The Riders Choice Awards are unique in that the nominees and winners are chosen by every day riders around the world. The awards reflect the judgment of the motorcycle buying public, not motorcycle industry insiders. Anyone could vote, there was no restriction on age, gender or country. Even non-riders could vote. No registration, nor email addresses were required. However, a system of storing and analyzing IP addresses was put in place to minimize duplicate voting.

After the success the first Awards had last year, membership in MBI skyrocketed from 12 to 96. Millions of readers worldwide read about the 2006 Awards.

      hey mike don’t know if you say the paper today in florida today(what a joke)but it looks like that what they are reporting on billy lane is that he did indeed have a valid license the night of the crash that killed morelock and through a friend of mine today he heard that it was because carolina didn’t file the correct paper work in suspending his license thats why the other two charges were dropped but it did say in the paper that the state attorney could file more charges against him sounds to me like nobody wants to do there job they get paid to do if you ask me

    4. Mike Odom Says:

      Yes, I understand that it remains some charges could still be filed. We will have to see what happens there. Sorry for the response time, I am still playing catchup from bike week.
