Busas are fine on the track, if you don't mind the extra weight and kinda sluggish response. Mine would drag it's peg feelers both right and left turns. At MSRH on street tires it was 10 seconds off advanced pace, like 1:55's, but still was able to pass a lot of supersports, drag knee, and leave little black lines on corner exits. Every once it a while it did a little pig dance when the front tire let go.

They are even better on the street. Tons of torque means while you are gear searching for the right ratio they are gaining on you. While you are racer tucked and panicked and breathing hard they are comfortable and relaxed and on the radio. Cops need long distance capability, comfort, etc...

Hate to hear that you question group rides now....Forest ride is AMAZING!!!!! You should go on one...you'll be hooked. If for absolutely NOTHING else, you should go for the burgers at Yankees. That alone is worth it!

(oh yeah, and the ride is fun too...)

Maybe you would enjoy mudbug's ride at the end of the month (I read somewhere he is doing a forest newbie ride...). But, and they say it before every ride, everyone rides their own ride, and no one is going to get left behind...that's why they have designated sweepers!

But Busa cop with all the weight on his bike on the streets of houston in houston traffic. That i have to see.

Plus I would like to see the busa cop chasing a bike going 160 mph endangering the lives of other drivers.
That would be great PR

And the way everyones putting it is as if a busa cop is changing the game.

A cop is a cop. Busa+ Charger+ Impala+ Helicopter still = Shipleys donuts
