ON “OPEN ROAD”
Affiliated club’s contributions to “OPEN ROAD” are welcomed. MAG called its magazine “OPEN ROAD” because it’s where we want to be. We have a club’s section in our magazine ‘OPEN ROAD’ and we want all clubs to feel that in “OPEN ROAD” you have a natural home. We are all about building a symbiotic relationship with clubs to promote our mutual interests and protect our lifestyle. Defending the freedom of the open road is what MAG is fundamentally about. MAG is an organisation going places for people going places. We don’t care what you ride or how long you’ve been riding, if you’ve got an appetite for freedom and adventure you’ll find kindred spirits sharing their lives with you between the covers of this magazine. If you want a magazine that informs, amuses, provokes and takes you places, a magazine that is always developing and responding to its readership’s ideas, get “OPEN ROAD”.
Affiliate clubs get a limited number of copies but affiliate members who trade up to full individual membership will get their copy of “OPEN ROAD” mailed to them bi-monthly. Whatever and wherever you ride you got to read “OPEN ROAD”.
