About the Author
Charles Everitt has been riding and working on motorcycles for nearly four decades. His first bike, a 1969 Bultaco, provided an excellent apprenticeship in all the things that could go wrong on a motorcycle.
While getting his journalism degree, Everitt worked as a line mechanic in a variety of motorcycle shops. After graduating, he spent 25 years, on staff or as a contributor, writing tech articles, road tests, features, and other stories for virtually every major street-bike magazine in the United States, including Cycle Guide, Cycle World, Cycle, Motorcyclist, Rider, American Roadracing, Sportbike, and others.
Although Everitt currently shares a hovel in Beverly Hills, California, with his wife Kathryn, he hastens to point out he most definitely is not rich.
