About Total Motorcycle

Since 1999, Total Motorcycle has served and supported motorcyclists and motorcycling worldwide. Our goal is to be unique by offering friendly, useful, helpful and unbiased motorcycle content not found anywhere else. No matter how you ride, where you ride or what you ride Total Motorcycle offers something for every rider; from our many free online guides, books and thousands of reviews to a thriving motorcycle community, TMW members say it is the most helpful and friendliest on the Internet.

Being the number one motorcycle website in North America is something we take a lot of pride in but it also takes a lot of work. Serving 13,000,000,000 (13 Billion) hits and 425 million readers means we have to keep on our toes to not only offer the best content but a service worthy enough for our readers to keep coming back to read, learn and have a great time visiting us. There are not many sites who are official media for a manufacturer let alone 39 of them! It takes time, effort, trust, respect and loyalty to setup global media relations with so many manufacturers. This helps us be the ONLY website with 55 years (yes 55) of Motorcycle Model Guides and the original MPG guide that even the US Government has used.

Why go to so much effort? Because our goal is to deliver the best experience we can to our readers and if that means extra work for us to set us further apart from the competition then so be it. Unlike the competition we are family owned and run! We love bikes and our primary goal is to support riders like you, not fatten our profits at your expense.

Total Motorcycle has been featured in many leading motorcycle publications and used by Governments around the world such as: The Bikers Atlas (North America), Practical Living Magazine (North America), Cycle Torque Magazine (Australia), Cycle Canada (North America), Bike Trader (Global), Los Angeles Times (United States of America), How to Ride a Motorcycle (Global), AME Magazine (Canada), BBC4 (United Kingdom), CISL 650 Vancouver (Canada), 9 FM: 92.5, 92.7 & 99.9 (United States of America), Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, The United States Government, The Canadian Government as well as offering motorcycle information and advice to global city government councils, TV shows/programs as well as movie producers/directors. We have been featured at major worldwide bike rallies and events (like Sturgis) and published books currently available at your local book store!

We look forward to a bright future where Total Motorcycle will continue supporting motorcyclists and motorcycling worldwide Our goals of providing friendly, useful, helpful and unbiased motorcycle content not found anywhere else in one spot will lead us to be the best we can be for many years ahead. -Mike and all the Staff of Total
