I finally got to get some saddle time on my new Busa... Yesterday was beautiful here in MD and I put about 200 miles on... This is my first Hayabusa and that's coming from a Gixxa 750. All I can say is WOW! I absolutely love everything about this bike! I used to hear people reference there size and weight and bought into it myself. I learned yesterday that's BS! Not only is it agile with insane torque and throttle response in ANY gear, I got down almost to the edge of my tire coming through a couple turns yesterday... And I still haven't even finished the "break-in" to take my RPM's up and stretch the gears out! Yes, I'm beginnings I understand why this bike has devoted followers... I believe I have now become one! All I can really say is the Hayabusa is unlike any machine of any kind I have ever experienced! Insane! Any thought to a knew Busa owner are all welcome... Just sharing my excitement!
