with my copy. I'm reading it at work between part cycles on the vertical lathe.

Don, when is the Candy Butt Association Premier issue coming out? clapping.gif
What articles can we expect to see in it? biggrin.gif

Not only no, hell FUCK no, we are not putting any photos of some goofy-ass car tire on a FJR in this magazine! It's embarrassing enough to see this idiocy happening in our bike community to begin with, but we are certainly NOT going promote this brain-damaged idea by printing photos of them in a nation-wide periodical! Sheese!

On a much happier note, I am quite pleased the FJR has turned out to be *the* mainstream sport-touring platform in the Long Distance community, if photos in this premier issue is any indication. I haven't done a thorough comparison count in this first issue yet, but our FJR may be the most photographed bike... I count no less than seventeen (17) FJR photographs in this premier issue - might be the #1 photographed bike in the mag! biggrin.gif
