I have never seen driving lights on a busa before. Sweet. Do you so alot of road trips on your busa?

I have been thinking about installing some driving lights. Sleepless_Red can you post some pics of your lights & how you mounted them? I think you setup looks clean. If anyone else has driving lights installed, can you post it.

Thanks.

I'm starting the season at 43,163. My goal is to put another 5k on. I would love to see 50K on the odometer. I may even do an "IronButt" this year.

I Have about 89,000 on my 01. I've been living off of it since 2008 when the economy took a shit and I had to get rid of my work truck. Couldn't afford the gas and my regular construction work pissed out so I took a crappy desk job. Typically I commute 500 miles a week from Orange County to downtown LA everyday.

Just spent 2 grand on a top end rebuild and new fork springs and seals to hopefully get a few more years out of it.

Only got 79200 on my 01, Have had some health issues the last few years that have cut into my riding time.
Bike still runs like new. Am hoping to see 100K on it before I have to quit riding. :tu:

Well, I'm glad I stumbled across this thread because someone I know is selling their '05 Hayabusa which has over 54k miles on it for $5400 and I was interested in buying it but though the milage was far too high for a bike like this but after reading so many of you who have bikes with just as much milage or more helps ease my mind some. :ab:

Just bought my 99 Busa yesterday, glad to hear they are getting used to there full potential with large mileage, like a lot of you guys with other bikes, also have a Fireblade and a cagiva elefant that have to share my affection ! Mine currently has 18.000 miles ( low for the age i think ) will try and do some winter mileage but will ride one of the others if the roads are shitty. Excited with my new bike and its parked in the house as the garage is full.  hope to be a positive member of the forum and help where i can. May take me a few months to be of any use with any tech stuff. Cheers

finally made 50k. Don't have as much time as I use too. Back in the day, I would have rode 1000 miles in a month.

Wish I could ride to work again. It was nice and relaxing.  Kinda put a smile on your face early in the morning.
