The ever-eager Post Office appears to have beaten me to it this month and subscribers may already have received Streetfighters #227, the latest edition of this magnificent tome, which will be going on sale on Thursday 6th December. Or, of course, pick up your copy over-the-counter from the merchandise man Glyn at the Custom Xtreme area of Motorcycle Live right now.
On the cover is Hez’s awesome GIA-framed GSX-R 1216, making what appears to be good, safe progress. The centrespread feature is Marc Berry’s purple Germanic GSX-R 1000K3, as photographed live at Brent Cross 2012 with the tres cute Mel Clarke, and further delving into the mag will reveal Terry’s trick DogLondon Sheene-rep Bandit, the AFT Customs CB750F (hand-built by glamour models, donchaknow?), Gary’s mentalist turbo Bandit, the Street Beast Cycles Texan Three-Way (feat. Chipmunk) and yet more feature bikes too exciting to list in case your eyes fall out in sheer excitement.
Of course it’s the end of the racing season (boo!) so we’ve also got the full, nailbiting story on Spondon GSX-R-mounted Beany’s final round in the Bemsee Thunderbike Xtreme series, as he dragged third place, kicking and screaming, over the finish line by the scruff of its neck, as well as all the exciting coverage from the Straightliners and ACU Nationals finals too.
Combine that hand-carved slab of high-performance, modified motorcycling awesomeness with our usual dainty garnish of relevant news stories, product information and reviews, regular toons from Vizman and Andy Sparrow, Fanmail submissions from you lot and project build updates from Yantosh and MDM, and we just don’t know how we do it each month, we really don’t.
Streetfighters #227 – on sale 6/12/12. Merry fuckin’ something.
