BOTM - June voting

YOU ARE VOTING ON JUNE BIKE OF THE MONTH

gonna do it kind of special this month. we've had 2 awesome 950s presented to us so let's see these 2 compete against each other! and since it's only 2 bikes in this month's competition, we're gonna show you a multitude of the pics they've submitted instead of just the customary single photo





OWNER: Kel

Year:2009
Make/Model: V Star
Eng size:950
Modifications: Custom paint job (candy burgundy and art) Vance and Hines Big Radius 2 into 2 pipes, headlight modulator
Accessories: Kuryakyn ISO Grips (black), Kuryakyn Throttle Boss (also black), Mustang Seat (passenger not installed yet)
Length of time to build: Purchased in October of 2012, ordered the paint job in December, first ride was on 8 May 2012
And the story/inspiration/additional comments: When I was twelve I was introduced to a barbed wire fence by a little 120cc mini bike. It not only hurt like hell (I still have the scars 16 years later) but it scared me away from bikes ever since. I hate being afraid of things, so I finally bought this bike. Needless to say I had no idea how to ride it, so while the paint was being applied I took the MSF Basic Riders Course. Talk about a confidence builder! When it finally came time to take my baby out I was rearing to go! A week and a half, and five hundred miles later my only regret is not jumping back on that little 120cc as soon as I healed up! Bonus points to whomever can point out where the skull comes from







ENJOY!! I know I am!!







OWNER: Low and Mean

We are a vendor and we did build this V Star 950 with a lot of our new product line. Hope you all like our V Star 950.

I think this is a cool one. Both are very nice bikes, some are into bikes like low and mean and some are not. LM's bike is bad ass!! But my taste is simple yet clean looking bike, just like this contest shows..... This will be a tough one, still not sure who to vote for LOL

I voted for Kel, seems like the right thing to do, I didn't know this would be a head to head match. I will forfeit if our V Star 950 wins, so I hope everyone votes for Kel!
Thanks for including us for the BOTM!
Here's a link to all the parts we put on this Custom V Star 950 give away motorcycle

Thanks L&M! However, if I win I want a fair fight lol everybody vote for the bike you want for this month. L&M put a lot of hard work into their bike, just as I put a lot of hard work towards paying for mine lol. Besides, it is exciting to watch this battle unfold! I didn't expect to do so well against such a sweet ride! Cast your vote, riders, may the best bike win!
