My wife, fearing that my boredom and my isolation might lead to self harm or worse, stopped by a book store and brought home a bunch of motorcycle magazines. Of the four titles she purchased three were UK publications and two out of the four featured a Norton on the cover. How great is that? I particularly enjoyed a magazine called "Classic Motorcycle Mechanics." It represents my own history of hauling bikes back to the house and making them valuable member's of society again. It also got me thinking how much I miss periodicals in our digital age. I miss the indepth articals (although the print is kind of small for older eyes.) I miss the ads and the classified that I used to pore over. The best part is they do not go away. They remain ready and functional at all times. I have been digesting these publications slowly, first looking at the pictures, then reading the interesting articles and much later reading the less interesting stories. What a great way to spend a rainy afternoon.
