This is rswarrior.com's Warrior of the Year contest.

You may only vote once in the poll above for those that have won Warrior of the Month in 2015.

***Unlike Warrior of the Month you may discuss this topic in the replies but Use the poll above to vote. ***


ONLY VOTES MADE IN THE POLL ABOVE WILL COUNT AND BE TALLIED.

Once again, the winner will receive a $100 Visa/MC Gift Card from Vertical Scope, our site owner.


In the event of a tie, the members involved in the tie will placed in a separate topic that will be given 96hrs for everyone to vote on them. If that results in a tie, then the Moderators will have the deciding votes. We don't want to have to do that, so make sure it's not a tie. :)


***Voting ends in 30 days, on 02-20-2016 at 10:11 PM and the winner will be announced.***

IMO, all are more than worthy of being WOTY, but in a cheesy Highlander reference, "There can only be one..." :D I'm quite the purist when it comes to the Warrior's overall look compared to it's rivals. I chose Racerxjim, because it's original overall, but dipped in awesome!!! The paint is one of my favorites on the forum, the chrome to color ratio is spot on, and front to rear, it's such a clean bike.

I picked Gilly because he did everything that we all want to do to our bike. Raked, big front tire. Morton's. The whole bit. His bike is what everyone wants their bike to look like .
Speak for yourself. I love the fact that Warriors out handle all similar bikes. Big front wheels and raked front ends negate that. Not that Gilly's bike isn't pretty, but that's not my dream bike.

Chill out bro.


Ok, speaking for myself, and at least one other person who voted for Gilly when he won WOM, I like what he's done with his bike.

I love the look of Gilly's bike, but I'm with Shameless on the handling. A raked front looks cool, but that's not why I bought a Warrior, or what I want from mine.

I'm leaning toward Racerxjim's bike. I love the chrome and clean look. The nitrous bottles look great. However, I'm not really a big fan of the paintjob. It's not how I would have gone.

One of the great things about this forum is there is info on so many mods and help from so many members, and you can customize your bike to YOUR liking. :D

Too many awesome choices my heads gunna explode, I am a big fan of overkill, love big over the top bravado! From Godzilla to KISS! So when I see MMFB's Turbo machine it draws me that way, then I see the REPR machine and OMG that fender and those bars, then there's Gilly's fantastic creation, holy sh!t, and rij1's ride, I've seen it in person, I've ridden next to it, heard it roar, it's a monster, and all the rest are just so bitchin.....in the words of Ozzy, don't ask me, I DON'T KNOW!

Joeyalessi,
And that my friend is what makes this forum so awesome. Such a variety and wealth of knowledge. I went from knowing absolutely zero about motorcycles (yes, this is my first bike) to designing, fabricating and actually putting a Turbo on the Warrior (what a learning curve!). Absolutely no way I could have done it by myself. I'm pretty sure anyone who wins WOM or WOY will say the same thing. Amazing forum for an amazing ride.

You said it bro! I remember when I first got the bike and one of the guys on the sales floor said....check out rswarrior.com to see some cool warriors, so when I first logged on I was like WOW, my new bone stock warrior can become this! Little did I know then what serious potential this bike had to personalize it and make it apart of you, the people on this forum, every one of them, are awesome.

Agree with you there, I wouldn't say that everyone wants a big front wheel and raked forks.

But with that said, I really like what Gilly has done to his bike. What I love is that his bike is "built" by himself and truly his own. From installing the engine mods (And documenting the process for everyone else), to his custom Morton's that he shortened the tips on and had custom flanges machined... And countless more mods, I think I remember him saying that his bike is so modified that the Yamaha dealership refuses to even touch it anymore? :cool: Honestly, regardless of what his bike looks like he's a seriously fantastic (And active) member on this site, and he's just a pleasure to associate with. That's why he gets my vote.

WOTY is a tough decision ... I would love to see all these bikes in person for I know pictures do no show how nice these bikes are in real life ... Gillys Bike is for sure one ride I would like to see in person and if I can ever get down His way I will for sure make it a priority .. I have however seen richgetsy's bike and it is one of the nicest ( if not the nicest ) Bikes I have seen in my lifetime .. His bike is extremely clean,well thought out and very well done ..The Guy is a perfectionist ...Like I said it is hard to look at pictures an be able to tell just how nice some of these bikes truly are ...That said rich gets my vote this Year .....
