April ROTM Submission

Please still keep Matt in your thoughts and prayers while he fights cancer.

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.
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.

Re: April ROTM Submission

Well.....lets try this again, lol

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 cultureÖit 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 Iíve 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. Itís 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 donít 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!

My first Yamaha, and I must say...I'm going to be hard pressed to get a different type of sport bike. The bike has exceeded many of my expectations and the 50th Anniversary edition is something to just stare at. Every time I park my pike and I'm walking away from it, I look back at it a few times.
