If you’ve ever been a fan of a popular, long-running TV show, you’ll probably remember at least one instance of the characters pausing and looking back at previous episodes. While this technique is mostly used in sitcoms and is probably put together by the writers for the show when they couldn’t get a new episode written in time to meet the production schedule, the episodes usually are a great tool for reminding ourselves about why we are so attached to particular shows. These retrospectives drive discussions among fans about why certain clips were or weren’t used for the episode.
For our little foray into self-congratulation in this, our 20th anniversary year, we thought we’d let you, the readers, decide which motorcycle road tests we should include in our retrospective. So, we consulted our website statistics to discover the 10 single motorcycle evaluations that received the most clicks. While this obviously favors models that have been around for a few years, gathering those eyeballs, the results are still interesting.
Let’s fire up the MO Wayback Machine, do a little navel gazing, and see what we learn. Tell us what you think about your choices for the most popular road tests in the comments.
