Bike of the Year 2011 Winner

And the winner is knackers with 34 votes, congrats mate you pulled it off

the story & specs-

Was away for a week on the bikes in 2005 with the wife and ventured down to the news agencey to pick up a copy of the Australian Motocycle News. On the front page was a picture of a special limited edition R1SP, well it was love at first sight, Ohlins, Marchesini wheels, slipper clutch & special paint job. Arrived home wacked a grand deposit down 4 months before they landed. Before I even got the bike I was on the web buying parts worth around $3500.00 then was told that it was not a certainty that I would even get one. WTF??? Apparently all the names went into a helmet and the Manager of Yamaha Australia drew out 24 names because that was the allocation, I came out second so you little ripper, mine, mine, mine the precious. I am constantly detailing it and this is it so far...
