Why do you think your bike should be Bike of the Month?
Why I Think My Bike is a BOTM Contender: This bike won bike of the month a couple of years ago, and since coming into my hands has undergone quite a transformation. I feel that this is a perfect example that one's definition of a "finished product" is a wonderful beginning point for another to realize what they really want in a bike. Through removing certain parts and modifications both performance wise and aesthetic that the previous owner had done, and then adding in those parts I felt best made the bike "mine," I feel that I've reached a product that goes beyond what the original iteration was, and truly made this bike fit me. I've made it more comfortable, in my eyes better looking, and overall a joy for me to ride. I find myself wheeling this bike out of the garage almost nightly and just sitting there and staring at it. I feel that my exacting attention to detail has really benefitted this bike, in that I have redone many things that the original owner did to get them "up to my standards." This goes for redoing the headlights, to rewiring the front harness so that it didn't stick out from below the fairing, to replacing the scarred gold top yoke nut. In the end I've reached a much more polished product than what I'd originally purchased, and the transformation for me is a very pleasing one.

The Hyperpro was on the bike when I bought it from its previous owner. At the time of purchase the bike was Jet Black with gold accents. I don't know for sure if he bought the damper in this particular color combo, although I'm pretty sure I've seen other Hyperpro dampers sporting similar colors recently.

Thanks guys!

Having owned a mostly stock D675, and now this one, the motor work and tune on this created a serious screamer. I'm in love with it.
