Our Story:

It’s the thrill of the open road, that unforgettable stretch of pavement where every corner bends at just the right angle and you never miss a gear. The wonder of city lights twinkling in the distance as you look out from the edge of the hotel’s infinity spa pool, cold drink in hand, mist rising from the surface of the water. Or the joy of a long awaited road trip with your best friend, saddlebags packed and that unmistakable exhaust note of a potent V-twin engine exploding off nearby mountain walls. This is what VICARIOUS is all about!

Our goal has always been to publish a full-colour, high-gloss, one-of-a-kind print magazine of our very own, something our readers would be proud to own and want to share with their family and friends. Together with our digital flip magazine and website, it will deliver a truly vicarious emotional experience.

The Opportunity:

To launch a new print magazine requires a great deal of time, talent and money. Your support will help pay our writers and photographers, the layout and design team, editing, printing, distribution and the marketing of VICARIOUS. We are committed to printing on paper that is 100% environmentally responsible and Eco-friendly. That means it will cost a little more to produce our print magazine, but the investment is well worth it.

Direct funding allows us to cover all of the expenses associated with publishing an exceptional print magazine while keeping control of the editorial content and involving you in the process. With our unique funding levels, we offer several ways for you to help us launch VICARIOUS in print while earning a significant return on your investment and enjoying some great perks.
