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

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 ana R6, you just have to be a member of the forum.

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.

Picked this bike up last summer for a great deal. Had recently rebuilt my 2002 F4i for the 2nd time, and my wife had really started enjoying to ride motorcycles. Taught her to ride and put her through some MSF courses, then gave her that bike and picked up this bike for myself. Raced it stock up in Alaska where I was stationed with the Air Force. Had a blast and got hooked on this bike. Started the mods over the winter and can't wait to get it back out on the roads and tracks this spring and summer.

Edit. Working on getting pics up, the links didn't work.

Chassis/Controls Mods: Galfer SS lines (front and rear), EBC HH front pads

Flashback to 2008. Got my first bike, '08 Ninja 250, and am loving life. Happened to come across Yamaha's 2009 line in a motorcycle mag, and fell in love with the '09 Raven color combo. Decided that at some point in life, I would own this bike. Couldn't be any other color combo, had to be the black and gold. Finally pulled trigger in 2014. Drove down to Kerrville from DFW to get it on the one day off I had that week, 10 hours roundtrip but I was the happiest guy alive. To me, this bike is perfect. I love every aspect of it. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to do track days, but I wouldn't track this one. I would pick up a second bike for that. Anyways, here she is.

The day she came home


Various stages
