The Official November (and Final 2016) ROTM Entry Thread!

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.

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

GET YOUR BIKES IN - ENTER NOW

Thanks Blue but....
I have a cunning plan.......

Back by popular demand, well - Bungles & WillZX14s demand anyway...
Third time lucky......my 1999 ZX-7R P4.

It used to look like this:

It has these on the side instead of the larger yellow bordered ones:

It has one of these fitted:

Instead of one of these:

It has a pair of these fitted:

It has had this repaired:

It has this on the tank:

But I think it should have this:

It sometimes goes to a pub & poses in the sun:

And now it looks like this (spot the changes, answers on a postcard):

Sometimes it gets undressed:

And not forgetting its best friend:

Enjoy oh, & vote!

Gotta love a clean ZX7R. I gotta get a new seat at least before I enter my streetfighter ZX7R. You really making me want some fairing with those pics though.

[B]I'm going to leave the final entry thread open for another few days. We need to get another entry in as we have never let someone win by default in the past!

Get your bikes in!

I'll enter my WR450F.

2012 Yamaha WR450F

Street legal conversion, Trail tech dash, reversed the polarity in the display for better night viewing, FMF slip on, Hammerhead shifter, Cycra factory CRM handguards, Morimoto 5000k HID, Kenda K270 tires front and rear, Ironman 50t rear sprocket, Notoil filter, snorkels removed from the airbox, GYTR programmer to adjust fuel map, pro taper bar and pillow top grips, TBT Racing suspension overhaul, somewhere around 5000 miles on the bike.


















Good morning! Is it Friday yet?

How about a change of pace this month??? Let's get the road sofas out and compete.

2014 Ninja 1000
Green, the fastest color!!!
I got the bike with only 1400 miles on it and now have about 4000.

Full Akrapovic header with stock cans. Perfect match. Lots more performance, only a little louder and a lot better tone especially at WOT
Ivan's tuned CDI
Ivan's Blockoff Plates to remove smog with a jumper plug to keep the FI light off
Stock over-the-counter Kawasaki color matched Saddle Bags
Over-the-Counter Kawasaki Rear Seat Bag
Sargent and Corbin Front Seats (I'm still deciding which I like better)
Battery Tender Cable with USB adapter so I can keep my phone charged
Ram Mount with X-Grip through the triple tube mount for my phone
CalSci Windscreen
Brand New set of Bridgestone BT-016 Pros just put on.

I loved my 2012 Z1000 and my 2008 Concours 14, but neither was perfect for me. This is right in between. Essentially the same engine/frame/fork setup as my 2012 Z1000, but with similar bags as the Connie and I can get my short legs over this beast. It is light and nimble with the bags off and can soak up the miles with bags on. The Ivan's tune with the Akra is FANTASTIC with torque way down there. It really woke this bike up, got rid of that part throttle herky-jerky crap. I just love it. Already on my second set of tires and only had it a few months.

I know we are desperate but yes we removed the ZX requirement however at the very least it has to be a Kawi.
