Harley Baggers Magazine News

Harley magazine for motorcycle bagger riders

New magazine for Harley baggers? I know this is a site for classic motorcycles, but I also realize many of us with old bikes also own a newer Harley and some of them are baggers.

The crew of American Iron Magazine (including me) tested 2 issues of American Iron Motorcycle Bagger magazine on the newstand last year and both issues outsold all other motorcycle magazines except American Iron Magazine.

Based on this popularity we figure it is time for a new Harley magazine for the bagger crowd so we are bumping the frequency to bimonthly 6 issues a year) starting March 1, 2011.

You can get more info on Motorcycle Bagger at www.MotorcycleBagger.com and also subscribe if you wish. And yes, we will feature an occasional classic Harley bagger in the magazine. And you can visit the free forum to discuss Harley bagger issues by clicking the link.
