Ahh, September. One of my favorite months. The weather starts cooling off a bit, the roads are still clean, and bugs start going away.

Welcome to the September Ride of the Month Voting Thread.

First the rules, then we'll get 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 cheating is lame.

Best of luck, guys.

I really wasn't going to take this too seriously - and probably still won't Much prefer a ride, then a nice mellow Barossa Red a good book and better woman!

But, the blinged up whippersnippers deserve respect and to be placed high on the list of desirable bikes - but not as high as the venerable, proven, beautiful in their originality, CBR1000Fs.

I give you..........my proud old work horse, 123,000 km on the clock. Runs like a Swiss watch, pulls like a Great Western Railway Locomotive, has the looks of a (slightly aged) supermodel, handles beautifully and most importantly of all, brings a smile to my face every time I ride it, be the distance small or large.



The Downunder CBR1000F basking in the beautiful Spring sunshine.





A 'Bear and his bike.............



So, if you're into solidity, longevity and levity - the CBR1000F deserves your vote!

Cheers, SB

My Aussie bike is still very much a work in progress.

When that photo was taken the only mods were:
- double bubble dark tinted screen
- rim tape

Since then I have added:
- pipe
- fender eliminator
- ventura racks

Still to go:
- flush mount indicators

I've only owned the bike for about 6 weeks. It was bone stock when I got it.

I'll try and get some current pictures this weekend.

They are like a Gearsack rack similar to that at the rear of my CBR1000F.

You have to be able to carry a slab of beer to a barbeque Downunder at the very minimum.
