The voting thread went together really quick this time, I must be getting used to the new format, thanks to everyone for clearly marking or positioning your voting photos, makes it so much easier!

Feel free to add more pics of your bikes to your posts on this thread now, or even riding videos if you finally get some good weather...

Thanks to everyone for participating and having fun with the build-off, makes it much more enjoyable when there are a few working along with you.

Wait I thought midnight was now?

I will bend the rules a bit for you Rob, redoing the voting thread now with your bike included! :thumbsup:

Thank you very much. I could have sworn PST was only 1 hour ahead of CST and it was 10:59 here when I pushed send. Talk about cutting it close.

Well I guess I didn't cut it close. I just sorta hacked it in after
