How 'bout it, MO! This post seems to beg for a review



As I read through this thread (does that make me a poet, or did I blow it?) I found myself desiring a professional review of said beast. When I turned to THE SOURCE (MO) for good info on every bike on the market, I found that my favorite website had posted its most recent review on the Hayabusa in '99 when it was as powerful as the current liter offerings. Here's your first vote for a brand new review of the Zook.



I love kissing ass :*

You ran off and got married without inviting me?



I was denied the chance to hit on a bridesmaid or vomit at the reception!



I use State Farm for my coverage as well and haven't found anyone less expensive.

Thanks for the input rmdower, I guess IÂ’ll put the sprint on the list to check out when I make the pilgrimage from Presidio, TX to Albuquerque where the nearest triumph dealer that keeps any stock is located.

What about my idea of upgrading to a last gen ZX9? In a drag race I think the 9 wins till 140 or so. Just a guess there. As for top end, that is something belonging to theory. In practice if you were to occasionally take either to the top for a few moments a few times do you really think the experience of say 175 vs 186 is subjectively different?

I always thought the Busa, ZX12R, Blackbird and ZZR would make a good SPORT-Tourer test, I even volunteered to help.

I have an 04 955i that I'm still breaking-in (450 miles so far). But I can give you some initial impressions.It's a beautiful bike (yellow), and has a great sounding engine. (people always compliment me on the bike wherever I go, even non-bikers, it really turns heads) Lots of leg room, but the handlebars are to low for me. So I'm thinking about installing a set of converti-bars. The bike makes a lot of noise (Sounds like a diesel ) at startup, but quiets down to a very cool sounding idle after a few minutes. It also makes a very loud tweeting noise that I'm told is the fuel pump. It's noticable (and somewhat annoying)at idle, but seems to add to the triple's wail when accelerating. I've never ridden a 'busa, so I can't comment on it, but the Triumph should have much better handling due to its weight advantage. Oh' and I've been gettting about 45 miles to a gallon (mixed city/hwy). All-in-all I'm very happy with the bike. And I'd recommend it to anyone. Hope this helps!
