Wow! 

When I started this blog, and still today, I just write and post about motorcycle “stuff” that is of interest to me and my wife.  Our rides, stuff we try out, motorcycle themed media are just some of the items we post about.

I never really thought that a lot of folks, beyond family and friends, would be interested in our motorcycling adventures. But, we have over 6500 folks keeping up with blog, way more than I would have ever expected!

Now we have been selected as one of the “Top 100 Motorcycle Blogs To Follow”! To say we were surprised by this selection would be an understatement.  Coming in at #69 means that we still have room to improve J !

So what’s next for our motorcycle blog?  Just more of the same, LOL.  But, if you guys have any ideas for what you would like to see just post a comment.

 

THANK ALL OF YOU THAT FOLLOW THIS BLOG!

Dealernews has announced their 2014 Top 100 Dealers. Dealerships from 30 states (and two from Canada) were recognized for their outstanding efforts.top 100 2014

Out of the Top 100 Harley Davidson (42) had the largest number of dealers listed while Suzuki and Yamaha tied for second place (37 each). Harley Davidson was also awarded the Vehicle Brand of the Year.

The big winner was Motorcycle Mall of Belleville, NJ when it was selected as the best overall dealer of 2014. Dealernews had this to say about Motorcycle Mall:

“The dealership regularly hosts movie nights, and puts on stunt shows and works closely with Motorcycle Safety Foundation rider courses, which in turn helps bring younger customers in. The dealership’s average customer age is 30, an enviable number in an industry where buyers aging out is a legitimate concern. At Motorcycle Mall, they sell the experience of coming to the dealership as much as of riding itself.”

“We want to make this a destination where people want to come here and come back. We want people to associate riding with Motorcycle Mall. We’re your local dealer and we’ll take care of you. This isn’t, ‘Buy a bike and we’ll see you later.’ It’s trying to build that customer loyalty.”

Some of the other awards presented by Dealernews were:

Community Outreach: Frieze Harley-Davidson, O’Fallon, Ill., tied with Woodstock Harley-Davidson.
Service Department Excellence: Cyclewise / Ducati Vermont, New Haven, Vt.
Customer Service: Performance PowerSports, Seneca, S.C.
