    I would be surprised if that letter gets published. It is too long and too technical. CW is looking for a short quick letter that can fit in a small space and is entertaining to their typical reader. But good luck, anyway. Perhaps they will edit the letter to conform to their space requirements.

    Perhaps. I'm more interested in whether they read it than if they publish it. We'll see.

    I have been writing letters to Cycle World off and on for the past 48 years and have yet to have one published. If they ever read my letters, I had no indication of it. The odd thing is that you seem to have more luck getting a letter published if you bash them for one of their articles and then threaten to cancel your subscription. Patting them on the back for doing a good job also helps to get a letter published.

    However, I have had a couple of letters published in Motorcyclist and a long one with photos in the British magazine Motorcycle Mechanics. It would be kind of interesting to know how many letters the monthly motorcycle magazines receive each month, how many of those letters actually get read and how many get published.

    I just got an email from CW saying "Mr P, what is your town, please, so we can run your letter in Hotshots?"
