It's not getting any easier to make a living as a motorcycle journalist. Some of my peers have sold out and are now in the 'branded content' business. I'll be honest with you: I probably couldn't make a business of that kind of writing even if I wanted to, because I've been too outspoken for too long and by now I've alienated almost every OEM! Other writers have set up digital 'tip jars' on their web sites. I say, Patreon, schmatreon! If you want to reward me for writing, you deserve to get something for your money. Buy a book for your moto-shelf, or as a gift for your favorite biker who reads. Not sure if your friend reads? Well, does he poop? If so, he'll definitely love one of my Bathroom Books of Motorcycle Trivia.
Here's what Amazon customers have to say about my books...
On Motorcycles (16 reviews averaging 4.8/5 stars)
'Whyaduc' wrote, "Unfortunately, we are not blessed with an abundance of accomplished moto-journalists. Mark has a talent for telling a good story plus he has access to people and places that gives him a lot of information that the average motorcyclist does not have. Mark is an excellent writer with a passion for motorcycles. I hope that he keeps writing for a very long time. I loved this book!"
Riding Man (58 reviews averaging 4.7/5 stars)
'GeoUser' wrote, "A deep and wonderful read about the paradox between the high and almost holy achievement of competing at the Isle of Man, and the obvious dark side of instant serious injury or worse if you're not skillful enough, don't have an excellent memory, or the stars just didn't align for you. Anyone you loves motorcycles and the freedom they bring, and recognizes that exhilarating paradox even in ordinary riding, will love this book. For me it was cover-to-cover almost in one sitting."
