There's a new scooter magazine!

Post by AZScootRN » Tue Feb 26, 2019 7:17 pm

I have been waiting for a magazine, newsletter or anything that was written for me and my favorite kind of people - Scooter People! Scoot! magazine ceased to exist in 2013 and I got tired of waiting so I'm starting one myself: The Scooter 'Zine.
*My name is Howard and I've been riding scooters since 2008. I've owned at least 9 scooters, started a scooter club, been to Amerivespa, High Rollers and even ridden a Saddlesore 1000 on my Buddy 150. I've ridden with clubs in AZ, CA, NV and NM. My scooter has helped me make friends all over the country. I want to share my scooter passion and that of other riders with every rider who has a bit of time to read.
*Do you love to ride and enjoy meeting others who do, too? The Scooter 'Zine is for you.
*Do you look for exciting roads to ride or to share your favorites with others? The Scooter 'Zine is for you.
*Looking for reviews of gear with the scooterist in mind? The Scooter 'Zine is for you.
*Want to know more about scooter clubs? Who they are? What they do? You'll find out in The Scooter 'Zine.
The Scooter 'Zine will be a small magazine written by and for active scooter riders. Although everyone who loves scooters will enjoy the ‘zine, I am based in Arizona and have ridden in all the surrounding states of UT, CO, NM and west Texas, so riders, clubs and rides of those states will be the focus, at least as we get started.
Initially, The Scooter ‘Zine will be published bimonthly. If people like it and support it, we will make it bigger and more often. The Scooter ‘Zine also has a companion Facebook page. On it you will find color pictures, links and other supplemental material that just won’t work in printed format. You can also find us on Instagram: @scooter_zine
Subscriptions are just $20 a year. If you are interested and want a free sample copy, email me your address and I’ll get it in the mail to you.

Rather than reply to this post, please email me: howard@skyislandriders.com which can also use for PayPal for your subscription. If you prefer to use check or cash, let me know in your email and I’ll send you my address.

Keep on scootin’
Howard

Response has been quite favorable to date. We have mailed out almost 60 free copies that have gone to 16 different states! Our next issue is shaping up nicely. It is bigger, and better and we have 2 guest contributors.

There has been a couple of people ask if the 'zine would be available in digital format. We are still working on that, but I do have a link to the printer's version of it. The pages aren't in numerical order, but I think it still gives you an idea of what it looks like:

Ride safely out there
