Yet another newb

Newb here just checking in. Just got back into riding after a year off - last ride was an 04 CBR1000RR and a 954RR before that. Before that I had about 20 years racing motocross.

I've had my busa (2006 phantom grey/black) a little over 3 months and have almost 7k miles on the clock so far. Absolutely LOVE this bike!

So far: ZG DB screen, Vortex sliders, Muzzy full exhaust, PCIII usb, GIPro ATRE, Galfer rear rotor, pads, and line, Mototeck undertail, 200 BT014 rear, lowering links, and fairing grilles from Highgearhobbies - oh ... and an ajustable kickstand (after she fell over in my garage!)

Hopefully this winter I'll be lengthening 4 inches, NX dry kit, and an MPS air shifter. Gateway raceway in St Louis is only an hour away from me so next spring I'm hoping to spend some time down there flogging this thing. I've only raced dirt before so this is all new to me.

I've already gained tons of useful info from this site - glad I found it! Too bad I didn't find this site earlier - maybe I would have known the stock kickstand was going to screw me - LOL!

Welcome, good to hear you are back on.

Is your bike in the corner for being bad?

Yeah, the big mean Harley guys at work make me park it out there ...

... actually it is the most secure place where I work so there she is.

Thanks for the greeting guys.  I'll wait a few days before I start peppering everyone with questions.

Welcome aboard! Great looking bike. There probably aren't many things to do to a busa that aren't at least discussed here - if you think of something new to do, then share! Great looking scoot!
