I am dedicating the future ROTM threads to Matt. Look after us.
You cannot submit a bike 2 months in a row or if you've won within the past year. Voting starts on the 20th or after 10 entries, whichever comes first and ends on the last day of the month. The bike must be your own, but it doesn't need to be just an r6.
Please take a look at past ROTM contest for ideas on how to enter your bike. Bike does not have to be an R6, you just have to be a member of the forum.
This is my brand new 2012 R6 I picked up two weeks ago. It now has a whopping four miles on the odo. I'm 44 and my two previous bikes were a 2003 R1 and a 2000 R1. Both R1's were bought new, blue and I modded them too, err. Had a new FZR600 back in 1998 and a 1990 250 Ninja way back in late 1989 and a street legal enduro before that. Also some dirt bikes here and there. I have been riding street bikes since 1984 and dirt bikes about 4 years longer than that.
Here is what I have done so far...... Yes I know the pics suck.

Why should I be named ROTM? I purchased this 2007 R6 Charcoal (6700mi) April 2, 2012. I've never worked on a bike before and I did 100% of the work on this bike myself and that is why I'm proud to enter ROTM. Regardless if I win or not, I just like to get exposure for my bike because I'm extremely proud of my accomplishment! I think I've done enough to go toe to toe with some track bikes this month. Bring 'em on!!!
