Wrapping up another good year of 2-Stroke motoring, the honor of 2012 2StrokeWorld Bike Of The Year goes to Joken and his fantastic concoction!  (I still don't know what I should call it.)  You've seen it, it's bloody awesome.  This is, like, you know, what we all hope Yamaha would be making NOW, the 21st century RD/RZ.  And that's exactly what's really cool about this bike, it looks so well put together, as if it just came off line this morning.  A really amazing bike, and it presses every right button in our 2-stroke oil filled brains, that's why it is a deserving winner of our Bike Of The Year.  Congratulations!

As always, thanks to John at Economy Cycle for continuing to be our beloved sponsor, and for providing us with a kick ass prize package for this contest. John is another gracious and generous 2-stroker with a lot of knowledge and most of the parts, accessories, attire we could need.  And he's also a Parts Unlimited dealer! Give Economy Cycle a chance with your next order, and remember all forum members enjoy a 10% discount on every order excluding vehicles! Discount code for checkout is 2SW or just email or call Economy Cycle.

For winning the contest, John is generously providing Joken with:

-A 20% discount on any order except vehicles!
-Motion pro dual drive L-handle wrench set. one 3/8 drive & one 1/4 inch drive
-Set of motorcycle jumper cables
-Set of tie-downs
-Classic motorcycle manufacturer T-shirt
-Quick mix 2 stroke fuel mix bottle
-Assorted decals/stickers





Thanks so much John!  And congratulations Joken!

Joken,
Congratulations. You have talent and taste. Some day when I find a mechanic again I plan to replicate it. I just wish I could still ride! But dreaming is almost as good and much safer.  ;)
Keep it on the pipe!
