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.

This is my labour of love. I really like it, and it has caused a very large tiff between my parents and myself as to how much $$$ i put into it (i am a college student who is fortunate enough to save money by living with his parents) It was involved in an accident with me. I ditched the scratched stock fairings and bought some off of auctmarts. And it has just progressed from there. And here we are today, loving ever km i get to share with her.

Background
- Bought this bike in August of 2012 with 11k miles. At 20 years old and my first supersport bike, I was your typical squid. Wrecked it in April of 2013. Spent most of that year rebuilding it from the ground up. All work was done by myself. Paint with the help of a family friend. Now I'm finally just enjoying riding it. A lot of time and work has went into this bike. I'm stupidly attached to it, and never plan on getting rid of it.

This bike started off on the East Coast with me. I moved to SoCal 2 years ago and aggressively got into racing. I now own a small performance shop in Downtown LA, control ride for Motoyard Track events, work with California Superbike School, and race. This bike has been crashed and rashed several times at multiple tracks. She started off as a motor and frame and built her from there. No title bike, so when i say 08+ I really mean little bit of 08 here some 09 stuff here and just a tad of 13 parts lol. BIKE HAS BEEN CHANGED A BIT SINCE THESE PHOTOS.
