  • Sophia spent 13 good years editing high school essays. She thought it'd be fun to switch roles.
  • When she isn't speeding around on her latest travel mate, a 2013 Yamaha FZ8 she re-christened "Valentina," Sophia eagerly awaits for RideApart assignments. Turns out that being on a motorcycle is only most of the fun, the rest is discovering more about bikes, the awesome people who ride them and the amazing things we all do.
  • Sophia's greatest moto-achievement to date was enjoying a scorching day in Baja riding a long, winding road that was under construction—without wiping out! She loves to go off-road.

  • Todd’s spreading the gospel of motorcycles one spoke at a time.
  • He’s so close to getting a basket case Bultaco. Try and stop him.
  • Todd's the oldest member of the team, so stand up straight, stop mumbling, and get the hell off his lawn.
