BOTM October voting

YOU ARE VOTING ON OCTOBER BIKE OF THE MONTH









OWNER: CalgaryGord

2006 Roadstar









OWNER: 87stocker

2008 V-Star 1300 Tourer



Bought the bike on the coldest day last winter, last year. Backed the trailer into the shop and modded before I rode it. Pipes and Programmer before I even hit the pavement. Put 10000 kms on it this year and wore the Excedra right off. Commanders now. Home made intake(details found in a post in the mod section.







OWNER: derailed75

06' Road Star Silverado



changed the seats out to non-studded. Painted the rims black and changed the tires out to black walls. Added Tuskayu strong hard bags. Reckless fairing Viper Red paint. A few custom decals. Only changes I have planned still to do are Freedom true duels, PCS lowering bars, Rear fender rack and Race tech springs.







OWNER: Jkden

2002 RS Warrior



Eng size: 102 cu.in
Modifications: Stage 1 kit with V&H bigshots, Churchkey VBAK kit, coil relocation, Powercommander PCIII custom mapped.
Accessories: T Bars, quick release saddlebags, lower fairing, upper mini fairing, relocated brake caliper and custom rear brake reservoir relocation, lots of blacked out bits and pieces
Length of time to build: 6 montsh
And the story/inspiration/additional comments: Took this as a stock bike and slowly have been customizing to my liking... thanks to many hours spend with the brothers at rswarrior.com. She rips!







OWNER: Jkden

2008 Road Star



Eng size: 102 Cu. in.
Modifications: Yamaha speedstar longshot exhausts, 45mm throttlebody and y pipe, Baron VBAK, PC III custom mapped
Accessories: Granucci seat, lots of chrome bits added, beach cruiser bars, custom paint
Length of time to build: 16 months
And the story/inspiration/additional comments: I bought this as a salvage unit, was in an accident per the attached pictures. As a labour of love I have been slowly replacing the bent metal, added some shiny stuff and some small performance mods, and now she is back on the road! I had a blacked out Warrior, so my goal was to make this one as retro California Cruiser style as possible with lots of shine. I like the result, not overstated but just very very cool. I hope you like my story of not letting a 'Star die, but resurrecting again! Now I can pick which bike I go for a rip on, sweeeet!

I honestly can't believe only 18 people have voted. It takes a couple seconds.
