Letter to The Reader's

January 30, 2018

Cycle Connections will be going through a “transitional” period, and as we do so, we will be loosing some of our contributing writers. We have enjoyed seeing things through their eyes for over 10 years, now we will be looking toward you the readers to share your bike adventures, benefit/fundraising efforts, Rally experiences etc.

You are already attending these events and no doubt taking some awesome pictures along the way. We would like for you to share that with us and EVERYONE else!

Also, we would like to help advertise your event in our “Upcoming Events” at NO charge to you, just drop us a note with the information.

If you are interested, or if you would like to submit event information, Please contact us at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We appreciate all of you for your interest in Cycle Connections and look forward to sharing in your up coming adventures!

Letter From the Editor

December 31, 2017

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I’m excited to start the New Year off with a big announcement! My business partner Dennis and I have decided to hand off the Cycle Connections baton to our good friends and longtime staff members Lynn Reynolds and Leigh Lilly. As many of you know, Lynn and Leigh have been with the magazine for years, and have covered numerous events for us in and around the Birmingham, Alabama area. Being down south also enables them to take advantage of pretty much year-round riding when it comes to event coverage. Super jealous!

Wisconsin: Winter Wonderland for Motorcyclists By Gary Ilminen March 9,2018 Reprinted by permission, Ultimate Motorcycling

March 30, 2018

Wisconsin has been called the Winter Wonderland. With good reason; you have to wonder what will happen next. In recent years, the weather has been more than a little unexpected at times, leaving us to wonder. Of course, we have long used the old saying, “Don’t like the weather? Wait five minutes—it’ll change.”
