for all the chit talking about the busa riders that dont corner and just wanna show off, I see more sportbike riders that think they can corner and have larger chickenstrips then tread wear.
if this is true and they are so fast and so good at cornering why arent more people using them on the track?

Seems an officer on a Busa , if primary intention is to catch sport bike riders speeding may basically be escalating, the whole speeding issue.

No mater what you ride you can't outrun Motorola
or what ever radio they use today.

Hey maybe they will run down some of those stolen bikes.

I wasn't saying that this is the cop. This is a picture of Caligonetx on the track last year on his RED busa. Feel free to go see his pics from the rest of that day:

I was just pointing out MugBug's fequent point. It's not the bike, it's the riders, and some riders can corner the chit out of their bikes, no matter what they're on.

I have no idea, actually. I've never been to the track and don't know what speeds they run out there.

Anyone have a better answer than me on this?
