About Us – Northwest Edition

Quick Throttle® Northwest
P.O. Box 2241 • Port Orchard, WA 98366


Quick Throttle® is a FREE monthly magazine that focuses on all aspects of the motorcycle riding community; covering local stories and related events. We’d like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves. We established the magazine in 2001 to encompass news and events for the local riding community—which until now has been completely overlooked by the publishing media. At an average distribution of nearly 150,000 copies per month, we attribute this phenomenal success to the careful consideration we have given to our distribution points. These include virtually every motorcycle dealer, cycle shop and motorcycle business in our distribution area, as well as a variety of restaurants, taverns, tattoo parlors, insurance companies, motorcycle organizations, sporting goods stores—over 3500 locations. Places that we know motorcyclists are apt to be found, you’ll find us! We anticipate increasing both circulation and distribution as the magazine’s popularity grows, benefiting both our readers and our advertisers.

Our experienced full time staff covers local and national stories, issues, events and features. Additionally, our knowledgeable staff of contributing writers and photographers have built this publication into a preferred source of information and entertainment for the riding community. We also thank our advertisers on a regular basis for investing in a publication that provides a forum for local riders, as well as the most accurate and comprehensive events calendars for each region.
