And the winner is… (tank bag contest)

We had some great feedback and before we announce the name of the winner, I'd like to take a few minutes to do some analysis on the data (links to full spreadsheet below). 1451438_10152572800990586_4318535944745007321_nIn the spreadsheet, under the column for how you use the bike, we listed the primary use as we understood it, or the first listed u10561680_10152572800980586_6375634596334134982_nse of the bike in your text. For the mileage per year, we converted some to miles from Km, so that's why your numbers might not be what you remember. In addition, for some of yo  u who listed multiple bikes in detail, the spreadsheet may show multiple entries for the bikes, but only one entry for your name. Where you gave us a range of miles, or a range of miles across multiple uses, we tried to do a reasonable estimation of the miles-per-use, or in some cases we just divided it evenly. We also selected the higher number of your range, generally, where it seemed to make the most sense. In some cases, where information was light, multiple bikes were listed in the notes rather than on line items. 10561771_10152572800985586_8851380805290577451_nPlease note: the contest is a random drawing of respondents' names, and the data provided has absolutely no bearing on the selection process. You could have ridden a 50cc dirt bike 8 miles this year and still won. We just wanted to see what everyone rides and how they're using it. The winner was selected by a random number drawing made at http://random.org. Of the data provided, where all the elements were provided: Manufacturers: 10 Most represented MFG: BMW & Suzuki Lease represented MFG: Buell, Moto Guzzi, Ural Models: 43 Most represented model: VStrom Total miles reported: >412,000 Average miles per year: >8000 Highest reported yearly mileage: 38000 Lowest reported yearly mileage: 1000 Full spreadsheet can be viewed at this link. And so, without any further ado... The winner of the magnetic tank bag, as chosen by random using the random number generator at http://random.org, is...  Sean Winters. Sean, we will reach out to you to get shipping information. Again, thank you everyone, and I hope this information is as interesting to you as it is to us. Thanks!

Episode 63: Ugg & Egg.
“Tonight’s guest is a man who literally wrote the book on street riding.” David Hough joins us for a much appreciated interview. We learn a little about David himself as we discuss his history and his writing. Then we dive in and have a raw, open discussion about the state of motorcycle training and safety here in the US. David gives us his candid opinion on side cars, the Can Am Spyder, riding small bikes and how bigger isn’t always better. David’s books can be found on Amazon.com. http://tinyurl.com/6yafs8k
