First one of the new year! Little slow, but that's ok... it's January. It's cold here.

Here are the rules:

1. Only contestants and staff are allowed to post in this thread. All other comments will be deleted.
2. Only 1 vote per IP. Cheating is wack.

That's it!

Now on to the contestants:

My CBR has been my daily driver for the last three years. She has never left me stranded and is actually pretty comfortable. I rode it one year to the MotoGP in San Marino. I have done many mods to the bike to make it better to ride as a commuter. The riding position for the most part works well for me because I am only 5'6" tall.

Mods include:
Complete 929 front end swap with 17" wheel
EBC Pro Lite rotors
Carbon front mudguard
Eurospec headlight switch
Zero Gravity dark smoked double bubble screen
HID bixenon projectors and angel eyes
Reverse Illumiglo gauges with white faces and kph speedo (Italy!)
Carbon gauge bezel covers
RAM mount in steering stem for GPS
12v power outlet on left fill panel (wired through dedicated relay and fuse block)
Valter Moto Components bar end weights
K&N Filter
Dynojet jet kit
Skorpion (Akrapovic) full stainless system with carbon canister
Attack Performance rear sets
Speedo healer
Vortex rear sprocket/DID chain 520 conversion
Ventura pack system
Clear rear turn signals

That should about cover it. The HID projectors are far and away the best mod on the bike. Before I could see fairly well with the high beams on and not well at all with lows. Now I see everything very well with low beams and high beams are phenomenal.

I'll try to get some pics up tomorrow.
