Whether you are a registered member of the 600, 750 or 1000 party remember to vote objectively.

We have a couple of sweet rides up for voting this month.

Good luck to both of you!!

And the story: So, I'm not a good story teller, but here goes. Purchased "Black Betty" back in March. I made some other bike friends pretty quickly, you know how that goes. So far betty is layin' a hurt on everybody but the S1000RR, I mean that thing is a beast, although after riding it, I still prefer my 750. All my buds gave me a lot of shit at first for buying a gsxr, but now they all keep saying how much they like. Thats right chumps. They just can't deny its faster and better looking. Anyways. I have owned a few bikes in the past, but this is the first one that I have felt comfortable enough on to go ludicrous speed and have been able to do wheelies on. I'm just getting comfortable with them now, and I feel like my skills should start to progress faster from this point on. Looking forward to growing as a rider and I think this is the perfect machine. A friend of mine is trying to get me into tracking it, but I just don't feel ready yet.

I probably forgot something. The frame and fuel tank are basically the only stock parts...
The coming winter I'm going to paint the fairings, new exhaust hanger, Yoshimura Type A gearbox, IRC Race traction control,
install easily removable lights and license plate holder.

And the story: I started riding with a Honda NSR125. Sold it and didn't have a bike for 7 years. Then in 2008 I bought my GSX-R K1 750. The normal story, I was planning to keep it pretty stock - you know how it goes. Two years ago I found a cheap K5 1000 engine and a friend fully rebuilt it along with the mods. I did the 1K engine swap using Hybrid racing mounts. A year ago I meat a guy who had a spare K5 1000 frame with a title. He sold it to me for a good price. Swapping the frame was pretty much only reasonable way to upgrade to a newer bike. :)
