Welcome all to my humble motorcycle website OTBW. My name is Curtis Smith and I’m a motorbike tragic. I’m an Australian currently based in Central Illinois, USA.
I started riding dirt bikes when I was young and have been an addict ever since. In recent years I have moved onto the road and track, but I’m always keen to hit the dirt.
Why did I start this website? Well, I live and breathe motorcycles and think I have an opinion worth voicing. I believe I can bring a level of honesty that few others can’t. While I have have my little favourites (*cough* Aprilia), I am not one eyed and I hope this comes out in my writing and videos. If somethings no good, I’ll say as much. Same for if its average or great.
If you’re new to the site I recommend reading ‘The Curtis Files – Used Bike Reviews.’ They tell a story of my motorcycle ownership so far and are at their best if you read them in order. Besides that, go through all the tabs and have a browse. I have also made the leap into YouTube so make sure you check out my videos there.
Feel free to add me on Facebook and Instagram. I regularly share content on those pages that I don’t on my website. The links are at the top right of the page.
If you wish to contact me for anything business related (freelance writing, product reviews etc), simply fill in the details below and I will get back to you as soon as possible. You can also contact me via social media.
