There’ve been some changes at Canada Moto Guide over the last few months, and some new writers and contributors.
To help you keep track of who’s who and who claims to do what, here’s the list of us all so far, as well as easily-clickable contact information.
These are the regulars, but we routinely publish stories and photography from freelancers and just people who like to ride motorcycles and appreciate motorcycles and who have a story to tell, from Canada and all over the world.
The list is always open, though we are kinda picky. If you want to contribute too, or just tell us about a great ride (or a truly awful ride), send us a note.
Editor and Grand Poobah
In charge of all things Editorial, which means he sits around and thinks about motorcycles, a lot. He lives in Cobourg, Ontario, and rides a Harley Low Rider. One day, he’ll fix the Suzuki DR600 in his garage and go exploring all those roads that discourage cars on them. One day.
Managing Editor and Urban Hipster
When he isn’t drinking local IPAs, listening to classic outlaw country records or exploring independent vintage shops, Dustin wrenches on an old 1984 Yamaha Maxim 750 – his first motorcycle recently purchased back from the guy he sold it to years ago. Good luck with that, Dustin.
News Editor and Guinea Pig
Zac earned his job by crashing the CMG Konker in 2010, proving he was one of the sad few afflicted by the CMG curse. Originally from PEI, he now lives down by the river just outside Saint John, New Brunswick, with a collection of tattered Hunter S. Thompson paperbacks.
Montreal correspondent and lucky bastard
Costa’s had quite the moto journalistic career. Working first for CMG, then Cycle Canada and Motorcycle Mojo magazines and now back to CMG, Costa is one of the best there is in Canadian moto-journalism and contributes test bike features and product launches. He lives in Montreal.
Winnipeg correspondent and dirty biker
We’re a bit scared of Willy, who has no hair and no neck and wears a lot of black leather and rides a Harley. He writes about his adventures in Winnipeg for CMG, but has a full-time job as the autos editor of the Winnipeg Free Press and is the host of his own TV show, Willy’s Garage, on APTN.
Touring columnist and famous author
Jeremy lives in Canmore, Alta., but gets out as much as he can on his crappy old KLR. He’s written books about his bike travels through Central America (Motorcycle Therapy), Europe and the Middle East (Through Dust and Darkness), and he’s always planning The Next Big Trip.
Bike tester and daredevil
Jeff lives somewhere down on the Niagara Peninsula and we force him to test ride fabulous motorcycles for CMG. He also tests cars for various automotive publications, and works as a producer and photographer for a Hamilton-based video production company. Sometimes, he remembers to focus.
Bike tester and man about town
Dean’s day job keeps him busy running his own industrial design company, but he much prefers riding motorcycles. The first press bike he ever reviewed for CMG was the 2018 Suzuki GSX-R1000R and he didn’t crash it, so we figured that was a good start.
Newbie and wannabe
Matt doesn’t know much about bikes and only just got his basic licence, but he reminds us what it’s like to be getting into this passion. He’s decided he loves bikes but he’s a car guy really, and reviews exotic machinery for The Globe and Mail. We don’t hold that against him. Much.
