I know its a matter of taste and just my opinion, but I will never understand owning a hyabusa. They are just not attractive bikes and so massive in size that you cant take em in the twisties. I only see them as a 1/4 mile bike. Just curious, what made you decide to buy one? What was the appeal?

I do a lot of two up riding....my wife loves to ride....never thought i would buy a hayabusa either.
I did not buy the busa with the intent to run the strip, was more after comfort.
They are acutally a decent touring machine with the addition of heli-bars. They handle remarkably well for a big bike, have plenty of power, and are relatively comfortable. Only thing is they dont stop near as well as the 1098. Need to upgrades some calipers or get more agressive pads.
Some people don't care for the appearence....just a matter of Personal taste. I perfer the looks of the busa over the ZX-14....besides I now own the most gorgeous motorcycle money can buy....the 1098.

Amen to the last comment! As for two up riding, I see what you mean. I can see it as a comfy ride especially with someone on the back. I sat on one at a dealership once just to see what it felt like and the seats are like lazyboy recliners! lol. Well be safe on that thing, i know itll go from zero to wow in no time flat...
