I believe there is an old phrase "You can't please all of the people all of the time.
" As the editor did mention, the Busa is the most widely modded & supported bike out there nowadays. It's become the new chopper, amongst the cruiser set. With such a large base out there, how could a magazine in all honesty not address such a crowd? As pointed out, there seems to be at least one or two in each issue anyways. Why not make an issue just on the equipment to get into Busa riding, to mod one, then show some bikes to give some ideas? Some were plain ridiculous like the wolf bike, to the nicely done stock looking bike, till you checked out the gator glass logos.
Looking at the work done on those bikes, a lot of it was mods that the riders themselves had worked out, so I'd think an all Busa issue would inspire all those who don't ride Busas but want the same love would do the same self inspired modding.
In other words, if you want the creative look on your bike, and manufacturers don't support your bike, look at that Busa issue, and realize that shouldn't stop you.
I don't own a Busa, but with all the new riders that have come along in the last year and went out & bought a Busa... I'm thinking that the Busas that do survive this riding season are going to be up for sale early next year and I may consider getting one for a decent price.
