Ride of the Month 

April 2013 Ride of the Month

For the first time in the history of the Ride of the Month contest, the winner is not a car, but a bike. The April Ride of the Month winner Matthew actually started out with cars when he entered the scene.  He started with a Mitsubishi Eclipse and other import cars, but after a while wanted something else.  Matthew wanted a ride he could modify that yielded more powerful results.

He decided on a GSXR 600, even though he knew the displacement was small, he still chose to pursue and achieve his dream with this model. He thought it would be cool to build a smaller bike that could give the bigger guys a run for their money, and do something out of the ordinary.

When he first got the bike it was an ugly white that reminded him of Crest toothpaste. He went to his friend Ken from Hitlist Ink and got himself a custom airbrush job of skulls and negative stars that fit his style.

Matthew has had his bike for year and has made some progress on his list, but he’s not finished yet.  He recently got a nitrous kit but wasn’t able to complete the install for the shoot. By the time this article is released, the nitrous kit should be installed.  He wanted it to add a little extra boost to make sure all you see is his taillights pulling away. He plans to rebuild the motor with forged internals to make it bullet proof along with a turbo.  He also plans on stretching the bike another 6 inches for the racing aspect and bikes looks. Make sure to keep your eyes open, you will be seeing this bike hitting the tracks!
