The Ton-up Club!
Weird as it sounds, even a classic motorcycle magazine has to keep up with the times. For example, it’s been a while since even the CMM office has seen a Hermes typewriter and while our amazing archive is full of gorgeous black and white (and colour) prints and transparencies, we use more digital than ‘actual’ pictures in today’s day and age. It’s just the way things have developed (ahem…). Truth be told, magazines need to evolve to survive and that means we need to move onwards (and hopefully upwards) and keep abreast of the big trends. Now, while we still get the odd hand-written letter from our dear readers, the majority of you send in emails, which means you’re mostly computer and internet literate. This is why we’ve been pushing our new website (www.classicmechanics.com) and our Facebook and Twitter pages with CMM contributor Scott Redmond. Now, the web page has some ‘At a Glance Guides’, ‘Q&A’ and our news and calendar sections there for you to take a gander at, among others. Meanwhile our buzzing social media pages (and Facebook specifically) is the place to be for old bike banter. Best of all, we’ve just broken through the 100,000 ‘likes’ threshold. With this in mind, we are spannering up unique content and project bikes that will solely exist on social media. Check it all out as it happens on: www.facebook.com/ Classicmechanics/
