In this issue of StarCruiser, Ben Harper presents his final installment of safe group riding. Blaine Chaisson regales us with his adventures during a nine-day, 5,000-km road trip from Upstate New York to Eastern Canada. Wayne Horlick's Gangster Road Star was selected as this issue's Star of the Month. As you can see from his long list of modifications, customizing is his passion. Yours truly reviews the AIRHAWK Motorcycle Cushion as an alternative to purchasing a third-party seat.

Finally, I would like to acknowledge the work of Larry Cohen, who peer-reviewed articles in this issue. The concept of "peer reviewing" is important to any newsletter, magazine, or journal. Volunteer peer reviewers enhance the accuracy and credibility of a publication by bringing their expertise in a particular subject to bear upon an article. Generally, commentary material--such as descriptions of road trips or the Star of the Month--do not require peer reviews, but any article that has technical content benefits greatly from an extra pair of eyes.
