My first magazine article published this AM

Post by Rekd » Fri Apr 13, 2007 6:23 am

I am officially a Freelance Writer for ATV Source Magazine (They call me a "Journalist". :p )

My first article published this morning. It's a review of my quad, a 2007 Yamaha Raptor 700R SE. Read it and let me know what you think!

I'm contracted to do 2 articles per month for them. I'm so happy. :D

My brotheer has 2 and they ride great, very plush on the ride and not lacking power in any way:!: They are especially good for large people (my brother is close to 300 lbs). I will be getting one for my wife (for the soft suspension) but I prefer the snap of my YFZ and will be keeping that for me :D

Anybody want to buy a 2002 Honda 400EX (440 with cam) :lol:

Good, solid write-up Rekd. You answered the question about the "toppy" feeling experienced on earlier Raptors, by saying the 2" wider stance, keeps the 700 anchored and secure. Look forward to your series of articles. 8)

Well, I couldnt let her have a faster quad than me, right?

Nice article!

Well done! You should be proud of that well written article.

Writing an articulate story is not as easy as it looks.

(Although I did notice your liberal bias. :lol:)

If you are able, please post your next articles for us to read here too.
