Hi great colour, you will love it.
i bought mine having never ridden a sports bike and I was amazed at the torque and handling abilty.
You can get through a few sets of tyres but if you take it easy you can increase the tyre life considerably
Be careful as its easy to get over the speed limit in the blink of an eye.
Also you get the car drivers trying to get you into a drag race
This is mine with my grandson getting into the biking scene

Never owned one,but had occasion to ride several,after performing the timing chain tensioner recall on the earlier ones.
I was not only impressed with the power,but also the smoothness of that terrific engine,and was very comfortable for a sport bike.
That engine would have made a great start for Suzuki to re-introduce the Cavalcade Line.

Here's one that a buddy of mine from work rides. He says the extension keeps him from doing stupid things like wheelies, fronties, and says it keeps his speed down in the curves. Guess so since the rear tire is probably 16 inches wide.

I don't get it but that's ok.

Beautiful bike. Congrats.

Hopefully you get to take it to a drag strip or somewhere where you can really "use" it a couple of times. I bought a Yamaha R1 last October and have been dying to get it to a track for some track time and to see what it can do before I end up being stupid on the street. Have a track day coming up March 1st so getting close. Can't wait to see what it can actually do.

Back to your Busa....they are awesome bikes. Just be careful that you don't let the awesomeness of the machine make you stupid when you ride it.

You will love it ! I only sold mine to make space in the garage. Too many toys. Replaced busa with the Goldwing. I toured with my Hayabusa for 8 years and found it very comfortable for up to about 500 miles before the pain set in. No such problem with the Wing. A couple pics of my 04 LE hayabusa.

Fastest 2 wheels I have ever been on. Really liked it, but will not own one. I do not have enough self-control to avoid preformance awards. The stack would be pretty high I fear.
