Why still paper?
Why not move it online with a pod-cast like youtube channel where you discuss the topics in person?
And allow folks to join the stream on a monthly basis where you can interact with your viewers?

The alternative will be an ever-increasing magazine price

A lot of out ‘old school’ giys prefer paper but it is changing and maybe dying slowly


I love a real magazine, which you can take and read in your hammock, on the beach or wherever.

Die volhoubaarheid daarvan hang af wie die redakteur is.    :pot:     




No pressure for LS. :imaposer:

I did not realise he is the editor.    He is a true adventure rider. It will be interesting to see how he keeps the interest of  the twat suite , leatt wearing, empty panniers on bike, R& P Covid posting, "buga mina" type rider,  that rarely goes offroad with their bikes.

I think the mag will actually cater for them :imaposer:

Paper makes for a long feedback cycle (knowing what your readers want)
By the time it's 'hot off the press', it's old news already

Once I've read the magazine, it's read.
It's not like an old stroker mag from the 90's where ... well you know.. >:D

I can enjoy a story book on a kindle. But anything with pics or graphs or tables (ie magazines and text books) has to be the real thing.That reminds me I should update my Recently read list

Well done  :thumleft:

I guessed it was LS, but WEG is not in my language range.  :biggrin:

Also in English, just for you!

Is this a once-off, or monthly magazine ?

Currently a yearly publication, but I'm pushing for twice a year.
Ideally a quarterly mag, so that the quality doesn't suffer, and that readers don't get fatigued by a monthly mag

Hopelik is dit 'n sukses en volhoubaar, anders as die voriges wat probeer het. Die prys en inhoud sal bepaal

Ek het ongelukkig geen beheer oor die prys nie. Elke redakteur by Media24 veg 'n verbete stryd vir 'n lae prys want hulle weet dit beinvloed verkope. Jy kry boonop nie hoër salaris vir 'n duurder produk nie.
Dis maar die aard van die bedryf. Al wat ek kan doen is om my bes te lewer sodat die inhoud vergoed vir die prys

Can anything be written and published in Afrikaans about DS bikes without some Deon Meyer thing?


And if I have it right, he does not ride anymore?

Deon Meyer no longer rides. But he misses it.

Magazines cannot compete with digital when it comes to news and current issues. This magazine won't try to sell you stuff. It deliberately doesn't contain a single advert - though there are two promotional pages for other magazines that you might like.
What it does better is curate the best content and deliver it in a satisfying, tactile and highly portable package
It also has a strong human element behind it that isn't always prevalent on websites

And it does not have a battery going flat when you're reading lekker. :deal:

All the best with this venture, LS.

I dont mind the adverts. Maybe make the adverts bike related and place them all in the back. People are constantly asking whete can I buy this in Pta, where can I service my bike in Durban etc. Would be nice to have a bike specific yellow page section in the back so to speak
