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 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.

Here's the story: http://www.r6-forum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=184890

This year, I've hit some big bumps with the bike - Bazzaz fried, took part of the wiring harness with it... it was a mess. Finally got the bike up and going, though now I am selling it as I am moving on to bigger, better, things (hopefully). This may be my last month with her, so, I'd like to win BOTM :)

Yamaha YZF-R6

My 2nd R6, 1st was a 99. Sold it a few yrs ago and always wanted one back. Everything is stock mechanically. Just wanted to do a custom looking bike that looks factory designed. Spent 2 months doing all the fabrications and clay/fiberglass/paint work and rode it 400 miles to Road America this weekend for a show. Check out more build pics from this build thread. Why ROTM? B/C everything is done by yours truly from scratch. You couldn't open a wallet and buy it if you wanted to. Everything is one off and there isn't another one out there that looks like it.

Mods:
- custom undertail exhaust (harley mufflers)
- custom tail (subframe & fiberglass shell)
- custom paint scheme

I believe I should be Ride of the Month, not because my bike is better, but because this bike has been through so much. From a street bike that I converted over to a track bike, then crashed, then fixed, then turned into a track/race bike that participates in the AFM race series in Northern California. This bike has given me so much opportunity to improve my riding, my lap times, my confidence in myself as a person...it really has changed my life and opened new doors for me. My life wouldn't be where it is today if i still have my CBR track bike.

I currently participate in the AFM series as a Novice, hoping to win a Championship and move up to Expert in the near future and race against the big boys!

I got this bike from my current Teammate. He was selling it as a street bike so I traded him 1 year of any paint he needed for his two race bikes, and 1 year of Crew Chief services at the track (this was before I was racing myself). Well the one year (2012) of me running his team was such a huge success with a Formula 1 Championship along with a #9 plate, that I continued on for a 2nd year in 2013. This year I am racing and am not his Crew Chief but his Teammate.

If I win ROTM, it won't just be for me, it will be for my Teammate Berto as well, as he has helped me so much to get to where I am today.

Thank you,
Robert

This is my second R6, I got it back in February of this year. My first bike was an 01 that I got for $1200 with less than 10k miles lol and got $1500 for it on a trade in (rode for 3 years for free). Anyhow since I got this bike I haven’t stopped ordering parts and it is basically done now, thanks to my good friend who did all the work for me. I don’t know if my bike would win ROTM but I think people enjoy seeing it.
