I like the blue bike, I'm just that way.

I have one question... Will the Japanese engineers ever design at least a half-assed looking exhaust can? They look like caca on a stick. Is it just me or what? :blink:

I was gonna say, I bet you could do 90 miles in a half-hour, but Escape's answer is prolly a better one.

I would not be honest if I didn't admit that the primary reason my red 2005 R1 was traded in on the Busa is due to my lack of discipline when riding the R1. :(

I gots me all kinds of discipline, mind you... but I just seem to chuck all of it out the window when I swung a leg over this old beauty of mine:

I have never received so many stops/citations on one bike before..... I was on the side of the road collecting my first speeding ticket WITHIN 20 MINUTES of owning the above bike! :( True story... was busted riding it home from Desert Valley Powersports, and got yet a SECOND citation less than 24 hours later! :angry2:

I owned that R1 from June, 2005 to Nov, 2007..... got busted a total of 11 times on that bike, 5 of which ended up in written citations.

The worse was 103 mph in a 55 zone...... amazingly, I was able to talk/plead myself out of that one.... the County Sheriff who stopped me owned the exact same model year R1! B) Thankfully, we were all alone out in the High Desert when I got busted, so I suspect this helped my cause a little.

The summer of 2007 was the worse.... 3 citations. As much as I loved that bike, it was with a big sigh of relief that it got traded in for the Hayabusa a couple months later.

Sounds like to me you are saying that the busa is slower than the R1????

The Busa *is* slower that the R1.... coming off the line. :D

After a couple gear changes, though.... the Busa takes it handily.

T'was strictly a matter of discipline.... I have decent discipline on the Hayabusa. But next to none, when riding the R1.... :(
