Realizing playing guitar awash in distortion was leading him nowhere, Greg Williams enrolled in Journalism. Instead of documenting the underground music scene, however, he took up writing about motorcycles.
Powered single-track machines fascinated him from an early age, and at 8 years old he terrorized the neighborhood aboard a mini bike powered by a derelict tiller engine. His first street bike was a crusty Triumph TR6R Tiger. After graduation he penned a freelance piece for The Classic Motor Cycle, and Greg hasn’t looked back since. Currently, he is a regular columnist for The Antique Motorcycle and Cycle Canada. Regular features appear monthly in American Iron and Motorcycle Classics, and he is the author of Prairie Dust, Motorcycles and a Typewriter—the story of J.B. Nicholson, and the motorcyclist’s bible, Modern Motorcycle Mechanics.
