I think the only reason we buy motorcycles is so that we can buy accessories and gadgets. It's a great excuse, don't you think... ?

Looking through last year's statistics, here's what I saw. (note: the statistics come from your search patterns. When you enter some keywords in your favorite search engine, those keywords are captured by our system, and later analyzed. So what you see are the results of the searches, not people reading specific articles)

Helmets


Anything related to helmets was by far the most searched item. In total, we received 42,239 searches related to helmets.
