Yes, I was thinking you were one of the few to have 2 BOTM here in the same year, (there are a couple others that come to mind) but it is quiet remarkable as to how different each bike is!

I loved that monster before it was even finished. Can’t think of a better BOTM recipient.

Bon Appetit has had a great summer!
She's been to a few expensive buffets and emerged as the cherry on the cake!

This summer has also been really busy with this GL1100. Along with amassing over 3400 miles, there's been endless roads made behind the scenes and hopefully by next weekend, this can be wrapped up and there will be an update. action1

In the meantime, Bon Appetit continues to eat up the highways and byways!

Shame on you picking on that poor Pontiac. Love the helmet. Love the motorcycle. Love the story. Love the photography.

Absolutely stunning photo racing the "old pontiac"! May blow it up and paste on my shop wall (permission requested). Glad to see you are getting recognition from other quarters of our hobby. Your imagination and workmanship definitely deserve recognition as "bike of the year" IMHO.

Lol sparkyrasmus! The photos are a challenge and not sure they'll ever quite reach the "signed" pinnacle - but I'll keep striving towards that goal. I do appreciate the encouraging words - thanks man!
