Cons: Women aren't completely naked
There's nothing hotter than a naked woman on a rocking motorcycle, and for this I have to thank Easyriders magazine for their fantastic work. Over the years the women featured has improved, to almost Playboy Bunny material, and this publication has always been the leading authority when it comes to motorcycles, tattoos, and the biking lifestyle. Its been around a long time, and with its recent production of issue 434, its going strong, and read by millions each month. You can subscribe to it, or do as I do, which is purchase the issue where there's a real honey on the cover, that's sitting on a Harley Davidson that costs more than my annual salary.
The centerfold in each month's issue can be pulled out of the magazine, and hung on a wall at a repair shop, or just looked upon with sheer admiration. Whoever the stunning beauty is on the cover, that's who is going to be part of this section. On one side of this is the busty woman on a featured motorcycle, usually with a mischievious grin, and a hand on the bars. The back side is eye candy as well, as there's a souped up motorcycle in full color, that will convince you to spend more than you can afford at the dealership. For the price of admission, this is almost worth it, but there's so much more to each issue.
Each one has about four feature articles, and while some specialty magazines are poorly written, this one delivers the goods. Usually these have a customized bike, with lots of great pictures, and the articles detail how they were built, and what kind of modifications were completed to make them as great as they are. You really get an idea of how these machines were built from scratch, and even casual bike fans, will learn to appreciate the blood, sweat, and tears required to complete such an endeavor. Due to my laid back status, sometimes I have to check the net' to understand a concept, but real bike guru's will read through this with full comprehension.
I love their articles about bike rallies. Usually one is covered in each issue, and I am dreaming about attending the massive one in Laconia, NH one year. These are cool events, and the pictures and stories in these have made me laugh, and shake my head in amazement. What's not to love about combining half naked women, booze, tattoos, and rock music, along with thousands of motorcycles? The sound alone gets me dreaming about this, and these articles are well written, and detail what you can expect when attending one of them. In addition to the articles, there are also links of where you can find rallies in your area, as well as future events that are sure to draw out crowds.
Do you like crude jokes? I do, and get my best material from their Passin' Gas section. These are not for the faint of hearted, and anything you find in here, must not be repeated at a work location. That's the exact reason I like them, because the more disgusting a joke is, the funnier it is! There are usually about ten jokes submitted, and I love the cartoon here as well. Yes, its also at a level of disgust that might make some cringe, but there's always a few jokes that deliver belly laughs. One of the least filthy one's I've seen and liked was from a reader in California named Paul Brown, who wrote "Bumper Sticker of the Month-"Impotence is Nature's way of saying No Hard Feelings."
There's a Tech Garage area each month, that would appeal to serious bikers, but a lot of its over my head. If it was about cars, I could understand the mechanical aspects, but this section is designed for someone who's building bikes from scratch. Thankfully, the Fox Hunt part is something I can understand. Its photo's of women who send in pictures of them topless, for a chance to earn some "hard earned cash". Years ago, this would be some hideous looking housewives, that would force me to look the other way. Now, there are serious honey's, and I appreciate their efforts in every regard. Thank you ladies!
Back in the 90's, Easyrider would feature women in their articles topless, that weren't much to look at. That has also changed, and they have some truly beautiful eye candy each month, riding on top of the bikes. Would I like them to be completely nude? Absolutely, but for what it's worth, topless is better than nothing. The ladies are usually wearing a revealing g-string along with being topless, so there's not much left to the imagination. One of the ladies featured is a exotic dancer that performs close to where I live, and she said it was the biggest thrill of her life to be featured on Easyrider. Yes, she's smoking hot as well, and that issue is sold at her place of business for an outrageous price.
Each issue is about one hundred pages in length, and there are enough articles to provide an hour or so of reading time. Its a bit expensive at the $6.99 cover price, but you can get it for around $2.50 or so if you subscribe. I'm thinking about doing that, because while I pick it up several times a year, it would make financial sense to just have it sent to the house. Plus, I wouldn't be looked upon like a dirty old man, while bringing it to the counter in its plastic wrapper! There are a fair amount of advertisements in here, for motorcycle manufacturers, and the gear, but its not overwhelming nor does it take away from the quality I've been pleased to expect with each issue.
I really like Easyriders, and am pleased to recommend it to those who like bikes and topless women, as well as the lifestyle that goes along with riding. It's a fantastic publication, that has improved greatly over the years. I wish the ladies could be all naked on those bikes, but beggar's can't be choosers, as no one else publishes such a magazine that is this awesome. You can find it in bookstores, or small convenience stores, but after buying one I'm sure you'll consider subscribing as well. This is the ultimate biker's magazine, and along with its eye candy, I must say that they've done a fine job in keeping me interested over the years. That's a hard accomplishment, and for that I do commend them.
