OK I have to admit when I went to buy my Busa I was freeked I thought oh my god this thing is so fast and scarry . But when I drove it for the first time I didnt think it went all that good . I rode my 89 GSXR1100 129 RWH 6.6 101 MPH in the eigth mile (we dont have quarter in Maine) that I had for 5 years to this guys house he had my 2000 Blue silver Busa with 750 Miles on it for a hell of a deal . He told me I could take it for a ride if I wanted I brought my girlfriend for its first ride down the road awesome suspension felt a bit bigger and heavier than my lightwieght 1100 I rolled on a couple of times in 4th then 3rd then 2nd I thought it went ok but I was expecting alot more from all I had read I was waiting for the wheelie in 3rd to take me right over .Dont get me wrong I love my bike but with all of the hype I expexted alot more power rip my hands off the handlebars. Since then it has broken in and goes very good I can deffinatly woop my friends 1100 ass badly even 2up but could you guys roll up in a wheelie in 2nd gear will an ATRE make a huge differnece I added a Two Brothers 4-2-1 exhaust but mostly cause I didnt care for the duals and no noise . it is a fast bike dont get me wrong I have seen 185 more than once on the speedo and can go faster than the 1100 in 5th gear I hear alot about power wheelies on the 1000 GSXR in 3rd gear is this alot of hype too ..... Not that I would ever get rid of my Busa when it came out I knew that it would be mine .
