    One other safety note!! You will have to pump the front brakes when you get it under control to get the brakes back. When you first grap them it will be like you just changed your front tire and you won't have brakes. This can cause panic in the inexperienced rider as well and lead to other...

    Tank Slap

    Usually it is caused by laziness on the part of the rider. Instead of using legs to get a position change on the bike the rider "Pulls" himself up with the bars. Exactly what was said earlier is what happens. the front wheel comes down pointed in a different direction than the rear is traveling...

    Improving the brake lines is the best way to improve braking on the busa. The pads are important too as they work together. The lines will not allow brake fade. If you ride hard and brake hard the weight of the busa will get your brake fluid hot fairly quickly and allow the stock rubber lines to...

    My First Podium

    My not so little son has discovered baseball and has been playing year round down here since we moved to Florida. We all have dirt bikes now and get out at least once a week so the family is doing good. Cheers

    My First Podium

    Hello all to all the old timers who remember when I had a busa. I raced the Race of Champions at Daytona this year. This was my first time on this track and it is fast. I raced in Formula 40, HW Supersport, and HW Superbike. The formula 40 race was a rain race and I do mean rain. I broke one of...

    Hey Lori! I am still with Cycle Gear and still living in Florida. Wow 3 years now. Time sure flies. Enjoy the trip. I wish I had the time for some relaxation. Good to see you posting. You need to get that busa so you can keep up with my 600. Do you still have the picture of Leno in the .org...

    Well well well... Looks like the whole gang is back.  Good to see that riding a rocket ship on 2 wheels didn't leave any permanent marks.  I have switched to a few different horses.  We have 2 dirt bikes and 1 quad, BMW K1200LT, and still the ZX6R for racing(Still the #1 passion).  I will be...
