Motorcycle Bloggers International Riders Choice Awards

(Click picture on the right to see the weather-proof scooterist)

Motorcycle Bloggers International (MBI), a group of dedicated motorcyclists for whom “riding and writing is what we do,” is at it again! It’s time to nominate the best and worst in all things motorcycle related in 2007. What were the best products introduced—and the worst? Who were the extraordinary achievers in motorcycling? Who contributed great things to the motorcycling world in safety, touring, and adventure riding, to mention a few? Let’s not forget the fallen stars, those who demonstrated “a serious lapse in judgment in 2007.” Nominations continue until February 10th (sorry for the short notice).

Voting begins February 15 and runs through March 16, 2008.

Winners will be announced on March 19, 2008.

I’ve nominated Carla King for her amazing contributions in solo motorcycle touring (national and international), her extraordinary “misadventures “ and her wonderful motorcycle blogs and book authorship that keep readers up-to-date on her whereabouts and newsworthy motorcycle information. She's recently partnered with a frequent visitor here, the multi-talented, D. Brent Miller of Sojourner Chronicles, and now offers a Miss Adventuring Podcast series--very cool! I can't hardly wait to dig in there!


Here's what it looks like here in Chi-town:
