Why i should win:There are a lot of amazing bikes out there much cleaner than mine, but as a full time college student with next to no money i think i have done really well with what i have. Motorcycles have been my life, after saving for years on end at the age of 12 i got my first bike. A brand new Suzuki 2002 RM85!!! (my parents loaned me half the money) God it was a blast i only ended up in the emergency room my 2nd year with a broken wrist and a completely flush to the face nose! I had to have reconstructive surgery on my nose! At that point i said im done with my rm85! so i sold it

. With what i made on my rm85 i got the rm125 for only $700 dollars!!!! Then i got the mod bug! i put Graphics, Full pro circuit exhaust, fat bars, everything i could find to fit on it. I learned how to work on it and changed my piston ring, i replaced the fork seals multiple times etc. Then i was trying to save some money to get my street bike. I was originally going to get a Suzuki gsxr 600

. My dad and I went to a cycle shop that said they bought bikes, i had no intention to buy a bike that day. i went in to just sell my dirtbike, but they had a used 05 r6 with 200 miles on it!! My gold i couldn't take my eyes off it. Apparently the story behind the bike was that the guy said it was to much for him and traded it in for a four wheeler! My dad was the one that said lets see what we can get it for!!!!! MY life was complete i had my motorcycle!!!! I mean my whole life revolves around this bike! And i have put blood, sweat and tears into this bike and for that i think i deserve to win!!!

Feel free to comment on it! Wish me luck! Ride Safe! And thanks for looking!

i have come to find long signatures are annoying
