The Official April ROTM Entry Thread!! <- WIN A $50 CG GIFT CARD!

This is the Official ROTM Entry Thread

** The contest format will be an 11 month ROTM contest. Each monthly winner from January to November will be entered into a final poll in December for everyone to choose their favorite bike for the RIDE OF THE YEAR (ROTY). **

The winner of the ROTY will win a $50 CYCLE GEAR GIFT CARD!!!


-All bikes entered must belong to a ZXFORUMS.com registered member.

-All competitors must have at least 50 posts to enter the competition. We want to ensure prizes and glory go to real members of our forum.

-You must post a picture/pictures that everyone can see. No links!

-We would like to have some info on the bike, including year, model, mods, maybe a little story about the you and the bike.

-If the bike has won a Ride of the Month contest during the current ROTY campaign then you cannot enter that bike again. If you've got a new bike done differently...alright, I'll allow it.

-The entry must be a Kawasaki.


Once the deadline has passed, I will copy the entrant's posts to the voting thread to make voting easier. Also they will be added to the ROTY Voting Thread.
[B]

As always, the voting will be done in a separate thread found HERE

This is my 1999 zx7r. I bought it to replace my outdated 1985 gpz600. It's been a completely diffrent learning experience with this machine. It's a work in progress but I'll get it done when I'm not having fun riding.


Mods are:
Integrated tail light
K&N air filter
Dynojet jet kit
Float bowl mod
+4 els ignition advancer
M4 exhaust

What's the red bike? I don't know much about cruisers but I know it's not a Harley because the V angle is too wide. I have owned a couple of V twins though. A Superhawk, and one of these.



Mine was the only one I ever saw. It was a 1982 model and I bought it new in 1986 for $1,400. MSRP was $3,600. No one wanted them and I'm not sure why other than the styling was a little off. It had good power down low, was reasonably fast, handled better than expected, and was super comfortable to tour on two up, which is why I bought it. I kept it for 5 years and put almost 80,000 miles on it. More than any other bike I've owned. That said, I was never excited by it (and apparently neither was anyone else). I tried to sell it and couldn't. Listed it for $500 and never got a call. I ended up selling it to an mc boneyard for $400 and considered myself lucky to get anything.
