**BOTM** *March 2016*

Name: Alex Holdroyd
Username: Alex_UK
Location: London, UK
Year: 2012 Black, bought in 2014 totally stock. currently on 10,000miles.
Colour: HP4 Black Scheme
Class: Street / Trackday

Better late than never! Alex joined the forum a few days ago. His bike is a show stopper and made an impact right away. I had no submissions for BOTM so I chose Alex. With a bike like that I couldn't let it go. He has spent some big $$$ and this bike is a credit to his attention to detail. Best bike so far this year.

I have spent a lot on this bike. I think it should win because it has a unique scheme as far as I know. I'd like to think this is the bike BMW would have made if DDC didn't exist. The HP-Passive.

Next winter or during the year I intend to add a fuel controller to smooth out the map. Switching to Lightech frame protectors. Add a 2015 style carbon pillion cowl (on order).
