   Congratulations to the winner and all BOTY participants. I appreciate the work, vision, money and dedication involved in each machine and every bike here is special. 
If the things you own end up owning you, it's better to be owned by some cool things.

Hi all,
I'd like to thank everyone for the support in this year's poll. I think every bike would be a worthy winner. The work put into these machines by their owners is more than a labour of love, it's a testament to the enduring attraction of these four cylinder machines and the hold they have on so many of us. I'd be proud to be an owner of any of those machines, and the many others which feature on this forum.
Have a great Xmas and best wished to all for 2020
Andy
