I think it looks better than the previous version... except for maybe the white anniversary edition, that one was hot!

I don't think I would ever own either. Who knows, maybe when I am old and don't want a cruiser I will get one.

heh. Yeah I am liking the new design on the k8's,the color schemes arn't bad either, though I would have preferred chrome/vs/gold rims on the Blu/Blk model... I was more-or-less looking for information as to if anyone's been known to have mechanical issues with the bike. Knowing there isn't much that's honestly been *too* changed except some of the aethetic values,

I heard once you get one of those, it turns out you are trying to compensate for a small d*ck.

heres how I view the busa's uses.
  1. As a great tourer.
  2. As a great drag bike.
  3. As a useless trailer queen, show bike after all the useless bs show mods.

I give it major kudu's for its performance and technology. But to me they are butt ugly and get uglier.

Chock me down for #1.... a nice sports tourer which is why I'll probably be picking it up. I've got a large frame so I need a large bike to fit a bit more comfortably on...

I think they need to start making smaller cc tourers for that line of reasoning tho

I agree whole-heartedly. I've got no need for 1350 CC's. I just need the big frame and like the nice styling. Not too fond of the ST1300 (honda) and I don't want to go the way of the GoldWing. I want the styling, it appeals to me the most...
