**Bike of the Month** *November 2012*

Name: John E.
User Name: DUCKsMaNe
Location: California, USA
Bike: 2011 Light Grey Metallic
Class: Track

This was record month for BOTM submissions, they were 6 submissions and it was really hard to pick a winner. It came down to a complete submission that help me make the final choice for Novembers's BOTM. Let's give it up for DucksMANe for an awesome submission and bike!

Submission
I've been meaning to submit my baby for a long time now but haven't had the time to submit it. This beautiful s1krr was purchased brand new August 3rd 2011 from San Francisco BMW. This bike has been nothing but wonderful. Hands down the greatest bike I have ever ridden. I believe my bike should be the BOTM because this bike has been a straight up work horse. Commuter, canyon carver, track day beast, you name it, it has done it. I believe simple is sexy and even though my bike is pretty simple it does have a my own little unique twist when it comes to my street bodywork with the eye patch, number plate and tribute to my boy who was recently hospitalized from an accident. He's doing a lot better though so thank God. I recently decided to keep this bike solely on the track and now have custom painted Hotbodies race bodywork on there now. Around 16k on the odometer.









Upgrades:
*Hotbodies GP Clear Windscreen
*Hotbodies Race Bodywork
*CRG Shorty Levers
*GPR Stabilizer
*Driven D-Axis Rearsets(GP Shift)
*R&G Case Covers
*R&G Passenger Peg Covers
*Full Titanium Akrapovic Evolution Exhaust System with Conical Muffler
*BMC Race Air Filter
*Dyno Jet PCV
*Driven Sprocket Conversion -1 +3 with 520 EK Chain
*Stock Clip Ons Modified Outward for more aftermarket clip on feel
*Ohlins Pressurized Front Cartridges
*Ohlins TTX Rear Shock
*Attack Triple Trees

*Dyno Tuned by Alex at Fastline in Fremont, CA
84ft lbs of Torque
190 Wheel Horsepower

Great looking bike!!! And best of luck to you next season too.

BTW, the helmet is badass, but I may be biased
