Voting is live!
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

My criteria generally runs...
1) 2stroke?
2) Yamaha?
3) Which one would I most like to ride?

No surprise where my vote landed ;D

Good Luck to Everyone though ;)

Well, hello...came here to vote and there's my KLR.  Heck of a way to start the new year, thanks a lot for the nominations guys.  Humbled and very grateful, did not see that coming.  Good luck to all!

Here's another -



Did a bunch of work on this KLR - it's a '00 C model which is pretty rare.  Not sure they sold it in the States, and only here in Canada for a couple of years.  Which made finding parts a bit of a challenge.  Engine's bored out to 685 with a Wossner piston - that took care of any engine vibrations (it's a much lighter piston) and also gave it some more torque.  Bike entirely stripped down, powder coated frame, Lexx exhaust, Shinko rubber, modified arirbox, Doohickey, rebuilt brakes, custom tank, fenders, badges and trim...load of other stuff that's all a bit of a blur.  And Biltwell kung-fu grips.  In oxblood, FTW.

Close!  For first and second anyway!  Nice win Rusnak and well deserved, great looking bikes both guys.  Congratulations!  Send me your address Rusnak and I'll get your coupon in the mail (I'll pm you too)

Yes, that was close. Congrats Rusnak! The only thing I find disappointing is that only 24 people voted, out of how many???? Kind'a sad. If we could get half the group to vote, well THAT would make a contest.

Agreed, and that seems to be more or less the same number every contest. I'm guessing its largely the same 24 or so people every time.

My math shows 34 voters...but we are splitting hairs. 34 is disappointing.
