Honestly, it would be a little weird if the VTRotY didn't look like a VTR.


I still voted for mine though... cause this is how I feel when I'm riding it

Thanks for the vote!

These are all very nice examples of well sorted VTR's but my vote goes to the lifelong project with no end in sight... Mikstr.

It's just a well sorted, beautiful VTR.... an ongoing project that has as much blood sweat and tears into it as it does sweet aftermarket parts, one-off mods and hard earned cash! KUDOS Mikstr!

As much as I like my hawk, I still had to vote for sparxx, his bike is just badass! Maybe I can get the cleanliness is next to Godliness award.

Thanks Daniel

I take a great deal of pride in what I have accomplished with my VTR, as I am sure all the others in the running (indeed most members here) do also.

As you have alluded to, it is an on-going project (OCMD remember, lol) and has evolved some more since the pic was taken last spring, notably with the removal of the EBC race rotors and their replacement with Braketech Axis Cobra rotors (with black carriers), the removal of some red bling bits (and replacement with either black or blue stuff), the removal of some stickers (part of my "going stealth" campaign) and the replacement of the front signals with flush-mount LEDs (set to strobe). Internally, the cams have been re-timed and tappets have been replaced with DLC-coated units (end result is a freeer-spinning mill with a more muscular mid-range). I also toyed with an Ignitech programmable ignition unit but couldn't make it work (yet!). MY objective (realisable based on what I feel in the saddle) is to break the magical (for me) 130 bhp and 80 lb-ft barriers.

Good luck to all participants on jobs well done

cheers

I like the time stamp as well. Congrats to all that have won it but if I did I think I would put a little decal on the bike that says I did.

Guys,
A buddy of mine made me the sticker after he saw my bike on Superhawk.Forum. I'll see if I can get him to make a similar one for the VTROY winner.

mikstr-Post some current pics, I'd love to see them.

Too bad PappySmears and hawkster didn't get their bikes entered, maybe next year. Those two Shawks are awesome.

Firedog55 your bike amazes me at how clean it is every time I see those pics. It's also just a great looking bike with tasteful upgrades. I just about started to vote for you, and then I started to wonder if you even ride that bike?! Haha!

jaypro-I ride it, not as much as my other bikes though. I have been accused of having OCD (with good reason), I spend as much time cleaning, polishing and waxing it as riding it.

Thanx! Totally digg your paintjob. Nice combo. All bikes look awesome and clean. Great to see that so many people put so much effort in their bikes to make something personal. I still have some stuff to do. Not happy with some of the parts. Some more pics:

Congratulation everyone on such fine work.
It is very hard to pick a winner because they are all quite different builds.

firedog,
I see a few blades of grass creeping onto your driveway. You'd better get out the edger.

VTRsurfer-No worries, every thing is frozen dead right now. Besides I'm working on turbo charging my '05 Mustang GT right now and don't have time for yard work.

I envy the cleanliness of your bike... and lack of corrosion.

tough call

sparxx, your creation is very nice, kinda resembles the Benelli TNTs headlight and side wings.

The 2011 Benelli TnT R160 - 2011 Benelli TnT R160 Naked Bike Now Available in the US - autoevolution

tough field this year with so many great hawks. I hate to have to vote for a particular one because everyone is a winner its own different way. Milkster and firedog(wow-could eat off this) bikes are the epitome of tasteful upgrades, moore and sparxx have created beautiful nakeds (except fro that big dirty footprint on moore's seat), and inde and hawk bikes are master pieces of embellishment.

These sterling examples are testament to the strong and lasting appeal of this great motorcycle.

I wanted to vote for Mikstr, but then I saw Sparxx. How the hell did I miss that this year? All of these bikes are great, but I had to give Sparxx my vote. Great job you guys. You give me motivation on what to do to my bike. Thanks
