I won't read the digital version any less than I did the printed version.  It's just a company advertiser.

Years ago I read this.  Will not bother with any online edition, cannot recall the last time I read anything of interest in the Enthusiast.  Expensive advertising copy, & HD is eliminating almost all the printing cost.

I wish HOG would have continued the road atlases.  Sure, with GPS units everywhere they too had become redundant and I understand the expense argument.  But a decent paper atlas you can take with you or help plan from is nice to have and a complement to the GPS.  That's the one thing from HOG I ever took advantage of.

HOG magazines were never Easy Riders, but they used to have articles that were readable.  I like the road atlases & still carry 1 even though it's outdated.  There are places a cell phone doesn't work & there are times when it is nice to sit down & look at a real map instead of a tiny GPS screen.

You and me both.... I would put the new one on the bike and put last years in the car. It was nice when travelling in the car if I wanted to know/check out a "stealership" in my travels.

I liked the atlas.  Once in a while the Enthusiast had a decent article or imformation about HOG events. 

I would rather it not be digital, as I won't remember to look for it.  Print I can scan it and see what I need to know

They should have given the option to those that wanted the magazine and atlas. For those that got the life membership back in the day that's what we signed up and paid for.
