I Love my Wife!
with me for having run into a killer deal I just couldn't refuse on this?...do I still get to hang out here from time too time?...
I don't know anyone on the ZX forums but I have a lot of friends here dating back 15 years or so and it's been my experience that "The Brand Zealot Thing" only exists on the internet where alter ego's seek the approval of other alter ego's when in the real world?...us motorcycle enthusiasts are usually happy to meet each other no matter what brand we happen to be riding at the moment especially when it's two top tier Hyper-Bikes like the mighty Busa and the ZX-14.No try this on the ZX forums
It's actually to soon for me to make a comparo yet as I still haven't gotten to fully know the bike or even get it set up properly yet but I'm working on it and?...I also don't think it would be a very fair comparo as I only owned my '03 Gen1 "Oren-Ishii" where the comparo would be more fair comparing this '08 ZX14 too a Gen II Busa but at the end of the day?...speaking as a 60 year old post stroke diabetic with medical bills as high as my blood pressure? (LOL!)...I'm just happy to be on any big bore monster again be it a Gen I, Gen II, ZX-12, ZX-14 or whatever but the continued rivalry between Suzuki and Kawasaki is what brought us all these super performers to ride.How does it compare to the busa?
$5K for this '08 w/ 12,525mi on the odo and unmolested (bar a set of Coffman shorty's on the exhaust) along with a freshly mounted set of Pirelli Diablo's.
For transparency and truth in disclosure?...there were many bikes on my shopping shortlist including the FJR, Concourse, ST1300, and was even momentarily distracted a time or two by great prices on a 1 out of 300 BMW R1100S "Boxer Cup" and believe it or not?...a Moto Guzzi "Norge" (until I found out why it's price was so appealing...can you say "Hot Knees"? LOL!) and of course the bike I was really seeking was another Hayabusa of which I had two in negotiations that were both '05 models for $6K (but the owners were unwilling to take what I was offering) and I even test rode a 2009 M109 SE...what a beautiful but massive beast and not for me even with a scant 6,400 on the odo for $6,100.Congrats! I had both for a while and now have an FJR and still hanging around. I have not given up on getting another busa though...
