  1. In my January 2016 Issue pg 69 Eric Trow in his Stayin’ Safe column states that highway centerlines are painted with oil base paint. This is incorrect. I spent the last 25 years before retirement selling Highway Traffic Safety Equipment including highway striping paint. At least a dozen years ago it was Federally Mandated that only WATER based paint could be used on highways for centerlines, edge lines, stop bars, cross walks etc. The only place it is still legal to use an oil based paint is in a parking lot. He may be correct in that glass beads can prove slippery when crossed but the paint itself will not be slippery as it is mainly water with very few solids added to make it adhere to the road surface. It is a poor paint for the application and wears out quickly needing to be replaced yearly although some municipalities can’t afford that and paint every other year.

    Just an FYI

  2. We stuck a July issue in the mail to you on Friday, so you should receive that soon. It must have gotten hung up in the mail somehow since you received issues before and after that one. Sorry for the inconvenience. If you don’t receive the July issue by the end of the week, please let us know. Thanks!

  3. Sorry for the confusion Garry. There is information about how to change your address on our Contact Us page: http://ridermagazine.com/contact-us/#contact

  4. Just this minute finished Clement Salvadori’s book, “No Thru Road”. Unbelievable. Why did he wait so long to write this? I have many thoughts and questions after reading it, but I urge every Rider reader to buy a copy. From reading Rider, you have no idea of what a fascinating life Clement has lived. Please, another book soon? Fascinating man, too subdued outside of this book.

  5. Never thought that a motorcycle magazine could also be a classic literature source. Thanks to Clem’s article that included info on travel books I read Mark Twains “Innocents Abroad”. Although motorcycles hadn’t yet been invented in the 1860s Twain’s writings were both humorous and insightful – a great read!

  6. Just enjoying RIDER over coffee, (and a little coffee over my Rider), when I noticed Hwy 281 from Canada to Brownsville, Texas “Splitting the Country”, Oct, 2016. According to Bill Tipton’s map scale, the route would cover about 330 miles! Now that’s a trip I could reserve a weekend for! Chuckle!

  7. In your latest online newsletter, sent today, the item on the 2017 BMW K1600 B states “The rider sits in a typical feet-forward riding position.” From all text provided by BMW as well as photos of the bike, this is not true. The rider’s footpegs are positioned in a location identical to that on the K16GTL and in no way at a position anywhere near that of a “feet-forward” position. I believe that BMW will be offering an accessory package that will probably allow a secondary and more forward “highway peg” location (though whether it will differ markedly from what is currently available through a combination of engine guards and after-market highway pegs remains to be seen).

    If you know something I don’t in this regard, I look forward to hearing about it.

    • David,

      Turns out you’re right. BMW’s press materials for the K 1600 B are a little confusing, making it easy to mix up what’s standard/stock and what’s optional/accessory. Here’s the section of the press release we were referring to:

      “Comfortable foot rests for a “feet forward” position and optional exclusive forged wheels for individualisation.
      A wide range of Original BMW Motorrad Accessories and options available ex works means that nothing is left to be desired in terms of the individualisation of the new K 1600 B. This includes the provision of comfortable foot rests for the passenger, while these elements can also be fitted to offer the rider a particularly relaxed “feet forward” position. Redesigned forged wheels with eleven double spokes each further enhance the exclusivity of the new K 1600 B.”

      And later on, the press release says:
      “Foot rests for a relaxed “feet forward” position available as an option.
      As part of the new design, the new K 1600 B follows the bagger look by doing away with the storage compartments on the left and right in the lower part of the engine in the series configuration. This means that it is an easy matter to equip the bagger with extremely comfortable foot rests that allow the rider to adopt a “feet forward” position. However, the storage compartments are available as an ex works option.”

      So, yes, it appears that the feet-forward footpegs are optional. We’ll revise the story accordingly. Thanks for keeping us on our toes!

  8. Article “The Sisters’ Centennial Ride” Quotes that there are 500,000 homeless female veterans. This info is from the National Coalition for the Homeless website: Although flawless counts are impossible to come by – the transient nature of homeless populations presents a major difficulty – the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) estimates that 39,471 veterans are homeless on any given night.
    Can’t imagine where the 500K figure came from. Thank you, John Talbert, Air Force SMSGt Retired.

    • Final Salute, Inc., the charity that provided the 500k figure, released a white paper that documents where they came up with that number. You can read that white paper here:

  9. How can I acquire the “What to Take” list promised in the August 2015 article by the same name?
