    i had never ridden a true liter bike before this- I had ridden a 1000 V-Twin, but I knew then that it wasn't a monster of any kind. This R1 though, it is an amazing machine! Awesome almost doesn't cover the power delivery and feel. Anyway, here are a few pics:

    I love my Busas, both of them. But this thing is a completely different ride.

    Nice bike sir. I looked at the r1s a lot as a replacement for my 09 gsxr600, but I was starting to ride Longer distances and wasn't all that confortable on the 600s or liter bikes anymore. So, I decided to go with the busa instead. Still remember the day I rode de busa home. I was amazed at how smooth it was on the highway compared to the 600. If I had more time to ride, I would probably have an r1 in the garage next to the busa and the little DR650.

    A v-twin 1k vs a 4 cylinder 1k is no comparison, as you've seen, 2 different animals.
    But try a gsxr1k or zx10, and you'll see just how weak an R1 is.
    They have no low or mid range by comparison at all.
    They do look and sound cool though.
