Meet motorcycle artist Rich Lee in the September issue of ‘American Motorcyclist’

Meet motorcycle artist Rich Lee, learn what AMA member John L. Stein has discovered in 50 years of riding, and get the inside scoop on what is happening in your state motorcycle-wise in the September 2020 issue of American Motorcyclist magazine.

From black-and-white line illustrations to full-color realistic-looking drawings of some of the coolest motorcycles and motorcyclists on the planet, Lee has shared is vision of motorcycling for riders to enjoy. He has drawn MotoGP riders Marc Marquez, Fabio Quartararo, Maverick Vinales and others for Dorna; the Suzuki GSX-R sportbike for the bike’s visual history “30 Years of Performance” and even draw the cover of the September 2020 issue of American Motorcyclist.

Lee began drawing as a third-grader graduated from college with a fine arts degree in 2003 and now does most of his work on computer.

Stein, meanwhile, has learned a lot over the years about riding since he first threw a leg over a red 1967 Honda CL90. Among the things he has learned: intersections pose danger, determining traction is very important, momentum is your friend, the more you can do yourself the better, learn to suffer and more.
