Default help choosing a bike

I'm new to the biking world and i don't know what kind of bike i want.
I've looked and finaled my choices down to a GSXR1000 a CBR1000 or a Hayabusa and the only reason i'm considering a Busa is it's S-DMS any suggestions?

A bike like that is like a Stallion - you have to show that sum-bum-an-inch who's the fargin' Boss, right out of the fargin' gate. Throw a leg over that farger, give a snoot-shot to those fargin' ice-holes that naysay a first bike this big, grab yerself a fargin' handful of that throttle like it was yer dork, then ham-fist the clutch outta the parkin' lot.

That'll make an Impression. On anything shy of a Diesel Locomotive.

Get a turbo Busa. The stock ones are kinda slow.

Kinda? HA! They're horribly slow and handle like a freight train off its tracks... you need a Turbo, NOS AND some new tires, a new fork with a brace just to take it off the showroom floor.... Oh, dont forget the aftermarket exhaust...

How did you say you were going to insure a liter racebike at age eighteen? Heck, I can't even afford it now, and I'm over twice that age.
