Total Motorcycle’s Take-a-Way: What a great two weeks of voting over the holidays. With over 50 bikes to vote from in 2017 it wasn’t easy to see who the winner would be at the end of the year! Did anyone guess Kawasaki would smash it out of the park in the 9th inning with the surprise release of the Z900RS? What an amazing bike, just wow. How about that 2018 Honda Gold Wing Tour coming in at #2? Amazing; honestly, I didn’t ever expect to see a Gold Wing in the Top 3 list! Way to go Honda. And the tie for 3rd place went to two really awesome retro motorcycles, 2017 Moto Guzzi V7 III Special and the 2017 Triumph Bonneville Bobber, you couldn’t go wrong owning either, both are chock full of character, style and class!
Our runners up proved to be quiet and interesting mix. It is the first year (in 7) that we didn’t have a cruiser finish in our top 10 and it wasn’t like I didn’t have cruisers up over the year. A few years ago I started to see the down-trend in cruisers, maybe we will see a cruiser resurgence again in the near future. Lots of sport and sportbikes in our runners up, the surprise for me was the #10 (out of 50 bikes): Ducati Panigale V4… I really thought that might have challenged first place from the media/rider hype on its launch, goes to show, hype is fickle.
Thanks again for everyone who voted (and will still vote) on the Cool wall and for supporting it. It’s fun, let’s keep it growing. – Mike
