Modern Moto Magazine ISSUE No. 7 March 2018 - Page 5

Letter From The Editor If only I would have known more about motorcycles growing up, “I could have been a contender” racing against the greats on the GP circuit. Well, maybe not, but I sure like to imagine it every me I’m on a racetrack. I love street riding with all of my heart, but there is something about honing my skills and pushing my limits at a track day, now if it were an actual race … well, look out, Rossi and Marquez have nothing on me and my R3! In reality … I’m not fast at all. I’m not winning any races but the thrill and the comradery of a day at my local racetrack has had me hooked for years. So, in this issue, I’ve dedicated a few pages to road racing; I hope you don’t mind. I plan to do future special edi ons, too; for example, one focusing on adventure riding – if you have other ideas let me know. So, whether you’ve ever even watched a race, I think there is something for everyone here, plus we wouldn’t leave out your favorite insights and inspira on from our awesome staff writers! Lean in and enjoy! Meet the offi cial Modern Moto Magazine Race Bike! 2015 Yamaha YZF-R3 with lots of goodies - just ask me, I'll tell you all about it! ~ Ka e 5
