uring the early 1960s, Joe Parkhurst reacted to the state of motorcycle publishing and the market. Cycle World published its first issue in January 1962. Within a decade, Joe, who’d hocked everything and made the first issue on his kitchen table, owned lots more motorcycles, a Ferrari Daytona, and a big yacht. And he was having the time of his life making the best motorcycle magazine in the world. It’s 2018, and Cycle World is reacting to the state of publishing and the market as the media world has changed profoundly. While I don’t have any visions of fancy cars or big boats, we do plan to make this heavy-duty, high-quality quarterly CW the kind of beautiful, library-worthy print piece you’ll want to keep forever. Traditional stars like Kevin Cameron and Peter Egan along with new writers and photographers will help us explore with a new perspective the beauty and technology of the motorcycle inside and out.
