Going to pick up the new Busa this spring. Never rode one! Been reading as much about bikes as possible this year. OK, this is not my first bike. Started riding at 14 when the 850 Norton was the fastest. Progressed from a 50cc - 250cc - 450cc - 750 cc and 1000 cc. Got a Concours last Fall. First time I rode since about 1980. There were not sport bikes then. Off road bikes were street Scramber's. One year I rode 26,000 miles on a 750 Honda. What a great bike. Bikes have so much power now. If I got a Busa in my 20's I'm sure I would be dead. Had a Muscle car then (150mph). Faster than a Z-1. I lived! I like the way the UK does licensing. I'm 48 now and figured if I'm ever going to own one it should be now.
