All good things must come to an end, my fellow MOrons, and it’s with a heavy heart that I tell you all that my time at Motorcycle.com is officially over. In fact, as these Top 10 lists are usually posted on Thursdays, my actual last day was yesterday. Nevertheless, it’s been a fantastic six-year run getting to ride motorcycles and telling you about it. I’ve enjoyed meeting readers and viewers, and am always humbled when someone says they’ve enjoyed a story I’ve written or a video I’ve been in. It truly is a gratifying experience, and one I never take for granted.

Alas, another opportunity within the motorcycle industry has come my way and it was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. I’m excited about the road ahead, but I should mention that I’ve often said it would take a lot for me to leave the world of moto-journalism, and that’s because this job really is special. For the past six years at MO, and 11 years total, I’ve pinched myself every day just as a reminder that I really am one of the luckiest people walking the planet to be able to do what I do – and get paid for it!

So thank you, MO readers, for taking this journey with me. It’s been a wild ride. One I’m glad I got to share with you. And with that, I’m going to take one last trip down memory lane and recall my 10 favorite moments at Motorcycle.com. Of course there are way more than 10 things I could have picked for this list, but you really don’t want to hear about all of them, do you? With the exception of the number 1 spot, the other nine are presented in no particular order.

  • Old MOron

    Darnit, this is why MO has a job opening.
    Always enjoyed your MOronic efforts, Trizzle.
    Best wishes.

  • Old MOron

    PS: you guys should’ve shopped in one of Troy’s pictures where he has the mutton chops.

  • Starmag

    Your pieces were great Troy, you’ll be missed. All the best in your new endeavors! As one of my teachers told me “once a MOron, always a MOron”. It might not have been a compliment in my case though…

  • spiff

    Did they offer you a CEO position? I can’t see any other reason to leave the MO kingdom. Btw, you must work out!

  • Jon Jones

    My best. Enjoyed your take on things.

  • IslandTosh

    I had a feeling it was Troy leaving; it’s a loss for us MO readers. I always enjoyed your work Troy.

    Best wishes for your future endeavors.

  • JWaller

    Best of luck to you. I’m sure we’ll still hear from you in the comments section at least, right?

  • DickRuble

    Buena suerte, amigo. Remember; if it ain’t broken, aftermarket parts won’t fix it.

  • John B.

    Thank you for all the great content you produced during your tenure with Motorcycle.com, and best wishes for success in your new endeavor. I am sure you will do great things in your new position.

  • Walter

    Best of luck with the new opportunity! I hope you enjoy it as much as you enjoyed your time at MO.

  • SerSamsquamsh
