Mike Armitage

Editor, Bike Magazine

Mike trained as a mechanical engineer (got qualifications and everything) and understands how oily bits work.

He’s been a full-time motorcycle journalist since 2001, with roles including road test editor on Performance Bikes and executive editor for Classic Bike. He’s currently editor for our sister publication Bike – but occasionally still contributes to MCN.

Over the years he’s ridden everything from tank-shift 1920s pioneer bikes to Honda NR750, Kawasaki H2R and championship-winning race bikes. The owner of a 1973 Honda C50, 1990 Yamaha TDR250, 2006 Royal Enfield Bullet Electra and a small collection of MZ parts, he’s also a rubbish drummer.
