Small motorcycle initiatives are hard work. Despite being a hobby, YouMotorcycle and bikerMetric serve up 165,000 page views to over 70,000 motorcyclists every month. The community and friends help out on occasion, but whenever an advertiser steps up and steps in to throw us a few bucks the support goes a long way.
