Editor of VMX Magazine
Ken Smith spent his teenage years riding dirt bikes, while lusting after a Hodaka. Years later, Ken's continued love affair with motorcycles developed into a professional association as a freelance writer for motorcycle magazines. In 2004, his passions for vintage bikes and writing led him to become editor and part-owner of VMX Magazine, the world's leading publication covering the vintage and classic dirt bike scene. That position took Ken to Hodaka Days in Athena, Oregon. With the help of Paul Stannard of Strictly Hodaka and many of the staff from the PABATCO company, Ken wrote Hodaka Motorcycles. Ken resides in Sydney, Australia with his faimly—Frances, Adam and Amy. And, yes, there is finally a Hodaka in Ken's garage--a nice shiny Wombat.
