Motorcycle Bloggers International is a group of 159 member sites that focus primarily on motorcycles or scooters. Each year, they release their awards, which recognize both greatness and serious lapses in judgment. After the members vote, those results are tallied and then the public gets a crack at it, too. The results are sometimes a bit surprising, but always interesting and worth a look. This year, the big winner for Best Motorcycle goes to Triumph for the Street Triple 675. Surprisingly, after sweeping the International Bike of the Year awards, Ducati's awesome new 1098 didn't even appear in the top three. Suzuki's new B-King managed to begrudgingly accept the award as Worst New Motorcycle, with Honda's latest CBR1000RR taking the tarnished silver medal. Read the complete listing of awards and non-awards here.

      Very interesting "Motorcycle bloggers International" 2008 best and worst motorcyles list. With the recent increase of oil/gas prices; I think many consumers are interested in riding motorcycles to work/leisure.

      (One day last week as I was driving, I spotted a new sport bike/motorcycle for sale. I did stop and asked the owners about the bike...never dropped, barely ridden, family had high medical bills and owners decided to sell...)

      "Motorcycle bloggers International" 2008 best and worst list...

      I like Honda's new Evo 6 motorcycle concept...it's a hybrid sport/cruiser style bikes. I wonder how it will perform on today's road conditions. (very interesting exterior-engine/motorcycle design also...)

      I think Honda recently announced their management has decided to discontinue some of their less performing cruisier bikes...true or false?

      Yamaha's new XSV1 Sakura with it's vintage inspired Japanese style bikes looks super cool...it would look nice on calanders/screensavers.

      Ducati's Desmosedici 99 (hmmm, did I spelled it right...Desmosedici) looks bad to the bone...well built/high performance track machine.

      Honda's CBR 1000RR and 600 RR are great performing bikes also...interesting choices.

      Perhaps, I might take a long riding trip with friends around North America for a year and grow a long beard like actor Ewan McGregor...heehe, just kiddin.

      Overall interesting Motorcycle Bloggers International 2008 list. Ride safe.
