**Bike of the Month** *December 2012*

Name: Dan
User Name: I JET
Location: New South Wales , AUSTRALIA
Bike: 2012 Motorsports
Class: Street

We have a real sharp entry this time around, this race inspired S1000RR sure looks the part. Congratulations to I Jet on a well rounded and stunning looking bike!

Submission
The main reason I want my bike to win is to share with the rest of the forum members, the modifications I have done to get my bike looking how it does today. These forums are such a great place to get ideas and info before you start modding up your bike.

Every accessory has been well thought out. First to improve performance, then appearance and most important aspect which was to personalise the bike to make it stand out above the rest. I'm really happy with how the bike looks and goes. It's a real head turner and the AR exhaust has an epic sound to match the looks. I've tried to achieve a racing style look without going too over the top with stickers and such. I ride this bike religiously, I'm always waiting for the weekend to start. Future mods include a carbon rear hugger, chain guard, front indicator block offs and some HP Rear Sets.

Kind Regards
Dan

Cheers mate, as per the Austin Racing website the full gp3 s/s system is about $1850 AUD. I already had the gp ultimate muffler from my 2010 so it was a bit cheaper. Bit more expensive than other full systems but you do get to personalise it a fair bit with the different can options and exhaust exit styles. And they look sexy and sound awesome, cant complain.
