The Worst Motorcycles of 2013: The Negative Nancy Report
Special post by resident guest blogger Happy Gilmore

You boast to your friends and co-workers that you’re going to be shaving 20lbs, quit smoking and open that savings account.

But you’ll probably notice that there are a few bikes that you’ve seen before, and might be looking a little tired. Or you might have noticed one or two bikes that you scratch your head about thinking “What? Who is going to buy that?”
Broken-down by motorcycle category, like a list of unfulfilled resolutions, I have compiled my opinion for the worst motorcycles available this year. Feel free to disagree; in fact, I encourage it.
