Monday Motorcycle Chain Links – The Best Motorcycle Stuff From the Interweb
|It’s the end of another Monday, and the weather has taken a horrible, chilly turn for the worse here in Michigan. Against all odds, it’s time to spread some happy (even though I’m not feeling it) your way.|
Thought I’d take some time to put together a page of my favorite stuff I read this week from the Motorcycling Internet Collective.
If you dig motorcycles, these guys have what you need this evening. You’re sure to like what these greasy motorcycle types took the time to encode for you.

Tips for buying your motorcycle insurance, coverage you need:
- Collision to pay for damage caused to your vehicle in an accident with another vehicle or any stationary object.
- Comprehensive to cover such things as fire, hail, wind, vandalism, hitting an animal, etc.
- Towing / Pickup
- Medical payment or personal injury protection to cover the medical bills resulting from an accident.
- Uninsured or underinsured motorist to protect us when the other driver is at-fault and does not have coverage or assets out of which your bills can be paid.
