November 2016 Bike of the Month Winner

Up-on-one-wheel - Congratulations you took this month with 89% of the vote.

All right I'll put mine in here again just for old time sake and to populate this thread a bit.

Year: 2007
Model: GSXR1000K7
- Hindle race Header, Alien Head Pipe
- Galfer SBK Wave Rotors
- Hel Break Lines
- Ohlin R&T forks, Olin TTX rear shock with remote
- Ohlin Steering Damper
- Brembo front and rear Calipers (Brembo Pads)
- Brembo Master and lever remote adjuster
- Custom Painted Rims and Dunlop Q3ís - now (Q2's in the older images)
- Custom Engine & Axel Sliders
- SuperSprox +2 Sprocket, Gold RK 525 Chain
- Vortex Rear Sets
- Yoshi Case Covers
- Hot Bodies Undertail & Hugger
- Competition Werks Pivot Plate Mount
- K&N Filter
- Throttlemeister Bar Ends
- Woodcraft Clip-ons
- Pazzo Shorty Levers
- Luimoto Custom Seat Cover
- Stomp Tank Grips, Custom Tank Pad
- Flashed CPU with custom tune and a redundant PCIII
- All the usual easy mods like the pair valve etc.
- Sporttech Black Windscreen, Hot Bodies Mirror Block Offs, Adaptive TPX Radar with Blue Tooth and LED
- Aprox 10 horse power worth of decals maybe more...
- Some minor motor work for a nice HP increase and close to 45lbs shaved off....this bike is a beast.

Story: This is my 29th bike and the best one Iíve ever had. The back half of the bike has 34,000kms, the front has about 2/3rds of that most likely. It was a real money pit and time consuming machine but I've had fun doing it none the less. Iím an Industrial Designer/Machinist/back yard grease monkey and have enjoyed building and racing bikes for as long as I can remember.
The beast still does 305kph even with the +2 rear sprocket and will lift the front at 180 at 7000 with a simple roll of the magic gas thingy on the right clip-on.
I love all bikes, had 34 in total, 5 at the moment but the GSXR is 1st prize to me!

Hands down. One of the nicest GSXRs I've ever seen.

I don't know, but I been told
It's hard to run with the weight of gold.
Other hand I have heard it said
It's just as hard with the weight of lead

Thanks lads
But the odds were not that stacked against me this time, a one in 3 chance to get into 1st place...pretty good odds if you ask me. A good test now will be to see how it stacks up against the 11 other great bikes that end up going for the Bike of the Year 2016.
She's come a long way since her humble beginnings.



Space is limited so ride on the edge, just make sure you're geared up and ready for it. It is called the edge for a good reason!
**GSXR1000K7 - Mod List: ....still has stock frame **
Yes officer, I did see the speed limit sign, I just didn't see you!

I loved that bike and it was a blast to ride. Unfortunately it was a Harley product and suffered catastrophic motor failure at 20,000km. My HD dealer completely destroyed that bike for me.
Was the 1 big street bike for me after taking many years off. Riding this XB12SCG for 2 years probably saved my life giving me a chance to get my shit together before getting this GSXR1000K7.

I usually do NOT like the looks of yellow bikes/Gixers.
However, your bike is awesome!! Looks awesome, etc.
A well deserved BOTM!
