BOTM winner for June 2012 - SGT Rob

Congradulations to SGT Rob for winning June bike of the month.
I bought the bike new in March of 2010. In May 2010 I found out I was being deployed to Afghanistan for all of 2011. While in Afghanistan I started to envision what my bike would look like and started buying parts to build it when I got home. I returned from Afghanistan and started my build in January of this year. Here is what went into the build:

21" SMT rim Tribal design with contrast cut

Black fork lowers

Yaffe Contrasat cut Yafterburner upper fork covers

Yaffe 21" stretched front fender

Sinister Industries Pissed Off Bezel

Yaffe 10" Monkey Bars

Arlen Ness Rad III mirrors

Cee Baileys 14" windscreen

Clarion NZ 500 Head unit touch screen ipod control, video, and GPS Navigation

2 Rockford Fosgate PBR 300x4 Amps

2 Polk Audio MM651 6.5" Speakers in the fairing

2Polk Audio DB 651S Speakers in the inner fairing

2 Polk Audio MM 691 6x9 Speakers in the saddlebag lids

Lindby Engine Guard

Hells foundry hidden fairing supports

Yaffe Turn signal eliminators

Painted inner fairing

Demon Cycles 6.6 Gal Stretched tank

Custom seat by Danny Gray

Sinister industries stretched side covers

Wicked image Sniper Floor Boards

4" Stretched fender and bags with 12" recessed tail lights by True Kustom

Yaffe Phantom Bag Pipes

Yaffe Yafterburner Saddlebag latches

Yaffe Yafterburner Ignition cover

Skull horn cover

6x9 Saddlebag Speaker lids by

Xotic Customs 5" air suspension kit on the rear

Progressive Monotube suspension with 2" drop up front

Blue LED lights in fairing

Blue and white LED in speedo and tach by Guagemods

Blue LED's in headlights and under gas tank and bags from autozone with wireless control from Custom Dynamics

Black Levers and Black Diamond Grips from the MOCO

Black Paint by Eric in Frankfurt Illinois

Thats about all I believe. It took about 4 months to complete the build, much of that was waiting for the front rim to be cut and delivered. If anyone has any questions they can feel free to ask, as I said I am currently on a 6000 mile road trip with the bike checking out several of the national parks in southern Utah and AZ, I'll answer anything as soon as I have the time and capabilities. Thanks for your patience

Very cool man. Well done and congratulations. Try and not wheelie it though you may damage the touch screen.
