Hey y'all

The Rex has made the final 50 of the Carole Nash BGBT competition. Carole Nash is the largest bike Insurance company in the UK and their calendar is a pretty cool place to be!

There were a total of 2119 entries of all shapes and sizes, and I've made the final 50!

Now I REALLY need all of your 5 star ratings to win this thing.

The top 12 bikes will feature in the 2008 Carole Nash calender and be on diplay at the NEC show, and the overall winner will receive a trip to ANY MotoGP next season..

So please vote your little hearts out! 5 Stars all the way... (and a few 1's for the opposition, except the Katana, he should get at least 3 ). Apparantly you can vote more than once, but I couldn't possibly condone that ;)

Vote Here

Thanks chaps!

Voted again...lol

To me, this isn't even a case of voting for you just 'cause you're on here. There's only 3 or 4 bikes in there that I would even consider competition, and you've got them beat. You'd be getting my vote even if I didn't know you from here.

I've been moving stuff around on Photobucket, so now all my bike pics are in one place. Mix of stuff, mostly the ZRX in various stages of development, the 1100 I have and pics I took at the SF mag photoshoot (even the NWS ones ;) )

Well, since last night (at about 11pm UK time), the two busas and the harris fighter have picked up nearly 1000 votes between them...

But, thanks for voting guys! Should still make the top 12, I still think I'm running second even with the dodgy voting....

Remember, today is the last day of voting, and if you use Internet Explorer, you can vote, shut IE down, go back in, and vote again ;)

Essex Biker Wins Britain’s Got Biking Talent
- ‘Extreme’ Kawasaki ZRX Voted Bikers’ Favourite -

A Kawasaki motorcycle built by an Essex rider in tribute to his late mother has been voted by thousands of UK bikers as the nation’s ultimate two wheeled machine. Karl Galloway, of Takeley, beat over 1,500 competitors to take top prize in ‘Britain’s Got Biking Talent’, organised by Carole Nash, the UK’s biggest motorcycle insurance specialist and leading motorcycling magazine MotorCycle News (MCN).

Karl, 38, learnt at the Birmingham NEC’s International Motorcycle & Scooter Show that his modified 1200cc ZRX bike had taken the biggest slice of nearly 45,000 votes cast to win the contest. Carole Nash’s marketing director Warren Dickson and MCN editor Marc Potter presented him with a bumper prize package which included tickets, flights and accommodation for any Moto GP motorcycle race in the world. He also received a framed, professionally shot photograph of himself with his bike which will also appear in Carole Nash’s 2008 calendar and be hung on over 120,000 bikers’ walls. It will also be displayed on a special Britain’s Got Biking Talent stand (2J40) at the International Motorcycle Show until December 2nd.

Declaring himself “exceptionally proud” Karl, who has been biking since he was a teenager, commented: “The bike was built as a tribute to my mother who passed away last year. The small inheritance I received went 100 per cent into the bike and, for me, having it being appreciated by so many people is a great achievement and a perfect memorial.”

To take the prize Karl’s Kawasaki first had to win over an expert judging panel which included Mr. Dickson, MCN editor Marc Potter, British Superbike star Chris Walker, The Sun’s Biker columnist and former Gladiator Jane Omorogbe as well as motorcycle designers bike John Keogh, Glynn Kerr and Martin Longmore. The panel whittled the entrants down to a shortlist of 50 which were then open to a public vote.

Asked why he thought his bike was voted a winner, Karl, who has been biking since he was a teenager, said: “It’s special as it’s quite probably the most extreme ZRX in the world. Being a member of most of the owners clubs around the world, I know there isn't another ZRX that has the level of modifications that my bike has. It would appeal to those who like the performance of bikes, having over 170 brake horse power at the wheel, and also to those who like the streetfighter or naked type of bike. It's one of those bikes that on the face of it looks different, but it's not until you look closer that the amount of work, and the detail, becomes apparent.”

Carole Nash’s Warren Dickson agreed: “Karl’s done an absolutely magnificent job, creating a beautiful, intricately detailed bike which certainly packs some power. There can be no greater achievement in the biking world than having your own lovingly created machine voted for as the nation’s finest, not just by legendary motorcycle designers and experts, but by your biking peers.”

The Carole Nash calendar is a “must have” for committed British bikers and traditionally features the world’s finest and most exotic motorcycles. This is the first time the motorcycle insurance giant has opened up its pages to the biking public. “I have had Carole Nash calendars for as long as I can remember,” said Karl. “It’s always been a highlight to see what’s in there and there’s always one on my garage wall.” No doubt he can’t wait for next June when his own bike is the monthly pin up!

Whilst Karl took top prize there were 11 runners up – including Chelmsford rider Steve Fisk’s Suzuki Hayabusa - who will also feature in the calendar which will be distributed free to visitors at the International Motorcycle & Scooter Show and may also be ordered from www.carolenash.com for £3.99
including postage and packing. All the winning machines can also be viewed at www.carolenash.com (from Friday November 23rd 2007.)
