I just registered today. Anyway, i currently have a 2002 R6 and the thing just doesn't have near the power i am looking for. I do a lot of interstate style cruising and want a very stable and comfortable, well decently comfortable, hehe bike that has some serious balls. I have it narrowed down to 3 bikes as of right now. The R1, Gixxer 1000, or the 1300 Busa. I think i would go R1 over the gix 1000, but then there is the Busa, such a sweet looking bike and we all know it has balls. My chick likes to ride with me alot and the R6 is just terrible with a passenger as would an R1 or Gixxer 1000. How is the Busa with a passenger as supposed to the others? It looks like it would be much more comfortable as it isn't set up straight for racing. Anyone have both and rode passengers on both? Been reading the board and it seems like a sweet site. What are the differences from the 2002 to the 2003 Busa. Just asking cause my dealer has a blue and black 2002 leftover.
