 Thanks guys. Always an honor just to be nominated.

 It's really hard to capture the detail in the tank/paint. My GF took some cool pics. She's better at that than I am.

Agreed, the gold adds a bit of class to an already nice bike.

Both are amzing bikes with beautiful details and craftmansship. Still, the tank of the 550 is just something else. This is pure art and something i have never seen here in Austria.
Great work of both of you guys!!!

Cheers

 Holy crap! That was a close one. I can't believe I won! Especially against such a nice 750F!
 I'd be proud to ride/own seanbarney's bike any day.

 Thanks to all that voted , and not just for me. It's about time we saw some action in the BOTM contest.

This was the closest of all time so it's congratulations to both of you.
Don and myself being Moderators, can see the vote count from start to finish and neither of you were more than 2 votes apart.
The lead swapped and changed near enough every day, give yourselves a pat on the back, you both deserve it.
