some info:
The name is Robert. I fell in love with sport bikes back in 2004 when I was a junior in HS. After laying my eyes on my very first bike...I was never the same. Unfortunately, I was still living at home with my parents and coming from a Hispanic culture…it was not very easy trying to convince my parents to let me get a motorcycle so the long wait started. After waiting six years, in 2010 I purchased my first sport bike, 2001 R1. I soon realized that shit was way too much for my newb ass so I sold it and gathered money to get a new bike. After saving up for four or five months I drove down to Covina, CA and picked up Pep-C. Thanks to God and my wife, my dream came true and I was able to get the bike of my dreams.
So my adventure started with Pep-C and I’ve slowly been upgrading parts here and there. I enjoy working on her and getting my hands dirty at 10PM and not regretting it in the morning. Since 2004, my life has always somewhat revolved around sport bikes and it has recently been taking up a lot of my time. My wife along with Pep-C, are my encouragement, therapy, joy, and the twinkle in my eye. It’s been hard for my wife to let me get a bike and watch me dump $$$ into her when I get nothing it return (monetary wise) but she is able to see my happiness and she has been very supportive of it.
Everyone here has a bike with a story, I don’t feel like mine is any more special than how you feel about your bike, but your vote would be more than appreciated. Thanks for reading!

I love my bike. Plain and simple, like most of you guys on here. Sometimes it hates me, but thats okay, this is unconditional

Always wanted a bike. I professionally race shifter karts, so naturally I'm attracted to these sort of things. I saved up even while paying for college and eventually landed on a deal. It needed a little work but no biggie, I'm a mechanic. After a few odds and ends (i.e. rewiring the entire bike etc etc). It was alive! <3 Its been a beautiful relationship ever since.

I think my favorite bike memory is one day a few years ago my car overheated in the middle of winter. I ordered the parts but they were not due to come in for a few days. With no other option to get to work (only had one car at the time) I had to take the bike in. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but it was sub 30* out that morning. My commute is 35 miles each way. I had minimal gear to wear and certainly nothing that could keep me remotely warm. around the 30mile mark my hands were feeling, well, hypothermic. I couldn't take it anymore so I just hit it and flew to work. Not really sure how fast I was going but definitely over 120. I do NOT recommend and it was stupid, but hell, it got me there. I have plenty more great times but this was a good one where she really pulled through for me.

I love my bike because I basically built it from the ground up. I've learned so much from it. I was hooked from the first ride on it and every ride brings a huge smile on my face. Its a feeling like no other.

Like I said, need 'a little' work:

Track time!

Why is this picture so small?

You can search up my name there and watch a few videos I've created on my spare time. Just to give you guys an idea, I currently have 37,500 subscribers with over 10.4 million views. ;O

Anyways, I think my bike should be named Ride of the Month because she taught me what love is, and what a relationship should consist of. When I first bought her, it was mint, completely stock, ready to be ridden. The night I first took her out for a spin, gave chills running up my spine. Every input I gave her, she gave the exact output I wanted. I felt like she understood me, and I understood her. On our one month I decided to give her a little tease and bought her a Vortex front sprocket with a new chain. She felt a little different about things but it was all for the better, and it brought us closer. I felt after giving her that front sprocket, we decided to do things a little faster. Few months pass by, and finally. I decided to give her the full package. I installed a full system on her and a power commander to top everything off. My God does she moan so deep now. I went through a phase where I demanded so much from her, that she started showing some wear and tear. I wanted to do something about it because I didn't like the way she was feeling. I flushed her out, and refilled her. RBF600, AMSOIL, and most importantly a BMC Race Filter so she could breath better. Ah, it was a quick recovery. At this point I was crazy about her. I wanted to spoil her with all the money I had in my savings jar for future girlfriends. I gave her new levers from Shermoto, improved her eyes from DDM Tuning, SKUR carbon fiber covers because my keys kept scraping her top every time I rode her, and most importantly Pro Grips so I can give her a more precise twist and better grip whenever I give her a hard ride. Most recently, she gave me mixed signals. I didn't know if she wanted to speed things up or slow things down. I kept wondering what was wrong that I realized it was something I've done back in the beginning of our relationship. The front sprocket. This whole time she was giving me wrong outputs of how fast we wanted to go. I kept wanting to go faster and faster because everyone else was doing it, but she showed me that it was illegal. But it's all solved now thanks to a SpeedoDRD.

Sorry for the long story, but this my friends.. is what a relationship with your bike should be all about. Whatever you do, you must first understand her, and have her understand you. Whatever problems may arise, there's always a fix. Relationships can last long, only if you treat her right and if you show her hospitality. Well, her and I, we've been going strong for two years and I can honestly say, I'm in love with her.. ..and that's why I think my bike should be named Ride of the Month.

This is my 2012 r6 named “Bella.” She is my second bike, my first being a ninja 650r. I became interested in motorcycles ever since I was younger and I would watch my older cousins riding on their sportbikes. Of course the parents were against them saying, “not as long as you live in my house.” This led to me heading to college and living in Newport where I picked up my first bike, Had some fun times on that ninja 650, went down a few times and learned a lot of valuable lessons through errors made and the MSF class. Too make a long story short I ended up selling the ninja after college due to the lack of finding a job and student loans coming in. That was a little more than a year ago. This past April I remember waking up to the sound of a Honda cbr1000 riding on by and that’s when the urge to ride again really hit me strong. I headed straight to the nearest dealership, a convenient 5 miles away, and when I walked into the dealership I knew right away this was the bike I wanted.
I have an image in my head of what I want the bike to look like after all the modifications, so she is not nearly completed probably only 40% completed. Here are some pics that the girlfriend took of the bike for me. She’s all about photography so I hope you guys enjoy them.

I got my 04 Limited Edition Silver R6 back in 09 from the stealer ship with 8000 miles on her. After living/racing in the canyons for a year I lowsided her 85+ mph at GMR and broke pretty much everything on it. In no rush to get back on a bike I let her sit for a few months in my garage. I slowly started repairing it and decided on a color change and ended up with a black. Pretty much took 2 years of saving up/repairing to get her to where I was happy with it again. Here She is Enjoy

Got the bike in on a trade, started with a golf cart I had gotten for free, traded that and a couple guns for a 2003 polaris sportsman 700 that needed some work. Then I ended up trading that for the r6. I only have $800 into the bike, and she rides like a dream!

RIP Matt (Ghost R6). You will be greatly missed. Be smooth and the rubber turning till we meet again.
