Peter Egan's Leanings one and two are great motorcycle reading. Each story is about 10 minutes long in case you are stuck somewhere for that length of time and need something to read.

+1 on Egan...hard to go wrong there.

I occasionally pick up a copy of Motorcycle Classics, used to have a subscription but let it lapse (may have to reconsider that).

It is very well written/shot. I also like how they delve into not-so-old bikes on occasion.

Head over to Iron and Air and get yourself a subscription. Those guys are doing some great stuff

Walneck's Classic Cycle Trader is another good one. The bikes for sale are fun, and I like that they reprint original road tests from back in the day.
