You know the Hayabusa is a bad animal, when everyother video on Youtube is running a Hayabusa against something else. Whether it be a car, bike, rocket, highly modified car, jet airplane, etc. . . The Hayabusa is truely an Icon in the gearhead world (cars/motorcycles). Its funny how people who are not even in the motorcycling world have heard the name Hayabusa. I can honestly admit, the attention from people I get about the bike is almost as much fun as riding it, lol. Lots of questions, comments, double takes, being stared at as I ride past, lol, etc. I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about. Unfortunately, I bought mine at the age of 48. . . I dont ride it like it was designed to be. Heck, I have 4,000 miles on it and its never seen redline in 3rd! Its not that I cant handle it, as I have owned 12 bikes some of which were very fast also. Its just a different time in my life. This is my ferrari, lol. And I will continue to ride it until I physically can not hold it up or see well enough. I'm glad I got the chance to own one. Its a blast!
