Thanks for ‘real world’ motorcycling read
I have picked up a copy of MCM in recent months and found it to be an excellent and comprehensive read for ‘real world’ motorcycling.
I ride a modern bike (2013 Ducati Multistrada) and an old bike (1997 Ducati 900ss). They are light years apart technologically. The Multistrada is very forgiving and papers over my deficiencies, while the 900ss does not. I know what I cannot do on a bike and while modern bikes do everything with ease, they do not make me a better rider. So, I have to be honest with myself when I ride any bike or I will be inspecting the nearest ditch.
I enjoy this honest approach from the MCM journalists. Recently, in a test, the rider admitted he preferred riding a BMW in Rain mode to the derision of the other journalists on the test. Let’s face it we are not all trying to find the limits of our machines and most of us cannot replicate the knee down, one wheel approach of many motorcycle journalists.
MCM’s ‘real world’ approach to testing is both refreshing and enlightening.
Kind regards and best wishes, Paul Clark Torquay
Thanks for the kind words Paul. MCM is all about the fun of motorcycling and we do try to reflect that in what we do. We’d love to hear more from anyone who rides regularly about what riding means to them, no matter what (or how) they ride.
We’re all part of the same family and it’s completely brilliant. TC
