NW&NWA Bike of the Region 2010

Okay so we all know that it's 2011, but the time has come, somewhat belatedly, to decide who will take the Bike of the Region crown for 2010.
In 2009 Woody suddenly appeared on the forum with his DeKerf Generation and took a deserving win.

Image
Poll here: --> http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=83740

Can Chris successfully defend his 2009 title amongst undoubtedly strong competition and my Saracen Sahara...?

2010 Submissions

All the 'Bike of the Ride' winners from 2010 get automatic entry, so we already have 13 bikes in the poll.
However everyone from the NW&NW area can openly submit up to two bikes.
So if you haven't won a Bike of the Ride award then you can still submit two bikes into the competition.
If any of your bikes have won a Bike of the Ride award, then they go in automatically and you can still enter another two bikes.

This means that HarryCrumb could have up to five bikes in the poll with his three Bike of the Ride winners along with his two open submissions. Clear?

The rules:
- Only two photos per bike entered please.
- Bikes entered last year can be entered again.
- Bikes must have been owned by the entrant at some point during 2010.
- No beards.

So let's see what you've got...

(and remember it's just for fun)

Nice work Martin. That brings your tally to a respectable and potentially vote splitting 5 bikes.

I hope you know what you're doing...
