Best Motorcycle Products of
3, 2008 - Here we are -- another year bites the
dust, which means that it's time once again for the
webBikeWorld Motorcycle Product of the Year awards!
It's become a New Year's tradition to pick our
favorite motorcycle products and accessories from all of
the interesting gear we reviewed in the prior year.
Motorcyclists are a pretty lucky lot, because the
manufacturers are continually releasing a huge number of
new and exciting products that combine technology with
function to help make our sport safer and more
So our annual awards are designed to give kudos to
those products which, in our opinion, are distinguished
from the competition by offering the best features and
functionality with the best value in their class.
The categories change from year to year, depending upon
the products we've reviewed.
2008 marks the beginning of our 8th year of
operations. Pumping out 3-5 motorcycle product
reviews each week is an enormous task -- each review
takes several weeks of evaluation; hours in the photo
studio and a lot of time spent post-processing, writing, editing and more.
We also started producing our own videos in 2007, which
adds even more time and effort to each review.
But it's all worthwhile when we see how many of you
visit the site each day from over 144 countries around
Note also that we have started a new affiliate
venture in 2008 with a few selected online motorcycle
retailers, so we hope you'll use our affiliate links to
their websites when you buy
your gear -- like
this one to the
Motorcycle Superstore one of the largest motorcycle discount retailers in the
Your support will help us continue to bring you even more of the best and most detailed
motorcycle product reviews in the world.
Supporting webBikeWorld also means that we can
continue to support
favorite charities. We're very proud of this
program and thankful for our ability to help others -- we've donated over $25,000.00 to charities so far!
Thanks also to our
many contributors in 2007 and the wonderful articles
they've submitted, including Chris B., H.B.C., Joe from
Dallas, Kim, Lori, Shawn Cochran, "Burn", Bill C., the
Mad Dog and many more. They've added to the
richness and variety of our community.
And don't forget that we'll get a peek at the latest
and greatest products for 2008 during our annual trek to
the Dealer Powersports Expo in Indianapolis in February,
so stay tuned for the webBikeWorld live reports from
From all of us to all of you, best wishes for a
healthy and prosperous 2008!
