I was introduced to motorcycles on the back of my father’s 1969 Honda CB750. My favorite childhood memories are riding two-up to Road America for the AMA Superbike Nationals in the early ‘80s—an event we still attend together today. I’ve owned everything from a ’72 Honda CL350 Scrambler to a 225-horsepower, nitrous-injected Kawasaki ZX-14 Ninja, though I’ve since downsized. Today my garage contains just my prized 1972 Moto Guzzi V7 Sport, alongside an endless rotation of magazine testbikes. I’ve roadraced everything from vintage Honda CB160s to 600s to a Harley-Davidson XR1200 in AMA Pro Racing competition, and I’ve done just enough supermoto and motocross racings to rack up a respectable collection of X-ray charts. I’ve had just as much fun riding a Suzuki GSX-R1000 around Phillip Island, Australia, as a Harley-Davidson chopper in Sturgis, but my favorite on-the-job experiences have without exception been riding legendary vintage race bikes like Kenny Roberts’ TZ750 flat-tracker, Cal Rayborn’s Harley-Davidson XR750TT and a genuine Vincent Black Lightning at Bonneville. If I’m not flying around the world to research and report stories, I’m probably back home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, pedaling a mountain bike or paddling a kayak with my wife Emily and daughters Kiva and Ruby.
