I cancelled all my subscriptions until Jimmy Lewis became editor of Dirt Rider. Actually worth reading now IMO.

I get two mags ... RacerX and DR . Jimmy Lewis was the reason for the new subscription, first for DR in many years.
Same here,the only two moto mags I bother with. Was actually going to let DR run out and not renew right around the time JL took over,worth reading now.

Dang I hope my pony express rider has a fresh horse and got it to my place TODAY! Can hardly wait to read the article! Since I didn't really follow any of the other build ups it will be interesting to see if it's one of those everybody is a winner writeups or if they actually comment with both positive AND negative on each of the builds.

The brutal honesty is apparent especially in the opinion of 1 bike. Overall the reviews are middle of the road complimentary but the testers do acknowledge good and bad for the bikes they rode. In the end DRN shined through with an exceptional bike and the exceptional members we have.

Well no mag in the mail yet :(

If it wasn't an everybody wins type of writeup I guess we'll see some sour grapes threads. I really think if for some strange reason the DRN bike had gotten ripped that it would have been more of a learning experience that we could have all used for the next time. Even as it is I'm sure there is room to improve.

It is in the August issue.

The article has a few pages explianing the I-forum bike idea itself..
and then goes into about 5 pages on each bike entered, with details,specs, photos and ride impressions.
pretty cool!
very interesting article for sure!
Since i had the good fortune to see all the great bikes first hand, its a very good
overall view and background on them.
Jimmy had a great idea,
and big thanks to DRN , for the oppurtunity to build a bike for your entry.
