ABR Magazine

Post by Loggy » Fri May 02, 2014 7:05 pm

Okay the last issue was for March/April. We are now in May. So where is the Mag? Usually magazines are issued ahead of time, so can someone tell me when the next issue is due please???

After buying the mag from WH Smiths since conception, I got a subscription for one of my Xmas presents. Since then the issue dates seem to be all over the place! :huh:

Should be in shops next week. Takes a bit of doing getting it to print, sometimes with a bit of delay. So apologies for that.

Loggy, you and your Africa Twin are in it if that's any consolation.

ps. Your bike was looking dirty.

Yeah, should be Hotbulb. Not making excuses but once the mag goes to print it's in the hands of the printer's, and then the distribution company, hence why impossible to say a firm date. That said, blame lies with me for not getting it to the printer's early enough.

We've been here before though haven't we ? What is causing the delay ? Writing the articles etc...so all the stuff at Team ABR or is it a printer/distribution problem. If the latter, shouldn't ABR be looking at a new printer/distributor?
It's a recipe for people pulling out of subscribing as well as losing sales in the newsagents, so a very slippery slope.


Not bothered to edit/delete but seen your last post.

Honest reason, we're a tiny, tiny team, not a fraction the size of the other mags, pulling some stupid hours to get it out. We do what we can. All I can do is apologise for the delay. Hopefully the delay will be worth it. We've got a lot of stuff in this issue. New Super Ten, KTM 1190 Adventure R and GSA, V-Strom 1000, a bit on panniers, also a couple going around the world for the last 11 years. Tent test, SBW sidecar feature, Green Lanes and UK roads as usual. New products and a guy that travels America on his KLR650 looking for old abandoned buildings. We've also got a cover that you'll either love or hate, or be indifferent about. 162 pages; it's the thickest issue yet; 100 pages of those are advertising, naturally.
