This Gen 2 Hayabusa has been used as a commuter, with two trips to Plumb Island, MA for Striper fishing/camping. And another 2 week ride to Lake Michigan/Manistee National Forest and back. Never been laid down. No accidents. Kept covered indoors. I take care of my toys. Don't be scared. She's a good girl! And just like any fine lady, you have to keep your wits about you.
