Best Motorcycle Products of 2007
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 enjoyable.
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
But it's all worthwhile when we see how many of you visit
the site each day from over 144 countries around the world!
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 world.
Your support will help us continue to bring you even more
of the best and most detailed motorcycle product reviews in
Supporting webBikeWorld also means that we can continue to
support our 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 that show.
From all of us to all of you, best wishes for a healthy and

fills the entire tail light housing with dozens
