There is a slight disconnect between the cover and content of this issue. The front cover is a rootin'-tootin', stars and bars Ryan Quickfall illustration of AFT racer Cory Texter apple piein' his way to an all-American podium, but much of the content depicts Europe's current obsession with going left at a rate of knots.
We have a Yamaha XSR700 twin from Germany; Knight Honda RS600 replica from the Netherlands; the most gorgeous Trackmaster BSA A65 from the UK; a Yam RD350 YPVS short tracker, also from the Netherlands; a German photography portfolio; Belgian electric dirt tracker and a superlight Ducati twin from France.
Of course, we have US content too. Bryan Smith's experimental Howerton Indian FTR750; Cory T; Ryan Zahn, who races flat track, despite being born without arms (yes, really); a wild Sportster Hooligan; JJ's cabover Kenworth race hauler (what could be more American?); Trophy Queen and more.
