Rode it home!

Just picked up a brand new 2001 Busa yesterday and rode it 190 miles to its new home. Left the dealer with zero miles on the odometer. What a machine!!! Could not believe the power, (must respect that or else) comfort of the seat, and the bike overall especially being 6'2" and 200 lbs. The blue/silver color scheme is well done. Can't wait till the weather gets warmer!! Riding home with temp in the 30s was a bitch. Only the fingers got cold and nothing a good glass of bourbon didn't fix after the ride was over.

Try and remeber to keep it under 5000 rpm for the first 600 miles, there is an argument to nail em from the begining but I would stick to what the manual says.
and don't forget ,it can only get better !!!!
WELCOME TO THE CLUB !!

Captain, the Busa is my 7th machine since I started riding about 20 yrs ago. Its the 5th machine in the garage now. Had to clean up the garage to allow the wife to park her car in it with the cold weather upon us. Its a small consolation ya know. I kept the revs below 5k for the ride home and had to watch the traction. With the outside temp at 35-40F tires would not get hot enuf to breakin so I was basically ridin straight and level for the ride home. There was brutal wind happening too and that made the ride home a bit more difficult too. Finally got some cover in the last 50 miles. I'll be lookin at get a replacement windscreen and helibars added soon. Any recommendations on model of windscreen?
