I'm looking to get a new bike within the next month or two. Right now, I've been riding a '98 1400 Intruder for about 3 years. I want to get back to something with more balls when I twist open the throttle and enter the curves but my hang up is my wife. Now don't get me wrong, she's a great gal, but whenever I fire up the bike she's standing right there in the driveway with her helmet, waiting to go. I'm seriously considering the Bandit 1200s because my wife seems to like it a lot and she's quite comfortable sitting back there. I personally want something that will perform better on those "alone rides" and I have fallen in love the 'busa. Now my wife loves to ride with me and I can't (wouldn't want to) take that away from her, so I'm looking for a sporty, fast bike that my wife will enjoy on long weekend rides. Can someone please tell me that they have a 'busa that the wife will ride on hours on end or am I just dreaming of a bike that doesn't exist. I guess I'm looking for that transformer bike that is two-up touring comfort, when you want it, and sport fast and handling while alone. I'm sure many guys have to be in my position and I'm curious if any have made the 'busa into their "dream machine".
