Warrior Of The Year 2016 Winner!! - MMFB
Mar 06, 2017 - 5:01 PM - by sangathor
The winner of our 6th annual Warrior of the Year is MMFB!

It was another very close race this year, but MMFB (Mark) won with 13 votes. Not only is Mark an active and helpful member of our little tribe here on the forum but he has a wicked Warrior well deserved of the title of Warrior of the Year. It's hard to believe that his Warrior is his very first motorcycle. In his first post from 5 years ago (see below) you'll see how he even started modding it before he even rode it! The mod bug strikes early around here. He eventually would teach himself how to and then eventually make his own turbo setup without buying a prefabbed kit!

For winning Warrior of the Year, Mark was going to get a $100 gift card donated by the site owners Vertical Scope. But he PM'd me and requested that his winnings be sent to our runner-up, Milkman (Monty) as he thought Monty could use it in the Ukraine with his limited resources more than he could. How's that for showing the true essence of brotherhood that makes this site the awesome place that it is!!


MMFB

Congrats brother!

I brought my new ride home this evening. This is my first bike. Always wanted to have one and now I've finally done it. I've only ridden a few times and I'm planning on taking the ABATE course as soon as it's available. I've already started to mod the bike and I haven't even ridden it yet. It is an '06, red with Vance and Hines Big Shot, Fi2000, aftermarket handlebars, etc. It's in really good shape. I'll have to post pictures soon.

The 10 Most Reliable Motorcycle Companies
Apr 21, 2017 - 3:48 PM - by Motorcycle.com

Here at Motorcycle.com we get to ride all of the newest, latest, and greatest motorcycles on the planet. However, more often than not, our time with each bike spans the course of weeks, maybe months (but definitely not years), as new bikes are constantly flowing through our proverbial garages, waiting to get tested. This means we have reviews of almost every motorcycle on the market, but it also means that we lack firsthand experience learning about long-term durability and maintenance. So, when our readers ask about the reliability of a certain make or model, it’s a difficult question to answer, as reliability testing requires ownership for several years – something we simply aren’t in a position to provide.

Thankfully, the folks at Consumer Reports have compiled a motorcycle reliability study, gathering information from more than 11,000 riders, sharing their experiences on more than 12,000 motorcycles purchased new between 2008 and 2014. With this data, CR adjusted for mileage ridden over a 12-month span and estimated failure rates. Like golf, the lower the number (or percentage, in this case), the better the score. CR’s language in the link above is vague, using words like “trouble prone” and not defining what constitutes a failure. Nonetheless, the results are still relevant. Here they are, from worst to best.
