Ten Best Bikes 2013 Our annual list continues to honor those who build the best.
Deep in our hearts, most of us know that we’d ride just about anything as long as we got to ride. It’s just part of being an enthusiast. But we also know that in the great competition of motorcycling, we all strive for the best, whether it’s how we ride or what we ride. The same goes for the passionate people who build motorcycles for us. This year has been fantastic, offering everything from technology-pushing superbikes and touring machines to the coolest cruisers and low-cost fun bikes. And all that rolls in between.
While there may be fewer models than were offered in some of the peak years before the Great Economic Highside of 2008-09, we have a more diverse market than ever. Inexpensive bikes to get new riders into riding have blossomed in a way we haven’t seen in decades. And at the high end, well, never has there been a time when electronics, technical improvements and overall design progress have brought more to the people, allowing us to ride faster, safer and farther.
Which is what we’ve spent the last year doing to help us determine the Ten Best Bikes of 2013. Final thought? Life on two wheels is better than ever.
