It's that time of the year again. Voting time. And it's not for the US presidential elections, no.... much more important. It's the Oscars of the motorcycle industry.
Run by MBIMotorcycle Bloggers International, an association of motorcycle news and blog sites, the worldwide association of motorcycle news/blogs sites, this is a truly user award.
You, the reader, gets to decide which are the best motorcycle products from last year (and not to forget, the worst). There are 9 categories for the MBI Riders Choice Star awards, and 4 in the Fallen Star awards.
It was you the reader who nominated the products in the first place, so now you get the chance to actually vote for the ones you think are the best of the best, and the worst of the worst. Don't let other people decide what the best.... vote!
Starting today (15 February 2008), you have until March 16th 2008 to make your vote count. The winners (and losers) will be announced on March the 19th.
