33 Years Behind Bars

Rider Magazine is one of the most influential motorcycle publications in the U.S. and we have their famed Editor-in-Chief here for a great night of stories about what goes on behind-the-scenes in motorcycle media. Mark has been Editor since 1989 and has decades of experiences with motorcycle tests that went wrong, rides that went surprisingly right, and everything in between. Rarely will you have such an opportunity to hear from-the-horses-mouth the REAL stories that go on that never make it to print.

Naturally, Mark is a life-long motorcyclist, starting at age 9, first in the dirt and later (when the state would allow it) on the street, where he now spends most of his time. Among his entertaining motorcycle media tales, he'll share his personal riding experiences that made him (and perhaps will make you) a better rider.

Mark long ago dreamed of working at a motorcycle magazine and studied English, journalism and motorcycle mechanics in college with the hope of someday landing a staff position when he became older and wiser. Rider preferred he start at age 24, however, and get his training on the job. Mark is a Charter Life member of the American Motorcyclist Association and received its first Excellence in Media award in 2004. In addition to scheduling and editing the monthly magazine’s content and managing its staff and contributors, Tuttle has written hundreds of feature stories and motorcycle road tests, tour reviews, buyers guides and editorial columns, and in the past has authored the magazine’s Tech Q&A column and technical features. He is a regular Featured Speaker at the country’s largest annual all-brand motorcycle rally and has ridden motorcycles extensively abroad as well as in 46 states in the USA. When he’s not riding, solo or with his wife Genie, Mark enjoys working on his small collection of motorcycles, photography, hanging out with son Alex, and camping, particularly by motorcycle. He is currently planning a trip that will take in the best roads in Hawaii, Oregon, Nebraska and North Dakota, though not necessarily in that order.
