Default Sportster Magazines?

Are there any magazines that focus on Sportsters. Most bike mags have the cruisers/tourers for most of the pages. Looking for ideas and information.

Thanks

Nope. No Sportster focused magazines. That's why us Sporty drivers all hang out here. This is the online Sportster magazine.

Sportster choppers and bobbers are regularly featured in The Horse and Cycle Source. American Iron has a section devoted to Sportsters each month.

in the mid nineties American Iron tried to make a go of it with HotXL and they only made it a year. That is it for the sporty magazines.

Hot XL was a good magazine. To bad it didn't make it.

American Iron has an article every issue, and features Sportster based bikes. The others listed are good also.
