I have not received my bike yet but wanted to say hi.  Today I ordered the 40th Anniversary edition orange Hayabusa.  I hope I like the color when it arrives.  The first time I rode a Hayabusa (three days ago) I fell in love with it.  I also own a HD Road King that I love. The Suzuki is so different and exciting.  

I just wanted to say hello.

I am not a rich person but the HD is paid for. So since I am debt free, I figured, what the hell.

I hope I like the Orange.

Welcome to the board lazerblade.
The orange is totally awesome in my opinion.
As a matter of fact, I just may paint mine a similar color.

Thanks Monster. I have no idea when it will come. The dealership says from tomorrow to next month. I could have paid $1000 less today and taken a silver one home but I liked what I saw in the photo of the Orange one.

Wish me luck.

Welcome...who will be the first member to own and post a picture of their limited edition orange.

For me, I would of saved the $1,000 and considered a custom paint job.

<span style='color:darkblue'>Lazerblade,

While I'm glad you'll be getting a Busa, I feel somewhat bad that you opted for a color that's at least 10mph slower than the silver/gray.

Ahh good, another Harley rider who is not afraid to expand his horizons and venture into the world of speed. I have been on Harleys for years and the Busa is my 4th sportbike. It is a trip to be able to switch between the two. Welcome, and take your time when you start riding the orange beast.

I really hate to do this. Lazerblade, you lost out...not ONCE, but TWICE. Being that you're new to the Busa, you didn't realize that you turned down an opportunity to own the "FASTEST" of the Busas (the silver/grey) and keep $1000 for other goodies. Don't let anyone else try to fool you, but I hope the extra grand is well spent

Bacharles,

Yea, maybe I could have spent the $1000 on other stuff and been riding a grey or a black one now. I have thought about it but the wait won't be that long. I will be gone next week in Germany returning (hopefully) to my new bike just waiting to be ridden.

Suzuki says the Orange Hayabusa has Graphite/Teflon paint developed by the US Air Force that actually forces the bike to go about 10% faster than the Grey/Black one. I cannot confirm this though until I see it.

And, I am still getting a new bike.

 Don't listen, Stand your ground.  The 03 LE Rocks, Color is cool.   Besides I am pretty sure they first applied the Graphite/Teflon paint you are refering to on the 02 SE with a different tint base, sort of a Marketing Sample.  I have been trying to convince folks that this makes the Editions faster.  It's also nice not to be "stuck" on a "Generic" Silver/Blue...Silver/Black" Busa...

  Don't forget to mention the special radar absorbant properties of the paint.

Besides, all the chrome you could have bought with 1K would just trap heat, increase weight, double cleaning times, etc. Anyway, if you want chrome get a Harley, you want to ride, get a busa.
