Introduced to the world of motorcycling by my father at the tender age of four years old when I was hoisted onto the pillion seat of his Yamaha XS500, there was only ever going to be one outcome. A total addiction to all things two-wheeled.
By the time I was seven I had my own bike, a Yamaha TY80 which set me on my way to a twelve-year career as a trials rider, winning numerous schoolboy club championships and competing all over the country in the ACU National Championships.
The need for speed and the realisation that I was never going to be the world's best trials rider conspired to see to it that from now on, every spare penny I had would be spent on large, powerful road motorcycles and all the gear that goes with it. Magazines were bought to feed my addiction and before too long I genuinely believed that despite the fact that I was a car mechanic with no journalistic training, I could become a magazine Road Tester, much to the amusement of my friends and family.
At the end of 2001 after six months of writing, emailing and blatant pestering, I got a job as a staff writer on the then Chelsea-based Fast Bikes Magazine. I worked hard and swiftly progressed to Road Tester before promotion to Senior Road Tester in 2003 and finally, Road Test Editor in early 2004.
Being promoted to Road Test Editor made me so excited, that I immediately handed in my notice and decided to go it alone as a freelancer. Since then I have built up numerous clients and contacts in the motorcycle industry and have written for every major motorcycling title in the UK.
