Yeah, its all about the rider. You can only warn them. Usually if a person starts asking, they're actually willing to listen.

If I could do it all again, I'd make a sv650 my 1st bike. Won't pass 140, takes forever to ge there, great handling, and v twin torque enough to keep almost anyone smiling

Nice R6 dude. I thought about getting one and losing the 1000, but the lack of torque would make me regret it. Love the 08s tho.

+1 on that squid poser.

Another terrific starter bike! They hold their value extremely well too.

I'm just sick of dropped stretched chromed out busas.
A friend of mine used to take his to the track, (not drag strip track) and he loved it, but said it was a helluva workout.
oooh brotha... trust me.

Here in Florida... all you see is stretched chromed out busas... its annoying as hell. Thank god, I didnt do all the mod's on my bike... it came with the bike from the previous owner... not to stereotype... but... hmm... mines got some shiny parts... but... im thinking about murdering out my bike... haha

I have ridden many bikes... 929...R6...600RR...gixxer600... and I have to say you can not compare the accleration with the busa... the power is great.

Question as to... WHY... did I get the busa... if I enforce that speed kills...?

I bought the busa... because its heavier... and I wouldnt attempt to do some stupid crap I used to pull on my other bikes... (wheelies and such... you can imagine...) I got to the point in my life... I just wanted to ride... enjoy... and live longer. Although at times... pulling on that throttle is quite fun... and taking the corners at high speed on the busa is pretty exciting...

Its all about how well you have your head screwed on man.
Bikes don't hurt people, the riders throttle hand does.

Agree...

Its not the bike... its the rider, its the careless drivers...

the 929 is old as dirt, and was lacking serious 1000 power, and the rest are all 600s.

ride a 1st or 2nd gen ZX10R, K5, K6, or K7 gixxer 1k and then tell me if u still think the busa is fast.

yeah, it's the r55. i switched to the yosh gp evo . my bro-in-law works at yosh so he just gets me stuff to try out (he grabbed the evo on one of the race bikes). it blends in much better with the bike. it doesn't sound as loud as the r55, but it's still pretty good. i'll take pix this wknd.

I really hope Stoner doesn't dominate like he did lasy year. My boy Nicky has been testing well, so i hope he can have some top finishes this year. It would make the season interesting if rossi, hayden, or someone else could give stoner some competition on that duc.
