That's right, it's been 15 years since the first issue of Inside Motorcycles came off the presses back in 1998. In the December issue (Vol. 16, Issue 09) we look back at some of the highlights of the past 15 years. For those that have been reading IM since the very start, it will bring back some fond memories; for new readers, it'll serve as a bit of a history lesson. You'll especially like our look back at the racing careers of our writers before they were, well, writers. And of course, the issue's full of our usual diverse two-wheeled content, so you'll surely want to pick this one up!

On the cover: the Triumph Tiger Explorer is certainly one of the buzz bikes of 2012 - Senior Editor Jason Thorpe puts it to the test, but will it live up to the hype? Andrew Nelson is also celebrated on the cover as a first-time MOPAR Canadian Superbike Championship race winner after many, many years of trying!
In addition to the Explorer, we also test the MV Agusta Brutale RR 1090 and the Yamaha YZF-R1. Of the naked, 156 hp Brutale, Editor-At-Large Costa Mouzouris comments that "everything about it says supersport in disguise," while Tech Editor John Sharrard considers the traction control-enhanced R1 "a quantum leap ahead of the first crossplane-crankshaft R1 that turned the engineering wold on its end when it was debuted in 2009."
