After the deadline has passed, I will edit this thread so that the entries will be contained here in the voting thread to make voting quick and easy.

Thank you and Good luck to the contestants!


Here they are:


Joy Coyote's ZX-7R:






No special parts, modifications, or customization. Just a stock L model (except for missing lower fairing graphics). I see all of these cool bikes on the forum and I’m amazed at the amount of work and talent that goes into them. Custom paint and bodywork, engine swaps, someone is even doing a fuel injection conversion? Holy crap! I was happy that I was able to figure out why my headlights weren’t working and not have to pay someone to fix it (admittedly with a little help from my forum friends). I learned a long time ago that for someone of my limited mechanical abilities I’m better off leaving my bikes stock. Unless you’re doing track days, stock ZX’s are basically unbreakable and require very little attention. Yet they go like stink, handle well (when the L model came out in ‘93, Scott Russell reportedly said it handled better than his Muzzy prepared ’92), have great suspension and brakes, and are as much fun to ride as any bike you can find. Which is why I think my stock L model deserves to be the ROTM: as a reminder to everyone just how awesome these bikes were right out of the box! That and because every time I step into the garage and see those dual headlights looking at me from beneath that stupid/crazy/in-your-face lime green livery, it brings me back to 1995 and makes me feel 20 years younger.

My bike would like to thank you for your support. It says “We won with young. We won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated.”

:laugh2: Don't worry it happened to me (and others) several months in a role when old classics won the titles.
There will always be people who go for the stockers if for no other reason than nostalgia. Even with sport bikes, because so few remain without being crashed or modified. That said, if The Bad One ever finishes his carb to fuel injection conversion, that bike will be a shoo in for ROTY. It would get my vote.
