rode bikes since I was twelve. Limited street riding and none for about ten years before I bought my new 2006 busa. The fastest thing I rode was a fj 1200. I dont regret getting it.

Never got a chance to take it to a drag strip but i ride it at least 2-3 times a week. Wish i could commute with it but parking at work isnt safe for a bike. Yeah still have yoshi rs3 + pc3usb and a rumble undertail on it. Next mod might be some frame sliders. Those are LONG overdue lol. Right now im trying to avoid spending more money on it because i think ill probably want a gen2 busa within the next year or two if i can afford one.

Started riding off road when I was 11.
Got my first road bike when I was 16 and been on road bikes ever since.
Thats around 33 years road experience  :thumb:

Bought my 1st Busa in 2000 after many previous bikes of all sizes.

Started riding in 1959 or 60 on a Vespa scooter, 24 motorcycles later I bought the Busa in 06, has going on 16000 on it now, almost all with turbo, 4 major crashes, none with busa, never any more damage to me except for road rash, bikes were wasted

The hayabusa was the first bike i bought and when i bought it my experience was a big zero with motorcycles.  The busa is the only bike i would ever own.  Been through stock busa's to bolt on busa's to nitrous busa's and have been in the turbo realm for a few years now and loving it.

I was riding for years , I remember when that T.V comercial for the very first busa came out , where the dinosaur looking bird fly's down from the sky between the mountains and onto the roadway and becomes a Hayabusa (the bike).
Had an 04' bought an 08' , my brother had a 99' , I said ride this, he goes "godda have one" , sold it to him to him for cost price bought a Gold 09' , love it , its a keeper !
