There can be only 10 quads in the poll. Not everyone can make it in.

i agree...i heard it was because it doesn't have enough stickers....go figure...And i thought having twice the motor of anyone else would give me a slight edge...oh well, i'll be back in a few months or whenever i can with a few more stickers, that might help...

no need to be a whiner about it, if they can only fit 10, and you were last entry, then that means your out, your bike is nicer than some others in the poll, so dont cry about it

personally my vote goes to moto49x

WOW!!! I thought I had a nice quad, but the others are just great. Mine is a little different from the norm though, being setup to run Baja and all.

When I went through the quads to narrow them down, honestly your quad didn't stick out as much to me as the other ones. Its a nice quad, and I know you must have alot of money into it, but when I looked at it I just don't really like how it looks. I think that there are too many colors, and they clash a bit too much, esecialy compared to some of the other quads.

There is always some people that complain about what quads get in. Everyone's oppinions are different so I don't expect everyone to agree with what quads I put into the poll. You have a very nice quad, and it's something to be proud of. And good luck if you decide to enter it again.

I tryed that the first couple months, and I really didn't like how it worked. By only having the first 10 that enter then you will always get some quads that aren't the nicest. By waiting a week and letting more people enter their quads it gives more people a chance to enter, and in many case lets nicer quads into the contest.

I'm a little surprised that the Trick450R machine didn't even make it into the competition, but, there are some really nice machines in there.
I tend to agree that the yellow doesn't work real well with the rest, but that's the color plate he's required to run this year.
I guess we should have considered that before we built it, but we actually didn't dwell much on looks, our concentration was on performance, 'form follows function' as they say.
Regardless, we appreciate the favorable comments and want to extend our congrats to all those in the final round, and especially to the owner of the winning machine. It's a tough competition in that collection of really nice rides!

I usualy say this atleast once a month, I view this more as a looks contest than anything else. I don't take just looks into consideration, I do also look at the other things like suspention and motor work. I have been running the contest like this for more than a year, and it has been working great for me. When there is someone that has a complaint I listen and if I think they are making a good point I will change something. Maybe I will start picking a random member to pick the 10 for the poll.

I am going to stick with 1 week for entries, and one week for a poll. No semi finals, and multiple polls, then it just gets to be too much work, and overly complecated.

Evana...thank you for your vote. We put alot of time and money in that machine for the future of kids in quad riding and racing. Was hoping to represent them in this competition.

I knew that putting a Kasea in there wouldn't get the votes that a 450 gets, due to more people race those and are more interested in them. But I am glad it was one of the 10 chosen so others can see what is out there.

GO KASEA!!!

Keep an eye out, I belive it will be July when I do another Quad of the Month for just Mini quads. So you can enter it again then, it's a sick little quad you have there.
