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.

I welded my m4 pipe onto my exhaust myself.. :YEA ImageUploadedByMotorcycle1394340049.101633.jpg



This is my first bike. :YEA I wanted to get a used one because it's my first and I'm in college so I'm not loaded with money.. All the bikes for sale near me sucked. Not really, but had 12k miles or more and wanted $5k. My sister lives in South Carolina. I live in delaware. I looked near her and the bikes were cheaper! 2007 R6 5900 miles for $5400 with 2 helmets and a summer and winter jacket and tank bag. I went out with my step dad and loaded it in his truck and hauled it back to delaware. Over 10 hours of driving for this baby. This is going to be my first summer with it and I'm prepared to take it to the track a lot! Can't wait.

Oh, one more reason why I should win is.... I'm a nice son... I let my mom ride my R6. :popcorn: ImageUploadedByMotorcycle1394340517.084683.jpg
*She used to ride during her years in college and before she divorced my dad she would ride his Kawasaki Spectre 1100.*
Sorry I don't have the best pictures. During the winter I put all these new mods on and don't have too many new pictures with it since I haven't really ridden with them yet. In the months to come if I don't win, I will have an updated submission! Thanks!

Lets try again to see if there is love for the 2nd gens, I bought her in 2007 off of Craigslist with just the slip on and the hid kit and 11,000 miles, the rest is all me. She was my daily driver for almost a year (thank god for a mild winter that year) and current mileage is just over 50k. She has never left me stranded while at the same time giving some of the best experiences you can have in on and around bikes.

Ok so I bought the bike from Barney's in St. Pete with one mile on it after I finally talked my wife into the whole idea. (Yes for those that are married, you know whats up; don't even try to play) Drove it for 2 weeks getting the hang of my new bike. I've ridden dirt bikes, quads, trikes, scooters, race cars..etc. nothing like this. Well deployed for about half a year and went right back to it...rest repeat. so after about 2 years of doing this i have been able to ride it about half of the time with deployments separating me from the grips. so far i have been to the track at jennings gp, ran 1:42's and was a blast also, racked up 18700 miles on it traveling to NC from FL. i consistently find out ways to ride and have to upgrade, upgrade, upgrade! I do all of my own work trying to learn as i go and always have a new question, almost on the daily. i think i should at least get a vote for the amount of miles i have accrued over the short amount of time i have owned it lol. but seriously i devote a lot of time and resources to have this 600cc monster. its always fun and always ready to go!

i hope all of you like it as much as i do!
