Bob Greene assembled a staff, some from in-house at Petersen and some from outside. I moved from my other duties and was joined by Dale Boller, Carol Sims and ace Hot Rod photographer Eric Rickman. Later, we'd be joined by famed off-roader Dave Ekins and John Weed, the former editor of Motorcycle Weekly, a newspaper then competing with Cycle News. It was quite a group, and a wonderful place to work, bustling with camaraderie, wit and humor. We produced stories both technical and educational, with "how-to-ride" features from people like Malcolm Smith and Al Gunter. I did road tests on factory racebikes like the Daytona Harleys, Triumphs and Suzukis, lent to us since they had confidence that I'd never throw one down the road. I never did! I enjoyed every minute.
