RealClassic Magazine October 2018 Back Issue

View Reviews   |   Write Review Only €5,99 RealClassic magazine features the very best British motorcycles from all eras, plus charismatic Continental machines (and the odd Japanese classics crops up occasionally, too).

Long term classic riders will recognise many of the members of the RC team, which includes authors, historians and journalists like Steve Wilson, Dave Minton, Matt Vale, Odgie, Jacqueline 'PUB' Bickerstaff, Rowena Hoseason and editor Frank Westworth -- but the magazine's key feature is that it is firmly grounded in the real world. Our articles are written by real life riders and reflect far more than a simple road test ever can. We're never scared of getting grubby in The Shed (and we even admit it when things go horribly wrong!)

RealClassic  |  October 2018  


First things should almost always come first. So – a big thank-you to all who completed our recent online survey. I’m no great fan of the things, but in this case they really do help us get an idea of what you want, what you like and what you don’t. It’s too easy to be blinkered, to consider only the opinions of those who we meet in person out there in classicland.

And yes indeed, an online survey is always going to be skewed a little, because by its very nature it’s restricted to those who are both netted together and are also happy to complete surveys. That aside, it was a remarkably useful exercise, which is not always the case. And as usual, I’m personally (ie. without my ‘professional’ hat on) most interested in the marques and types of bikes you ride. It’s a fascinating array, and every bit as varied as you’d probably expect from reading the magazine. Everything from very ancient (very few of those), peaking around 1960 to 1980, but then declining only gracefully up to the modern day, where we discovered that a remarkable proportion of RC readers ride new motorcycles.

Do not fret: this does not mean that we’re likely to alter the mix of motorcycles in these smudgy pages to include 50% new bikes. Probably!

More entertainment was provided by a multiple-choice question asking what you would like to see more or less of in these pages. One of the categories included modern retros or classic-styled new bikes. The great majority of respondents were perfectly happy with the current level (which is pretty small, deliberately so) while a small proportion wanted to see a lot more, and almost exactly the same proportion wanted to see none at all! Interpreting these things provides hours of harmless fun, although everything is open to interpretation – even the results of the original interpretation. I’ll stop now while I’m ahead...
