I think thats it? for now.
I found the bike on craigslist and decided it was worth saving. I went through the micro fiches and replaced every missing peice. Every nut, bolt, fastener, foam pad etc, is the correct peice. Took a while to do but it was worth it. Found the body work on fleabay for $500 with zero miles on it from a shop who built a race bike
I could only find a black tank though. So I repainted it and the tank cover to match. The bike had 1200 miles on it when I got it. Sadly I've only put another 600 miles on it so far because of school and family obligations. That will all change in a couple weeks. Its currently off with my engine builder getting a few more ponies added.
All I have is some cell phone pics

Bought this whore new in July 08. Overpaid. Took it home and stripped a bunch of shit off, took it to the track at 600 miles. Its had three different slip ons, then went without, then got its crashed pipe. Its been fed all kinds of gas, been to a few states and tracks, been down the strip, through the rain, and even down on its side. Its been overpiped and under fuel managed, used, abused, and neglected. It needs a set of tires, brake pads, and a chain kit. Its gay yellow so I had to get race glass to remedy that. The suspension is stiff as fcuk and beats me to death every time I ride it, the bars are low, and the engine heat to my satchel is a little more than any man should have to endure on a 100* day....
All that aside, it still gives me a raging semi every time I see it in the garage, every time I eclipse 10k on the way to the nirvana of a 16.5k redline, every time I dig deep in a corner or push my luck on the low side of an off camber trying to get around that dude on the gsxrcbrzxwhatthefcukever, every time I come sliding in to the turn by my house thats darker than Jamal after a week in the carribbean sun.... So yeah, I fcuking love this bike, even if my 01 was nicer and cleaner...and the zx6r in my garage clowns it. Those bikes, while nice, do not provide the sexually soulful excitement of my 08. Yamaha, you did bad, but motherfcuker did you do good...

Bridgstone BT016 Tires.
so, to follow the directions of the contest here is my campaign statement
- my bike deserves to be the ride of the month because it's a natural beauty with an attitude on the twisties!! I feel like i'm in beauty pageant.
I've had this bike for one year and half, been riding on streets and canyons, very aggressive and strong, easy to handle and looks so amazing.
The GP1 exhaust sound like a mean symphony.
One thing that I'd consider adding to this piece of art is a steering stabilizer for better overall control since i'm planing to take it to the track for the first time soon!
and actually I'm trying to sell it to get a raven 08/09 R6
So that's it for this month votes. Hopefully we get a lot of voters and make this a close and exciting month. Best of luck to all who entered.
