The Official October 2017 ROTM Entry Thread! <- Enter to 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.


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



GET YOUR BIKES IN - ENTER NOW

Seeing as I have passed my initiation period of 50 posts. It’s now my turn to uphold the honour of the Super 7evens!!

This is my new to me (this year) M1 ZXR750R. I’d been lusting after one since seeing my first ZXR in 1992 and then fell for the M1 all over again in ‘93, a vintage year for Kawasaki by all accounts! It spent its life in an Italian collection with only 26 miles on the clock when I bought it. I am currently running it in carefully where it has now covered approx 400 miles. I expect to enjoy around 500 special miles per annum with it.

Mods are;
Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tyres to replace the as new original Bridgestone Battlax tyres which are being preserved.
Giannelli period correct NOS silencer so the original can be preserved.
Goodridge braided hoses all around incl clutch in stealth black (originals kept safe).
Optimate charge lead.
Hybrid ZXR R&G/Aprilia paddock stand bobbins

Photos;












Hope you enjoy :)

Thank you
Nito

My vote too. It looks brand new, and better looking than lots of brand new bikes.

You were supposed to hold that M model until the end of the month. Now we will have to either have one of mine or EZ's token entries as nobody will want to compete.
