Top 10 Motorcycle News Stories of 2016

Let’s face it; by many accounts, 2016 was an awful year. We had terrorist attacks and the Zika virus, police shootings and the normalizing of the “Alt-Right,” Brexit and whatever the hell Ryan Lochte did at that gas station in Rio.

There was also the loss of cultural icons such as David Bowie, Prince, Muhammad Ali, Gene Wilder and John Glenn. And let’s not even get into Harambe the gorilla.
