Like most of the best happenings in his life, Evans stumbled into his motojournalism career. While on his way to a planned life in academia, he applied for a job at a motorcycle magazine, thinking he’d get the opportunity to write some freelance articles. Instead, he was offered a full-time job in which he discovered he could actually get paid to ride other people’s motorcycles – and he’s never looked back. Over the 25 years he’s been in the motorcycle industry, Evans has written two books, 101 Sportbike Performance Projects and How to Modify Your Metric Cruiser, and has ridden just about every production motorcycle manufactured. Evans has a deep love of motorcycles and believes they are a force for good in the world.

    I thought BMW announced six products today and that Kymco presented an all-electric motorbike. Was that incorrect?

    Since Trizzle is (rightfully) such a fan of mini bikes, I am surprised not to read of the CB125M and CB125X here - surprised and disappointed.

    Then there's KTM's 690 SMC. Why no mention of that?

    Surprised and disappointed.
