Official April Ride of the Month Entry Thread!!

It's the first of the month and you all know what that means...
Time for another Ride of the Month Contest!!!


This thread is for entries.

Voting will be handled in the Official April ROTM Poll. (Click here for the Poll thread.)

The deadline for entries will be 11:59pm (eastern time) on the 15th of the month. Only 10 entries will be accepted as that is the maximum for the "polling options". It's first come, first served so get them in early. However, there are some rules.

-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 you and your bike.

-If you have won a Ride of the Month contest in the last 12 months 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.

-You must own the bike at the time of entry.

Once the deadline has passed, I will copy the entrant's posts to the voting thread to make voting easier.

Good luck and let's see some of those rides!

Talking

Back Story- I've been wanting a bike since i was 10 when my dad traded his ZX11 for a new zx12r, so naturally I had to go Kawasaki. I picked it up last fall at the end of the season and put on new Michelin Pilot Power tires and did an oil and brake pad change.
So here she is, I've named her Rhianna because shes black and blue and everybody wants to rider her ;-)
Modifications
Full Hindle High Mount Exhaust
Steel Braided Brake Lines
Scotts Stabilizer
Flushmount Front signals and Integrated signals in mirrors
Fender Eliminator and integrated rear turn signals
35W 6000k HIDs
Minor Tweaks
No Cut Frame Sliders
Smoked Windshield
Aftermarket Seat (ghost flames, but oh well)
Swapped fairing bolts out with black ones
Rear seat cowl
ZX636 stator cover
Black Adjustable Clutch/Brake Levers
*I'm going for a black and blue look with some carbon fiber detailing thoughout, which you can see. The one decal is cut from carbon fiber and I'm undecided if I'm gonna put more of the decal set on.
*The band-aid is from when the previous owner chipped the paint when he dropped his helmet. I kept it because it goes with my "Rhianna" theme

Create a photobucket account, upload your pics to photobucket, then copy and paste the IMG code from photobucket, in your post.
Hosted pics save space on the forums.

My first ever bike was an '02 F4i. I loved that thing! Until I laid my eyes on this machine. I never really thought I needed anything w/ this much power, but once I experienced the awesomely smooth and/or rip your shoulders outta the sockets acceleration this Kaw brings & the rockin' deal I got... I knew it was the one for me. Plus it is waaay more comfortable to ride than that little Honda. I brought it from Az to northern Italy where I ride in the Italian Alps, w/ a trip planned for this summer through Stelvio Pass. It gets attention no matter where we go. Over the last few years I have modded it here & there. Not one to be gawdy w/ bling, but I think subtle upgrades have done well for us, and I am sure I am not finished yet! Check it out:

'07 ZX-14 SE (Pearl Crystal White)
Stripped SE decals
Blacked out windscreen
Roaring Toyz triple tree nut cover
KR Tuned frame sliders
Flies removed
PC-III w/ custom map
BMC Street Air Filter
Clean Air mod
Black powdercoated heel guards
Black GP pegs
M4 GP slip-on exhaust
Speed Tactics fender eliminator
Michelin Pilot Power 2CTs
and... one aftemarket decal

Hey MotoHavoc, does that bike have a left side? Looks like you put up three of the same pic, bro. Also, I like your Photoshop cut/paste on the right mirror. Hiding your face for your protection I guess.

Nice rides everybody. It's nice to see a ZX14 that's not stretched. Maybe I'll throw my ride in when it's "done".

open the folder that contains all of your pics. Hit ctrl + A, then delete. that should work.

If not upload them to a server and use IMG code

Yes of course my bike has a left side, but I didn't use those pics originally because they didn't come out very well due to the location of the sun and the color was all messed up. And yes I photoshopped the mirror because I didn't wanna give KawiCycle any more pics of me to Photochop haha

Ha ha, nice. He texted me a pic of his Photoshop work and my response was, "damn, I'm glad I'm not your friend."

The bike looks good, man. The graphics are something I haven't seen before. I like different.
