    When I was buying Cycle magazine Camerons articles were always the first thing read. One of my favourite articles was where he proposed the entire layout of the NR500 Honda based on one con rod, without seeing the rest of the engine.
    After Cycle was shut down I never got into Cycle World, aways seemed a B grade version. Camerons articles in CW are good but the magazine doesn't seem to give him enough space to fully go indepth. His books however are always A grade+
    it's not a bad thing till you throw a KLR into the mix.

    Cycle was a great read back in the day. I started reading it in the the late sixties, before I was old enough to get my licence.

    Before Kevin Cameron there was Gordon Jennings.

    A year or more back the magazine went from a monthly publication to quarterly. Presentation and print quality improved but it cost the same.

    After god knows how many years (at least fifteen) I have cancelled my subscription. I'm not paying that for a dated quarterly publication.

    Very sad. But no doubt I have saved some trees somewhere in the world.

    Thanks for posting. I have TDC1 and 2. Good reads, often for non technical reasons.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
