It's a tough one. But I'm not a fan of the fancy front brake rotors. That was my determining factor. I'd kill to have either one in my stable though.

Unfortunately, there was not too much turn out in votes for both semi-finals.
Out of 3483 members, semi-finals 1 was decided by 10 votes, and semi-finals 2 was decided by 12.
And potentially, the same members may have voted in both polls.
I sort of expected more.

Bmiller hands down. he has more in his exhaust than two eleven does in his exhaust and front brake rotors together. Plus those wheels are hardly ever on an RC(his is the first time I have ever seen it)

Two eleven's bike is clean but having such a clean bike then putting Hindle Exhaust on it just turns me off.

The Hindles fell off just as soon as I was able to find an absolutely pristine set of Sato Titanium Lows...

I wasn't asked for an update on the bike so I am not sure how the rules go, but she's all tight and right now!

Merry Christmas, and I am honored to even have my bike considered!!!

Thanks,

211.

I think it would be more interesting if each entry had a list of their important mods. I don't mean a long laundry list like flapper mod or resevior covers, I mean stuff like Millers rims, and Griffs Sato's. It's like looking a car and not being able to see under the hood. I'm with SubSailor, it's a little sad how few members will vote. Maybe figure out a way to keep the voting thread on top of the ActiveTopics. Like a sticky.

Anyway, these are two gorgeous bikes. And I know both you guys have put a lot into them. Well Done! I gotta go for the '03. I remember when b.miller got those rims and posted about it. I was so jealous!!! Me want's some super light rims! But then again, I remember when Griff got those coveted Sato's...

I invite anyone to list their modification, and have posted their mods when sent to me.
I'll modify my monthly posting to request list of mods.
Besides the photo, it lists ones work.
