1st Busa = long trip


Approx. a month ago I bought my first Busa. I changed the plugs, eng. oil/filter, chain & sprockets, tires, fork seals/oil, adjusted the suspension as per "Jinkster", bleed the brakes & clutch, bar risers, lowered pegs, throttle lock, electric vest, SW-Motech side rack mount & Kappa K40 bags. I left June 20 and got back last night...took the bike from Alberta Canada into Montana, Idaho, Washington and back up into BC. 3300kms/2050miles. Awesome trip...awesome bike!

This is the second year we've gone on a long trip at the end of June....hope to do it every year. Last year I took a 1979 CB750 to Bear tooth pass. I much prefer the Busa, it makes a fantastic sport tourer.

Wow, that is a lot of miles. I would love to do a bike trip through that part of the country.


I love the northern States, the people, the roads and the landscape. The people are so friendly and have such a great attitude towards bikers. I think next year I'd like to go to Colorado.
