About SportBikePlanet

Hi, my name’s Mark…

I’m a regular guy from Australia, I follow Formula 1, I’m a gym-rat, I hold a commercial pilots licence, and I also like creating online content which I’ve done for many years.

However… despite all of the awesome experiences I’ve managed to pack into life very little comes close to that fine September day in 2020 when I took the plunge and passed the final road test to get my motorcycle licence, and to say life has never been the same is a gross understatement!

But Covid19 made finding my first bike a nightmare…

The entire planet had shut down and no new stock was arriving from anywhere… in Australia at least, people had spare time and spare cash, so every secondhand bike was being snapped up at stupid prices… but eventually I found my baby, a 2018 KRT Ninja 650, and it was, and is, absolutely epic.

Emily is passionate about all things two wheels, sometimes three and four if it is a classic BMW.

If she isn’t riding or planning out a build, she spends her days writing about them and illustrating them for her clients.

Emily is obsessed with all things Ducati and Bimota, craving the exotic Italian machines that were either directly designed by or heavily influenced by Massimo Tamburini.

If it isn’t something motorcycle related, she loves to spend her time badly beating around on an old guitar.

Steve is a lifelong motorcycle rider and third generation racer that grew up in his grandfather’s Honda Yamaha dealership. Coming from a flat tracking family, he didn’t know you could turn any direction but left on a motorcycle until he was 10 years old, but would later travel the country as a journeyman professional motocrosser.

Along the way, he dabbled in AMA, WERA and other roadracing events, along with supermoto, and has put a knee down everywhere from Road Atlanta to Road America to Willow Springs to Buttonwillow.

A former editor of Wide Open, Motorcycle Product News, and WaterCraft World among other magazines, he has also contributed many articles to a variety of motorcycle periodicals and websites.
