Thanks, Z06boy. I love it. I have over 700 miles on it already. She could have over 1000 miles within one week of purchase. The longest ride I've done so far since I bought it was 302 miles last Sunday.

I admit when I hopped on the one I rode it felt better than I expected. I am used to 600's and I've also owned a ZX9r and two R1's and a ZX-11 a long time ago and assumed it would be like the ZX-11 but it felt alot better and of course had more power...again...nice bike and enjoy. :cheers:

Hey Rider, just curious. How much did your brother-in-law pay for his Busa? How does he like it? I absolutely love it. It's funny, I went to Criswell Powersports last Wednesday to show it to my buddy who always worked on my R1 and it only had 136 miles on it. Before I left, he said, "see you back in about a week for the 1,000 mile service." I said, "ok." I guess that's what's gonna happen.

You know what Z06boy? That's exactly how I felt when I first rode it from the dealer. I was like, man, I can ride this thing all day. And that's within like 5 minutes on it. That's the day too that I put 136 miles on it.

He likes it a lot. He rode it down to the MotoGP race last July from Seattle. As far as price, I have no idea. He's loaded and doesnt like to talk about money. He traded in a 99 ZRX1100 and an 06 KLR650 for it. Both were paid for so I dont have any clue what his balance would have been after the trade. Im sure he got a very good deal though.

You know another thing I like about it, the headlight. Man, that thing is bright. The day I bought it, I went out at 10:00 until 11:30 pm and again the next day at 4:00 until about 6:00 am. I rode part of RT355 and it even lights up the trees on both sides of the road. And when I hit the high beam, it's like BAM! That projector just lights everything in front of me.

I know the high beam is projector. Not sure about the low beam, but it's really bright. Like I said, the low beam lit up the trees on both sides of the street.

How do you think the Busa compares to the R1? One of the guys I ride with has an 07 Busa. Said it handles better than his 06 R1 did.
I wouldn't recommend doing stand-ups. He was doing stand-ups this past wkend and oil drained into his air filter. No permanent damage.

Thanks, everyone. I'm having so much fun with it. I just got back again from a 4 hour ride. You know what guys, I don't feel anything. No sore back, wrists, neck or anything. I can't comment on the handling yet because I'm still taking it easy. But let me tell you, the comfort, you can't beat. It's much more comfortable than my '01 R1. It's not that I can't ride the R1 all day. But this one is a totally different bike. I haven't ridden a cruiser yet, but the way I see it, it has the comfort of a cruiser and the power of a sportbike. A lot more. Perfect for me. Like I've said, I'm still taking it easy on the RPM. That's why I haven't jumped on the interstate, yet. I heard that that's the worst thing you can do on a brand new bike. Stay at 4,000 rpm for hours during the first 1000 miles. On the back roads, the rpm varies most of the time. All I can say about the Busa is WOW!!! So, if you're looking for comfort and power, I only have one word for you. Hayabusa. Love the black, too. I had a choice between the blue, burgundy, and the black. The other two just didn't do it for me. The only problem I'm having since I brought her home is I can't sleep good. I always wanted to ride night or day. I'm 41 years old. I need to sleep. j/k
Seriously, though. I've been waking up at 2-3 in the morning and just go to the garage and just look at her. I don't know how long this sleepless nights is going to last.
