Default *December 2012 ROTM Voting Thread*

Here it is guys and gals.... The Ride of the Month Holiday Special.
I was pleasantly surprised with how great all these bikes are, and I'm 100% sure this will be a tough choice for a lot of voters.

The rules are simple:

1. Only staff can post in this thread. All other posts will be deleted.
2. Only one vote per IP. Any cheating or irregularities in the voting will put you on the naughty list.

Here are the contestants in no particular order:

(let me know if you put a whole pic of your bike in your profile. I can swap it out for this one)

** As always, if you'd like me to use a different album pic of your bike, just shoot me a pm.

Contestants are free to post whatever additional pics/mod lists they'd like.

Best of luck!

Although my bike looks subtle, it has a LOT of detail to it. Many included in this post below.

Mil spec wiring, A&N fittings to the fuel rail, sheathing for misc wiring, ARP bolts throughout the bike, and a custom one off V-banded exhaust with wide band bung. (not added in this particular pic). I have the normal mods but details are what I personally like. Subtle and clean.

Check out my album as I have many detailed pics and thanks for looking!

This is a super clean bike and I picked it up this past may with only low miles on it! It now has a lot more but is super clean!!

I purchased this with just 1100 miles this past May, 2012! One owner and a lady that was afraid of it. It was bone stock when I got it and had the original tires on it too.

Mods to date are:

. lowered
. Fender eliminator kit (all ARP hardware since the kit came with IMPERIAL BOLTS ON A METRIC BIKE!)
. CNC Pazzo adjustable levers
. Pilot pure tires (claimed to be lighter)
. ARP throughout
. Fuel pressure gauge with A&N fittings
. PowerLet power source with Mil spec connectors and harness
. Yoshi RS3 with custom mid pipe with V band and wide band bung
. Go-Pro mounted to the side of the bike
. Frame sliders
. K&N filter

Waiting to tune

. Power Commander not yet installed
. Dyno tune bottle kit not yet installed
. Dyno jet quick shifter
. Puig double bubble
. Wide band

Future mods:

. Chain
. Sprockets
. MAYbe a small 4" stretch for track use.
. Spielger lines
. LED inserted in OEM dash for when bottle engages.

When I first bought it! STOCK.
