Mine has always been on except for a few times when a pretty girl wanted a ride. Sometimes in life we have to make exceptions. I don't really like the look of a Busa with the passenger seat on it. I saw mine in the showroom with the hump on and bought it on the spot. She's a sexy b!tch I tell ya.
I'm not too sure I'm buying any of this... And if I were you I would start on something smaller. I would never encourage anyone to start off with a busa that has never ridden a bike before. Good luck staying alive dude.
My girl is paid for and so is my truck. I'm putting in a new $20k custom kitchen in the house and paying cash. Only bit of debt I have is company related but that will be paid off by summer. Being self employed helps a little if you want to work hard. It sucks having an excellent credit score...
I went for the stealth look too. I got tired of pimply faced kids coming up and relating all of their Hayabusa storied to me in the parking lot. Now I get the occasional "nice bike, what is it?" and I reply....A Vespa!
A good friend of mine in Pcola just bought a new mean streak. We're trying to get together to do some riding so it may be possible we could meet each other there. Panama must be a good four hours from the Tampa area? Not sure my azzz could handle that long a ride on the busa?
