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.
