December ROTM Submission Thread

I am dedicating the future ROTM threads to Matt. Look after us.

Rules:
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.

Format:
Year:
Model (R6, R6S):
Engine Performance Mods (i.e. exhaust, PC3, etc.):
Chassis/Controls Mods (i.e. suspension, brakes, clip-ons, etc.):
Accessories:
Pictures (please limit to 4):

Also, tell us why your bike should be named the Ride of the Month. Give us the whole story behind it! How did you get it? Where? Include anything that will set your bike apart from the rest...

Good luck to all, lets make this another good one.

ROTM is sponsored by BullsEyeVinyl.com

Winner will recieve two R6-Forum.com ROTM decals showing the month and year that they won.

Bike: Bitchin' Blue 2012 R6
Re: December ROTM Submission Thread

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.

I'm actually 'not' looking to win BOTM, as my bike is not a track bike LOL. A couple of votes would be cool.


Goodridge stainless brake lines, front & rear.
Silver swingarm spools.
Yoshi oil plug.
Blind spot mirrors
Garage door opener equipped.
Tank pad.
Yamaha factory blue seat cowl.
Rear upper tail fairing tail piece (blue), to replace black stock color.
Intergrated 'clear' LED tails/turn signals.
Targa LED strip lic plate light.
Flush mounts 'clear'.
Silver aluminium bar ends.
Adjustable, lever length, LOP and folding clutch and brake levers.
RK gold 525 chain.
Black/silver Vortex rear sprocket (stock gearing).
Polished aluminum reservoir caps.
Blue aluminium rear sprocket nuts.
Vortex adjustable rearsets (silver).
Chainguard, passenger pegs, hugger and reflectors removed.
Made my own fender eliminator kit for a couple bucks.
Red GPR damper.
Brushed Jardine slip on, for now.
More mods in the Spring.

Beauty Chad! Thanks for entering! Really Adam? I'm sorry to hear that, unfortunately I have no authority and can't really help you to get your decals

Re: December ROTM Submission Thread

Year: 2007

Make: R6

Engine Performance Mods: K&N Air Filter, EngineIce, MJS weld on mid-pipe attached to MGP Growler slip-on, AGG Block Offs and a Bauce Racing flashed ECU

Chassis/Controls Mods: Marchesini Wheels, Michelin Power Pures, ASV gold levers, upgraded front brake lines, RK 520 chain / Vortex Sprocket -1/+2, Custom black and gold Bohemian rearsets (yes I know the gold doesn't match)

Accessories: Custom paint by me (QR6), Awesome CF rear hugger, homemade fender eliminator, shaved factory mirrors, Driven Gel Grips, bar-end mirrors, Krypton Projectors/Halos/HID’s, BullsEye Vinyl, frame sliders, rear seat cowl, painted factory fuel cap black, blacked-out factory rear-sets, Smoked front flush mount indicators, Smoked rear integrated taillight, Smoked windscreen, Tank protector, carbon fiber triple-tree yoke cover, clear/black Stomp Grip

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!!!
