None here stand way apart from the others, IMO, so I went with prujd1 due to his tidy garage

All nice bikes, nice backgrounds too. Yes indeed a tidy shop is always cool to see!
Tough choice.
That black bike is really popping on my screen! ...

I think Breal has a little more project time into his from what I can tell. And the Shorty Akros killed it for me, as well as the lowered front end.

Is it lowered? I'd guess that he did that for handling purposes, not aesthetics.
I have no problem with shortened cans, usually that means a damaged part has been cut off to salvage a good looking can. The fat stubby look is fine in a lowmount for the piggy. imo

SubSailor if I may respond to some of these comments:

First off thank you to you guys being complementary & encouraging as every bike submitted for these polls are great bikes & my bike is certainly an unfinished work in progress

Secondly to address the negative comments this poll is for the appreciation of a nice RC not the most tidy garage contest .. Project time spent can not possibly be known just by looking at 1 pic .. I wouldn't be surprised if my RC with ugly shorty cans/ Akra system & tune sounds better & pushes more power than whatever you may be riding so please don't criticize mine or anyone else's bike with negatives just vote & move on

List of mods done prior to that picture
Full Akra system 2 into 2
Power commander III with Akrapovic map
Pair mod
Flapper mod
Soft rev limiter mod
Black hotbodies undertail
Scott's steering stabilizer
Carbon fiber airbox
Carbon fiber ram air duct
Carbon fiber radiator scoop
Carbon fiber gauge surround
520 chain conversion with -1/ +1 sprocket change
Upgraded headlights
Smoked windscreen
Shorai lightweight battery
Lowered 1" in front
LED front blinkers

I guess you'd be very upset if somebody stated that all three bikes are similar but voted for yours because of your tidy yard

BTW, pretty sure it's your chopped off stubby cans that some don't like.

Extrapolated it's not about the nice yard or the oil stains on your garage floor it's supposed to be about the BIKES .. & for the shorty Akras they're not the look for everyone but they mate perfect with the full system & they sound freaking mean .. I really don't care if you like them or not I'm only suggesting if you don't have anything nice to say to your RC brothers then keep your negative comments to yourself, vote & move on

Says you ...

BTW, I didn't see one thing negative about saying the guy's garage is tidy.
