He sure is tenacious when it comes to the weight loss cause......there is more to this Ti sickness than I figured.

This is pure dedication to keeping a Hayabusa over seeking a lighter, more powerful bike and adapting it to sport touring use.
According to “experts” the healthy weight at my height is about 175-180lbs. I could go on a diet and lose 40lbs and save money on food and sweets, but I like to eat too much. I don’t see the point of spending money on making the bike lighter when I make it too heavy as soon as I sit on it. :laugh:

Ah yes, the old BMI (Body Mass Index). Our military had that for a while but it never took into account different body types.

We had troops who could bench press a car, run 10 miles without a sweat, but because the BMI said he should be 30lbs lighter, they (the military) would put him on remedial PT...I was one of these...I had a 44" chest and a 28" waist but was heavier than I should be. The good thing is the Dr who was on the board worked out with me in the gym. The BMI process went away thankfully.

I never understood that BMI thing either. By those standards, we are all obese, unless we look like we’ve been starving for a year.
 
No bro , not carbon fiber fairings , but always loved the thought of pure carbon , with no other added reinforcing though bro . I would expect your machine to have full carbon bodywork of some design , simpler with less fasteners , and of course that is what you have !! :)
Hi Mine are reinforced with some fiberglass. It is a 3/4 upper and a 1/4 lower.

I agree...I like my bike pretty much the way it is now, reliable and stable on the road.

I like a little weight underneath me especially when it's windy out or on hiways. I find the Hayabusa doesn't get blown around too much.

I've ridden really light liter and 600 bikes and they suck on the hiway, a pickup truck will almost blow you off the road.
I agree I did not really enjoy riding my liter bike on the interstate. Busa is way better in that regard
