Bike of the Year 2009 Winner

Well i'd like to 'officially' congratulate shoboshi (january 2009 bike) as the winner of the 2009 BIKE OF THE YEAR.

It's a well deserved win and thanks to all that voted.
It was a very tough contest this year with all monthly winners of a very high standard.
Look out 2010.

Thanks Guys...

Did I win the 2 weeks in an Asian massage parlour...?....No? ...

Oh well.. Back on track.............



To all the people that voted for my bike I'd like to say a big Thanks.

After building her and then having her written off and going through the same process again was a bit ...er... stressful. But she's back together and ready to rock again!

There were some very, very nice bikes in this years BOTY comp and everyone was worthy of winning. I'd be happy to be the owner of any of them and I'm sure each owner is.
I'm pleased people took time to appreciate what each member has done and I think that shows in the quality of each bike.

Naturally, I'm over the moon. A great way to start the New Year....

Once again, Many Thanks..... and look out for next years revisions.

I'm sure I won't be the only one trying to dream up something new!.....

Happy New Year and stay safe.........


Norm......

I didn't get to vote, and it's still the 31st

Nah... seriously: Great job Ron and Greg on organizing this all. I hope it just gets better. And congrats to all the Bike of the Month entries and winners, for showing us what you've done with your machines

WOW! What a great ride big time... You have put together a great bike and raised the bar pretty high. Your attention to detail is spectacular and it shows everywhere.

What I like best about your ride is that you and I have the same taste in breaks and suspension... I love going fast but I like to know I can stop!!! Later - R1MEC
