One of the things we do here quite often at Alliance, on a regular basis, is update each other as to what is coming up in the next few issues of the magazine. It makes everybody get along. But I just realized that we never update YOU as to what we have coming up. So here it is: Now that the season has passed us by again, we are moving into our bi-monthly issues. I know, it sucks. But the balance is applied in the great issues we have coming up. First, you will be receiving (in a few short weeks) our annual photo issue. This one is the best one I have ever worked on, so you have that to look forward to. Also in that issue is our annual Rider of the Year award. I’m not going to tell you who, but I’ll give ou a little hint: eagles.

Now, after the Photo Annual we move right into the 2007 Gear Guide, which will be out in time for you to do a little Christmas shopping. There are also going to be some pretty fun articles in there, including a mental journey to China and our first ever formal event. I don’t want to spill all the beans, but here’s another little hint: pancakes. Got it? Good. I’m here if you need me.
