Kev Raymond

Kev Raymond got his start in journalism in 1990 as a staff writer with Performance Bikes, and hasn't had a proper job since. He was Editor of What Bike? from 1994 to 2005, and has been involved with RiDE since its launch in 1995.

He thinks motorcycles should handle well, go fast, stop on a sixpence, and look good - in that order of priority. He doesn't much like modern electronic rider aids and he absolutely loathes loud exhausts. He lives in a crumbling French farmhouse with a barn full of old cars and bikes, few of which work properly.
