Well, just like a garage find project or entering a custom build project at the very last date, this article came into being. I wanted to round up and highlight one special thing from every month of year 2022. The Bikernet Blog is in a unique position to summarize Bikernet.com and 5-Ball Racing because it brings together all the cool things from www.Bikernet.com, Bandit's Cantina, the Official Facebook Page and of course the official 5-Ball Shop with added bonus of unique content only posted on the Bikernet Blog itself.

So what started as a series of one-liners for the upcoming first Thursday News of year 2023, has become a meaty yet lean muscle write-up on all that happened to grab internet attention online in 2022, on the topic of two-wheelers.

A total of 413 Blog Posts were made in the 365 days of year 2022. A year we hoped to recover from a mutating virus but got entangled in another human invention called ‘war’ instead. Nevertheless, two-wheeled industry rolled on and Bikernet.com led the way, celebrating 25 years of freedom & practicing its commitment to keep motorcycling free from political obstacles & legal roadblocks !!!

 
As you will see in the major updates from 2022, the fear and worry and apprehension at the beginning of the year was soon replaced by the spirit of motorcyclists. The same reflects in the news about products and events as the months go by. So all the pessimism and gloom did not stop us bikers from living life to the fullest and getting out into new adventures & revisiting and even reviving old ones.
 
Your Bikernet Blog Editor and Bikernet Official Facebook Page Curator, aspiring monk Wayfarer presents highlights of the year 2022, seen by Bikernet readers worldwide. Time zooms by faster than Bonneville racing which got rained out. 'Milestones' were completed including custom builds & charity drives. All the fear of virus did not 'infect' the enthusiasm of newbies nor of the regulars at Sturgis. Success was even seen in legislation thanks to persistent freedom fighters. Art and craft kept flowing on ink & hand-banged metal. A new generation and ever-youthful bloodline got the baton of 5-Ball Racing Leathers from ‘grandpa’ Ming ‘Bandit’ Ball.

There was diversity of adversity, but the entire year 2022 is now a history lesson uniting us with the confirmation, affirmation & belief that fear-mongering and doomsday predictions does not stop the world & two-wheels from rotating onward forever.
 

So, get going, have a peek at the recent past, then move onward --- ride free forever!!!
