    Default MCN Rant.....

    I think last weeks edition is probably the first that I have bought this year, now I understand why....

    Imagine my unbridled interest at seeing a HUGE, 4 page listing of Events and Dealer specials for 'Scotland & The North':



    Looks REALLY good eh?

    How would I be able to scan the text of FOUR FULL pages to make them available for everyone here and 'The North'...

    The cover actually turned out to be page 1 as well and seemed a little sparse of events:



    Not to worry, page 2 was bound to be FULL of treasures ???

    Better go to another post as the events take up SO MUCH SPACE.....

    Are you ready for it ???

















    SURE ????



    Yep thats it !!!

    FREE motorcycle news for anyone who can spot the events on the page.....

    Nevermind, onto page 3 (BOUND to be good eh?)


    .




    ..




    ...

    NOPE !



    Almost looks like an Advert for for MCN TV sales doesn't it



    Now, just wait for the FULL PAGE listing you are expecting on Page 4... yep it sure is:



    Full page for the Manchester bike show, which in fairness, I went to in 2012 and for a small show was really nice and intimate.

    But I counted 3 events from 4 pages of adverts, not quite what I was expecting.

    MCN is so bad these days I don't even bother to read it for free in the supermarket!

    Yes, usually following a drip feed of "exclusive" spy photos...

    Some of those old ideas aren't so bad, now it is too easy to pay or be scammed and have to pay anyway. Everything now is much more possible. Buying records from Brazil is easy and China is everyone's go to. For now at least.
