Bike media legend Spannerman brings huge talent and expertise to the team.

One of the greats of Australian bike media and beyond, Spannerman, has signed on the dotted line here at INFO MOTO.

Spannerman has an unrivalled record of journalistic involvement within the bike media landscape. Cop this lot: Bike Australia, Two Wheels, Rider, Motorcycle Trader and a whole bunch more have all seen the great man’s talents.

Motorcycle Trader

He’s ridden everything, can build them from the ground up and has a style all his own when it comes to telling a yarn.

He’ll be regularly offering up his technical advice on the website as well as more expansive looks at motorcycle advice and fun along the way.

“From tea bags to telephones not connected by a cable, I have always been at the cutting edge of technology,” says Spannerman.

“Of course, I’m thrilled to be moving into INFO MOTO but I admit I’m a bit worried I’ll be electrocuted by using it.

“Regardless, I’m plunging into this brave new world.”

We also have some very big news coming your way in regard to our planning for the all-singing, all-dancing INFO MOTO video podcast. More of what you have come to love. Yep, Spannerman will be very active there.

So, we welcome Spannerman to the INFO MOTO fold. To think, it only cost us a case of cheap red…

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry.

Motorcycle Trader magazine discontinued

In March, Australian motorcycle magazine Motorcycle Trader announced its closure.

Motorcycle Trader launched in 1994 as a classified advertising publication and soon transitioned into a consumer title with workshop advice, gear and bike reviews and musings from some of Australia’s best automotive scribes.

The reason for Motorcycle Trader’s closure was due to the pandemic events which reduced the industry support required to maintain its high standard.

Shoulda subscribed a while back, but life’s been too busy. Spannerman is a welcome addition in my book, but as Grant Roff suggests… well, maybe it’s all reflective of the quality (or lack thereof) of the vino.
