    Bike is the best for me

    Essentially, all of them! He likes the mechanical aspect more then tarty Sunday run bling or choppers, but if its a good mag he will read and enjoy it. I suppose main focus would be mags that do mechanical stuff or adventure touring but as I say, looking to see what else is out there that he might not pick up inn smiths.

    Did a year of msl but once subscription ran out went back to bike, I read it as a youth and it is still informative with a touch of irreverence

    I get Practical Sportsbikes, it’s pretty good for mechanical stuff, but you can pick it up in smiths, used to get TBM aaaages ago, I have no idea if it’s even published anymore.

    Yeah bike was something he used to have piles of, probably still in the loft, will see if he has a sub. I remember Ogri posters in the house as a kid 😆

    Adventure bike rider is a good bit of escapism I find. Writting can be a bit variable but I like it mostly.

    Old mans birthday soon and he is quite into his motorbikes.

    With all these fancy posh mtb mags coming out I wondered if there was a bikers equivalent I should consider subscribing for him?

    Suggestions?

    Cheers

    Practical Sportsbike one if likes to tinker or Performance Bike is a great mag IMO.

    Second for Adventure Bike Rider and my dad gets Motorcycle Sport and Leisure, both focussed on the joy of riding and telling stories with some test and long termers thrown in for good measure. I’d highly recommend both!

    Classic Bike is great. Takes me a week to read.

    Check out Classic Motorcycle Mechanics

    It’s not only classics, but a lot of the 80’s and 90’s bikes which I use to ride – Covers mechanics, restoration and articles.
    I was given a subscription as a gift and will definitely renew when it expires.

    I have a sub to Classic Bike (xmas present) and subscribed to Real Classic in the past, of the two I think I prefer Real Classic, the machines in Classic Bike are a bit esoteric, expensive, etc, Real Classic a bit more real world, just getting back into Bike and it’s pretty good too

    Big fan of RiDE personally, it’s the best in terms of practical stuff and less of the willy waving power rangers wheelie stuff in the other mags,

    If you want fancy like Privateer or Rouler (spelling) check out Iron and Air, although it may be a little niche and Sunday Poser

    I like Motorcycle Sport and Leisure and Adventure Rider for the travel stories, Bike is a bit too much of a general Top Gear style of mag (although i still buy it)
