does anyone think it would be a problem if we scanned Battle2win and posted some issues here?
legally, im not sure if copyright law covers a defunct magazine of if reg kittrelle and the gang would even mind.
ive got quite a few issues, (have to dig, put in order, and count em up to see how many)
i also have the american thunderbike clubs weather report from the volume 1 issue 1 through vol 4 issue 1. 1998-2001
anyone have any ideas?

I'm not a copyright attorney, so I'm for it.

Jason sounds Good ! It has been done. But don,t know if Legal ? Hope it is possible!

Sounds like a great idea to me.
I'd suggest that you contact Reg and Blake and ask them if they have a problem with it.

Precisely what I was thinking . . . I doubt Reg would have a problem but it would certainly be a nice courtesy to extend.
The was such a great time and such a great magazine . . . Reg has an amazing talent.

I emailed all involved and Reg said he was cool with scanning and posting them here on badweb...
ill get some time hopefully soon and start scanning the copies i have.
anyone else wanna scan n post some copies?
ill post a list of which ones i have asap...
|Posted on Friday, April 08, 2011 - 11:40 pm: ||
i have every one, but they are stored away
|Posted on Saturday, April 09, 2011 - 12:43 pm: ||
If they are stored away and you aren't willing to unearth them, why bother announcing ownership?
|Posted on Sunday, April 10, 2011 - 11:56 am: ||
Sounds like a good idea to make it a group effort.
I have a pretty good selection so I can help.
I think we should come up with a common format though.
Obviously PDF format but we should decide on the scanning format. DPI, etc..

just that i would be willing to assist, but unable to very easily. sorry i offended you!
not so fun it seems!!!
|Posted on Sunday, April 10, 2011 - 03:40 pm: ||

Ill make list of which issues I have n will scan this evening...

As for format, when I was scanning for the “exhaust shootout” thread (http://www.badweatherbikers.com/buell/messages/476 23/622058.html?1302312301), I found that .jpg photo format preserved pages with imbedded text on photos much better than .pdf files. Photo jpg files are also easier to share via Photobucket too.
I always thought I had more issues than I do, but this is what I have to offer.
Vol.1 Issue 1 (1996)
Vol.1 Issue 2 (1996)
Vol.1 Issue 4 (1997)
Vol.2 Issue 1 (1998)
Vol.2 Issue 2 (1998)
Vol.2 Issue 3 (1998)
Vol.2 Issue 4 (1999)
Vol.3 Issue 1 (1999)
Vol.3 Issue 2 (1999)
Vol.3 Issue 3 (2000)
Vol.3 Issue 4 (2000)
Vol.4 Issue 1 (2000)
Let me know and I’ll start scanning.

Did the scanning project ever come to fruition? I was going through an old box of magazines yesterday and found all the issues except Vol 1 Issue 1. I do have Issues 14 and 15 from 2002 also, which were newspaper size. 10.5" X 14.5".

I got the OK to scan and post the magazines but haven't had the time to scan them. My scanner went south and I didn't replace it.
I still mean to do it eventually but if someone else has the resources, please feel free to scan away...
I'm sure I can make room on my site for the files...
