I just took a quick look at Trader Online and those buggers are holding their value well. The damn things look like they're retaining water though. Make the 'busa a nekkid bike and you'd have a real Monster.

Get the Daytona if you like corners. I put high handlebars on my '00 Daytona and it's very comfortable on the highway. Add a gel seat and you're ready for sport-touring.

A Hayabusa weighing less than 500 lbs? Maybe on the Moon. Or without gas, oil, water, battery, and wheels. Wet they weigh more like 550.

This woman I know told me her husband was buying a sports tourer. I asked which one and she said the Busa. I was a little surprised; although I don't know the husband well I figured him for a good liar right away. Probably works well for the driver; but I'm guessing passenger accommodations are not of the touring variety.

BTW: BMW DOES make a Hayabusa-like naked cruiser, haven't heard a bad thing about it, looks kind of funky, but we always say that about Beemers. Motorcycle mag named it bike of the year!

My gas mileage this week is 25 miles to the gallon. I probably doesnt help that I typically stay in 2nd until I hit 80.

I read a report from a guy a while back who completed a 50CC with his girlfriend on the back of a 'busa.



For those who might not know, a 50CC is a Iron Butt event where you ride coast to coast in 50 hours or less. I've done the basic IB event which is a 1000 miles in 24 hours and that 50CC one is just out there.
