Michael Thomas is a writer for Motor & Wheels who writes about cruisers, cafes, sportbikes, baggers, choppers— all things motorcycle.

My Career as a Moto-Writer

I’ve been writing since I was scribbling, and I’ve been hanging around motorcycles and motorcycle people for just under two decades.

I had a moto- mechanic roommate who fabbed custom bikes. Our garage was a shop, and he taught me what it takes to make motorcycles tick. 

In addition to the many Harley’s and Honda’s I had regular access to back then, I’ve owned a Triumph Bonneville and an Indian Scout. Over the past three years, I’ve put 54,000 miles on a 2018 Indian Chieftain Limited riding around the country, freelance writing from myriad cool cafes.

As far as bikes go, I’ve written articles, blogs, captions, and descriptions of every type of bike under the sun and have edited and fact-checked articles for various motorcycle blogs.

I came to Motor & Wheels as an editor, but motorcycle people tend to click up, and we got along so well that I decided to hang around and do what I do—write about bikes!
