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.
