Readers come to Hell For Leather’s rescue

Dailies, Galleries -


Last night we were accused of surreptitiously obtaining an unreleased copy of Cycle World in order to enact some sort of dastardly plan to break the 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R’s embargo and pin it on someone else. The phrase “fell off the back of a truck” was actually used. Irked by this accusation, we posted a quick  request for help on Facebook at 1:20 am. Within minutes, we were flooded with images of the magazine on stands in Los Angeles. Thanks guys, this was a huge help. Here’s those images.

If you were one of the people who sent in a shot, and you’d like some swag in return, send an email to info at hellforleathermagazine dot com. We’d love to do something nice for you in return for helping us.

    HFL has some hottie readers, just saying.

  • GV_Goat

    So now we should see them flaming Ingrams for the f up?

    Ain’t gonna happen.

  • Baron Von Danger

    That is crazy that they tried to pin that on you guys. Don’t people know when you make a big stink about an issue, it just makes it worse.

    On a side note, I too am in L.A.
    And, for the lady pictured, single. Just saying.

    Wow, people actually like HFL enough to send pictures of Cycle World in at midnight? Actually, that’s not like, that’s love.

      This is surprising?

  • robotribe

    Take THAT!

    And yeah, she’s better looking than the ZX10R.

    • Random

      Which ZX10R?

    Photoshop is amazing… it actually looks like the magazine is on that magazine rack. What gave it away: girls. Girls who look like that don’t roam the streets in New York at that hour, and they certainly don’t read the Facebook pages of motorcycle blogs. You should have used the Scar Contest pics as the background.

    • Wes Siler

      Ha, all these were taken in LA actually. And you’d be surprised who trolls facebook looking for pictures of me :)

    Brilliant viral campaign by HFL and Cycle World to help CW sell more copies. Probably be their best-selling issue of the year. I look forward to more of these collaborations in the future. Well done!

      We consider ourselves philanthropists.

  • DoctorNine

    Who is this ‘Leather’ person, and why are all the readers going to Hell to rescue him?

  • Javanese

    Amazing… out of all the pics submitted by the readers on facebook only the hottie’s one were displayed. Guess my ugly mug wont come on this page soon even though it was snapped in front of a 2015 Hayabusa.

      I’m sorry, did you submit a picture that we didn’t include in the gallery above? I thought we got everyone’s.

  • thatguy

    they are at Barnes and Noble in Fargo, ND already too.

      Take a picture and email it to us! Make sure the picture shows some geo-centric location indicator. Free helmet if you do.
