The winner of our 6th annual Warrior of the Year is MMFB!

It was another very close race this year, but MMFB (Mark) won with 13 votes. Not only is Mark an active and helpful member of our little tribe here on the forum but he has a wicked Warrior well deserved of the title of Warrior of the Year. It's hard to believe that his Warrior is his very first motorcycle. In his first post from 5 years ago (see below) you'll see how he even started modding it before he even rode it! The mod bug strikes early around here. He eventually would teach himself how to and then eventually make his own turbo setup without buying a prefabbed kit!

For winning Warrior of the Year, Mark was going to get a $100 gift card donated by the site owners Vertical Scope. But he PM'd me and requested that his winnings be sent to our runner-up, Milkman (Monty) as he thought Monty could use it in the Ukraine with his limited resources more than he could. How's that for showing the true essence of brotherhood that makes this site the awesome place that it is!!


Congrats brother!

First Post on the forum

I brought my new ride home this evening. This is my first bike. Always wanted to have one and now I've finally done it. I've only ridden a few times and I'm planning on taking the ABATE course as soon as it's available. I've already started to mod the bike and I haven't even ridden it yet. It is an '06, red with Vance and Hines Big Shot, Fi2000, aftermarket handlebars, etc. It's in really good shape. I'll have to post pictures soon.

Thanks everyone! It's both humbling and an honor to have won. I really appreciate everything this forum has taught me. There are some exceptional individuals on here. Looking forward to continuing to mod the ride. To me that's half the fun. Monty, I'm glad you're going to put the funds to good use. I excited for you and your adventures. Please start a thread about them so we can all live vicariously through you my friend. Thanks again guys!
