    American Iron is an excellent magazine in many respects; it is interesting, informative, good looking, and slick overall. There is, however, one major caveat: the new bike reviews have shockingly little content. The text should be doubled in length at least and contain substantive material. We’d like to know in some greater detail about the brakes, the handling, the low RPM performance, the clutch engagement qualities, etc. I realize that this magazine cannot devote 10 pages to a review. Yet, some greater depth is sorely needed here. Overall, the magazine is to be very highly recommended.
