Editor Steve Lita
Starting in an entry-level position as assistant editor for TAM Communications’ publications RoadBike and American Iron Magazine in 2004, Steve Lita worked his way up the editorial ladder to finally become editor of RoadBike magazine in 2007, and now at Motorcycle. “I have an almost complete family tree of TAM business cards,” quips Steve. He served as managing editor of a TAM newsstand special edition, and associate, managing, and technical editor of RoadBike before accepting the challenge of the editor’s role.
Steve, who has previously worked for the Skip Barber Racing School, Holley Performance Products, and Accel Ignition, is an avid motorcycle enthusiast whose technical know-how has been, and will continue to be invaluable to Motorcycle.
“It’s a thrill to take the lead as we forge ahead to make Motorcycle a leader on the newsstand,” Steve said. “I look forward to working with the Motorcycle staff of artists and editors to make our magazine the sourcebook for real-world motorcycle enthusiasts.” A resident of New Haven, Connecticut, Steve is an MSF-trained Ridercoach for the CT Riders Education Program. When he’s not riding or teaching new riders, he can be found wrenching on his muscle car or his collection of more than 10 bikes.

When Trish started at TAM Communications in 1999, she had been riding for only a few years, and had just purchased her second bike, a 1999 Honda Shadow ACE 750 Deluxe. Trish admits, “I know how lucky I am. I get to spend my days combining two of my favorite things: art and motorcycles.”
Trish grew up with a love for motorcycles. When she was 16, her dad got the Honda CB750 that he always wanted. “I’d sit on the bike in the garage and fantasize about one day riding it myself,” she says. At age 24, Trish graduated from FIT in New York with a degree in graphic design, and moved from Manhattan to Danbury, Connecticut. She signed up for the MSF Beginning Riders Course right away. “Riding motorcycles came naturally to me, and I ran out and bought my first bike, a 1984 Honda Shadow 500. I’ve been a diehard ever since, taking every opportunity to get out and ride.” Trish became a MSF RiderCoach in 2008, and has been teaching motorcycle safety in her spare time ever since.
At the office, she spends most of her time in front of the Mac, opening, checking, converting, and retouching all the images you see in the mag. “I get to play with type, colors, and layouts. I bounce ideas for photo shoots off my cohorts, and spend most of my time thinking up new creative ideas — some are good, and some are not-so-good,” Trish admits. Facing numerous challenges along the way, such as impossible deadlines, numerous staff changes, industry lows and highs, editorial meetings, redesigns, and the change from Motorcycle Tour & Cruiser to RoadBike and now to Motorcycle, she declares, “Every time a new issue lands on my desk, it’s my new favorite.”
Passionate about motorcycling, writing, photography, and design, Trish’s contributions to Motorcycle are evident on every page.
