Thanks.

What's funny, is I really debated voting for you. I really like the drifter look you did. Specially since you did the fringe work yourself.

Wow this is a tough one. What's cool is, there are a lot of UNIQUE bikes this time around. I said this in the other thread but, anyone can buy parts and slap them on. What's cool is, bikes where guys put something on that wasn't supposed to fit (and made it look like it was), made something new entirely, or spent hours and hours finely installing minute details. Superb machines all of you. There can only be one winner, but I sincerely encourage ALL of you to re-post your bikes next month. It'd be a shame not to have a couple of BOTM winners out of this batch.

It took a lot to talk my wife into posing for me.

She was also going to put her chaps on and pose with bikini/chaps. How hot would THAT have been?

But people starting driving over near us to see what was going on, and she was getting self conscious of all the guys staring at her as she's posing.

It is one of my favorite pictures though. And like I said.. I titled it "The Two Things I Ride The Most"

In the BOTM thread, I posted a low resolution vid of the LED's at night.

I was asked if I could post a higher resolution one.

So, I took a new one. It's about the same length as the other one, but it's much higher resolution.

And hence, much larger file size.

It gives a pretty good resemblance of what the bike looks like at night.

And you can see why it took me over a month to do the LEDs. I didn't just toss them on.

(click on the image for the new video.)
