About the Author

Mark Lindemann was an Associate Editor at the late, great Cycle magazine between 1982 and 1987, and has been in the motorcycle industry ever since. Proficient on both streetbikes and dirtbikes, his notes show he’s ridden over 750 machines on four continents, of which only a handful have actively tried to kill him. In 2012 he was the recipient of Cycle World’s prestigious Joe Parkhurst Award for embodying the spirit of the sport. In addition to his efforts at Cycle, his work has appeared in Cycle World, Motorcyclist, Supercycle, Garage, and Outrider Journal. Career highlights include outrunning a low-flying aircraft at Bonneville, a citation for riding at 134 miles per hour in a 25-mph zone, and being stitched together by a veterinarian after a streetbike crash. His garage is filled with more tools than should be allowed by law. Compared to his former fearless self, today he rides about as fast as an advancing tectonic plate.
