Who is he?
Started riding relatively late in life, after a pillion ride on a Yamaha FZR1000 EXUP in '96. Since then he’s owned three Honda CBR600s, two Ducati Monsters, four dirt bikes (including a Honda CRM250 and Yamaha WR250), a Honda Vision 50, a Honda Dominator and a super-moto pit bike. Now its a KTM 1050 Adventure and a Yamaha XSR700.
Worked in publishing since 1995, the majority of which has been in motorcycling. A self-confessed geek, he’ll find things to tinker with in the garage just as an excuse to get the spanners out. John’s more than a little obsessed with product testing, firmly believing that whether kit costs £1 or £1000, bikers should be able to read the most thorough and honest reviews possible. Enjoys track time but lacks the competitive spirit to want to race. Finds bumpy, twisty back roads more fun than smooth, fast sweepers.
