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/
