Default *October 2012 ROTM Voting Thread*

Welcome to the October Show! We've got 5 sweet bikes this month, so this isn't going to be easy.

We'll start with the rules, then it's on to the contestants:

1. Only contestants and staff can post in this thread.
2. Only one vote per IP. Don't try to cheat because I will know and cheating is lame.

Here are the contestants in no particular order:

Man, I'm up against some good lookin' machinery this month!!

As some already know, my CBR is basically two bikes in one, as, like many other low budget racers, I toggle back and forth between a street legal setup and full race trim, everytime there is an event.

Here it is in its "Street clothes"

And, wearing the "Business suit"

Though the above pictures don't show it, I also had shortened the RS-3 exhuast, which has given me a slight mid-range increase, better sound, less weight, of course, and I think it looks a touch better as well.
Here's a look at the shortened can, before the race plastics were all finished:

For what it's worth, this bike is 100% DIY - it has never been to a shop.
All work done, from maintenance, to performance mods & tuning, fabrication, tire changes, etc., is done by me - this includes all the work to the race plastics, including the fiberglass repairs, base coat, color accents, number plates & numbers, and sponsor logos... it's not a professional job, but it's my first paint project ever, and I learned a lot!
All the work done is too much to list, but it's all in my build thread.

Here you go guys a few pics of her with the new paint. The pictures from my crappy cell phone do not do it justice.
