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

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.

Model (R6, R6S):
Engine Performance Mods (i.e. exhaust, PC3, etc.):
Chassis/Controls Mods (i.e. suspension, brakes, clip-ons, etc.):
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.

Used to have a 2006 R1 but wanted to go to an R6 for the track. Couldn't find anything I liked so traded my R1 straight up for a 05 CBR 600rr track ready it had more on it in suspension then my bike was worth. Well a week later a friend of mine put this R6 up for sale. I knew where it came from and the price was right. So after convincing my wife that I needed to buy a second track bike I drove to Kentucky to pick up this R6. It was mostly stock with the exception of body work, exhaust, and rear sets. After riding it one time I sent it to Georgia to have Performance Cycleworx do a chasis refresh, Ohlins suspension and make sure everything was ready for the 2014 track season. Picked it up in February on my way to Jennings GP and it was perfect. I had never rode with after market suspension before. I have made more improvements in the year of owning this bike then in the 5 years before. I feel great on this bike and love how quick and nimble it is. Blew a motor in June at VIR luckily a friend of mine in Georgia had a spare and sold it to me and I was back on the track in July. August I was getting ready to head to Road Atlanta and couldn't handle the fact that it was someone else's paint job on it, not mine. So 30 mins before I leave I grabbed some spray paint, tape and plasti dip and went to town. I honestly love it. Looks ridiculous but it's mine. It's been a great bike and it will have a Swenson Designs paint job on it in the next couple months.

I used to own a 2003 R6 that was very similar to this one without the suspension that I bought new and sold in 2012. I found this bike a year later with only 1,300 miles on it! The previous owner bought it, got pregnant a few months later, then it sat in her garage for nearly 5 years.

I couldn't pass up the deal, and thought my '03 was the best handling bike I'd ever owned, so I set out to make this one even better by getting the suspension done up properly by Mike Fitzgerald. There is a reason racers who have ridden the 2nd-gen R6 consider it THE benchmark for how a bike should feel when properly set up......it is just that good, and with only minor modifications can be made great.
