I have a bunch of magazines with motorcycles I own on the cover. V65 Magna, CX500, etc. Looking for a few back-issues with the SCR on the cover. Anybody know of some magazines from last year that have the SCR on the cover? Thanks!

Not sure if all of these are actual magazine covers. First one sure looks like it though.

Well, Inside Motorcycles is a canadian rag. Have to have a subscription to get back issues. Can't get a subscription unless you're Canukistani, so that's out.

City Bike is a free fanzine out of California. They just drop off copies to places in the San Francisco area. No way to get one of those, however the issue is available to view online. And if you're crafty with Chrome and the "inspect element" feature, you can download the pages that pertain to the SCR. But that's still not an actual issue of an actual magazine with an SCR950 on the cover :/

That is odd. They give you the choice to select USA in the mailing address for back orders, but then they don't allow for a choice of states. And you can't get any further without being able to pick a state. I emailed them with questions....

See attached response from Inside Motorcycles. Send them an e-mail and you will most likely get the same response.

And documented in the annals of SCR950 history....

I wonder how many were sold in Canada...quite a few I'll bet.

My back issue is on its way. My man David at Inside Track Publications located a nice clean copy and I bought it for $15 including shipping from Toronto.

Thanks for the idea Charles!

BTW, the CityBike article is a good read. The one reviewer talking about the "Dukes of Hazzard" theme playing through his head every time he rode it? That's how I feel about mine :)

I actually downloaded all of the relevant pages in high res (when you inspect element and find the jpeg files, you can change the filename to get a higher resolution). I'd post them here, but there is a resolution limit to images added to the forum, so that's not really useful if I have to resize them anyways. The high-res images print beautifully on 8.5 x 11 photo paper.

Also I snagged a copy of the canadian magazine myself. Cost me $15 with shipping to North Carolina.

I go way back with Max Klein one of the reviewers. He taught me car audio when I was just a kid. Ironically he got me to get out of cars and into a bike. His article sealed the deal in getting my SCR950.
