Unofficial DO THE TON Bike of the Year - 2016
« on: Jan 06, 2017, 15:58:17 »
OK... with a little prompting from grandpaul, I've put up a Bike of the Year vote. As far as I know, we haven't done this before and it's not an official thing, but it seemed fun, so here we go.

Voting ends at the end of January.

The winner has been promised a signed copy of grandpaul's book as well as a CAD drawing of the winner's bike.

To sweeten the pot, I'll throw in a photomosiac render of the winner's bike as well as a 7" sealed beam LED headlight.

Cool idea!

It would be awesome if we could put together a DTT calendar for the following year with all of the BOTM winners. I know I'd be down for one.

Logan's done that before. I think I had a calendar from 2014?

If we thought monthly voting was hard....annual voting is...well, 12x harder  ;)

I've voted for the bike I think epitomises the 'ton up culture' as it stands today.

Pick a mundane model with a cracking engine, improve and update the suspension to modern day standards, overcome engineering issues with integrity and innovation, then assemble it with glorious attention to detail.....all this carried out in his home garage as well.

Overall concept, build quality, engineering integrity, attention to detail and final finish all earn my admiration and vote....can you guess which one :-)

Damn. This is shaping up to be a very close race.

The top NINE bikes are all within two votes of one another.

Get those votes in!

I must have looked through the list a hundred times!

Finally made a decision for the Yamaha.
