- Read and write the English language at a level sufficient to get your point across without making us spend all day editing it.
- Write at a level that would not cause your articles to be confused with something one might find in an ATV, Monster Truck, or WWE magazine.
- Operate a standard motorcycle in a semi-responsible manner without crashing.
- Possess the skills (or at least the aptitude to learn) to operate a motorcycle in close proximity to other riders/equipment at elevated speeds.

- Possess a reliable truck sufficient for the pick-up and delivery of two full-sized motorcycles. (Tacoma, Colorado, Frontier, or larger)
- Do all of the above for modest compensation while residing in one of the most expensive places on earth (Southern California).
- Work as a trusted member in a team of highly experienced motorcycle experts who are frequently cranky, sarcastic and occasionally caustic… without losing your sense of humor.
