DEADWOOD, SD, May 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Bikernet.com, the brainchild of an editor, writer and freedom fighter Ball Keithappeared at #25 in Feedspot’s list of Top 100 Motorcycle Blogs and Websites earlier this year.
The Bikernet blog, which celebrated its 25th anniversary last year, was one of the first sites to focus on the custom motorcycle market. It now includes not only custom motorcycles of all brands, but also technical material, travel information, legislative updates and commentary on important issues for motorcyclists. Bikernet’s editorial approach is to provide the perfect blend of motorcycle material and culture, as well as images that capture the art of custom and performance motorcycles and the people who ride them.
“Bikernet has always been ranked in the Top 30 sites on the Feedspot list, and this year we reached No. 25 in the rankings, still ahead of many well-known titles,” Ball said. “We don’t care if we’re considered relevant or not. We just do and post what we love, and hope to ride free until the end.”
Ball’s experience is as varied as the site. He is a VietnamA Navy veteran at the time who served as an electronics technician on a heavy cruiser, then on his return to civilian life he was a staff member and editor of numerous motorcycling and automotive titles. He eventually became executive vice president of Paisano Publications. His understanding of motorcycles and motorcycling culture helped him develop and run publications like Easyriders and In The Wind, which became the industry’s leading newsstand titles, as well as Hot Bike, Hot Rod Bikes , Quick Throttle, American Rider, Street Chopper and many others. other titles.
Ball’s non-editorial resume is just as long. He spearheaded the creation and growth of the motorcyclists’ rights organization ABATE and was named the organization’s national director. His motorcycle background has made him a draw for top TV shows, including roles as a crew member on Monster Garage and as a judge on American Chopper. ABC News interviewed Ball for the news magazine 20/20. His racing resume includes his participation in four successful motorcycle land speed record attempts and his honors include induction into the Sturgis Museum Hall of Fame (2006), Las Vegas Motorcycle Hall of Fame ( 2016), in the Motorcycle Riders Foundation Hall of Fame (2018) and Cycle Source Man of the Year (2006).
“To enter the Top 25 is a great honor for our site,” continued Ball. “But our mission will not change. We will continue to provide a great mix of bikes, new racing techniques and opinion pieces to entertain people who love building and riding custom bikes.”
Bikernet.com is a premier website that provides content for bikers and fans of the motorcycling experience. Established in 1996, Bikernet is consistently ranked among Feedspot’s top 30 global motorcycle websites and blogs, with monthly rankings as high as #25.
