I do love the commercial. The music so dramatic.
Just recently saw a Cycle Source Magazine in a Borders. Maybe I need to check it out.
This is my favorite rag...seriously. I love Cycle Source. I buy other rags but if I only have a few bucks...Cycle Source is the best.I love everything the editor, Chris Callen, writes. I urks me sometimes because he has never written anything that I don't agree with 100%...makes me feel un-original, but pfffftttt...whatever.If I was allowed to only buy one rag...this is the one to buy. Look, I love the ladies too, but these guys focus more on bikes...I already know how to work on women...even though Iv'e gone pro. ;)
If I were Cycle Source I wouldn't hang my hat on being less entertaining to my market. I think they realize that fact as they compensated by producing a dramatic piece filled with the some cool entertaining things to watch. Their message is that they have more relevant information. Okay. I doubt that they can be over the top - way more informative. Ex: American Iron is darn informative. Fact is, magazines are an entertainment media, and rely on the visual to entertain as much as the content to inform. Did you notice how many seconds the tech portion was shown - maybe one second? In the biker's world a huge part of entertainment is the fairer gender. So is the message anti-biker woman? They are also anti-some-guy-with-a-helmet? What does he represent? Just sayin the brand has a lot going for it, this video didn't help. - Sorry if I'm coming off as a jerk. Ugh.
I'll pick one up soon. Looks good to me. Being old school and all, I'm sure I'll like it.
