Just for a change, I thought I'd start with the cover and work forwards ... okay, so I'm really really pleased with the cover, and had to show someone!

That's the good news. The bad news, is that I'm deferring publication for a week because we're waiting for parts from the US for the long term Fat Bob, and we've not seen the Vision yet, due to technicalities with SVA and the revised lighting rig that will give it amber indicators that are far enough apart to satisfy VOSA's requirements.

But, I can tell you that we've got a couple of Street Bobs - a quickspin on the 2010 model and a heavily reworked former 88-incher - a roadtest on the XL883N Iron, a race report from Oulton Park's inaugural round of the Henderson XR1200 Trophy, an XR1200 Cafe Racer, a classic bitsa Bobber that'll make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, a quick round-up of three of the official dealer-based builders who are pushing the boundaries from within the Harley network, S&S upgrades, a hatful of disparate events and news, reviews, the Righteous Brothers and a host of other stuff.

Oh, and the announcement of sew-on patches and enamel metal pin-badges!

Can't wait?

Sadly you'll have to, but only for an extra week.

PS. The eagle eyed among you might have spotted that the small pics running across the bottom are from AmV39. Well done. What did you expect at this early stage?
