12 months. 12 bikes. let's find out your favorite from this past year! you are voting on all the past winners of 2011. the poll is broken up in 2 threads but there can be only one overall winner.

Owner: StarParts

it is a canteen (mounted to the frame). I can use it for anything to drink, I use it for iced Redbull, But you can use it as an extra gas can on the road for long hauls. It was my choice to use it for a drink canteen, cause if I used it for extra gas, that would be the only thing you can hold in it after that. Unless I take up drinking gas. I drink an occassional Martini, does that count??!! LOL Sean at www.StarParts.org I can make ya one if you like?

Owner: Kiroo
My 2009 V-Star 950
Not alot of mods,just a solo mustang seat with back rest & rear fender bib,run a national cycle chopper screen on the long hauls,will eventually be changing the handle bars (undecided) & muffler (cobra slash down).
Just like to keep it simple but effective.
My bike at Hastings Marina,Western Port,Melbourne,Victoria,Australia
Took a short ride down the peninsula of Port Philip bay & Western Port,the Western Port part of the ride is the best,great scenary, ocean views & good variations of riding conditions.

So how does this work excatly?? Do we pick one from group 1 and then another for group 2 and then later another poll of only 2 bikes (Group 1 top pick vs. Group 2 top pick)? Or have you not quite thunk it thru yet?

there are 12 bikes. a poll only allows 10 choices. a single post only allows 8 pictures. the math required 2 separate posts and threads. you can vote in each poll if you want, but it's the same poll just split in 2 because they all wouldn't fit together. you should only vote once since it's the same election and the one bike that has the most votes out of both threads will be the winner
