One Year of the World Motorcycle Community

Here's to a great motorcycling 2014!

The World Motorcycle Community has just passed 6,000 members after being in existence for just one year!

12 months of a great motorcycling community which has covered every possible subject relating to motorcycling and attracted members and contributors from around the world.  Thanks to all who have posted, commented, shared and +1'd.  Here is the Active Motorcycle Posters circle.

I would especially like to thank the current moderators +Karl Hargreaves (posts and comments) +Speed Triple & R1200GS (posts and comments) and +John Nelson (posts and comments) for all of their hard work in making this one of the best and active motorcycle communities on Google+.

2013 has been a great year for motorcycling with Marc Marquez showing the ‘old hands’ how it is done in +MotoGP  by clinching the World Championship in exciting style.  See the Marc Marquez posts on #womoco here

Video Highlights
This is a music video that Ed March filmed while on his 13,000 mile journey from Malaysia to the UK on his trusty Honda C90.  www.c90adventures.co.uk which was originally shared on Google+ by Sushil K Pingua. who is another adventurer.  http://youtu.be/S6f5yA2N_-8
