Busa or M-190r

I had a Suzuki B-king before (naked Busa) and I can't decide what I want next. So I decided to put it up for a vote, please give reason for your choice.

Actually sport bike is more comfy, keeps my back straighter, I have set on all of them, they all seem like they will be comfy but the extra length on the buss and zx14 mean learning turns again.

Actually why I put the R1 on there is because it's about the same wheelbase as the B-king. Am I right?

Well of the four choices you present only the M109R is a crusier.
I was making the same decison about 3 years ago.
I went 08 Busa I was 48 figured if I didn't I never would two years and 9K miles later I realized I had to get rid of it or it would get rid of me.
Point is as time goes on you may find yourself like many leaning more to crusiers a M109 can wait, hower if you get more bike than you have sanity you may not reach the cruiser years.

You had a B-King and parted with it = Ask your self why?
Its more like the other bikes on your list then the M109

I do not know you but I would go M109

To quote you the B-king parted with me low sided a left hand curve. I think I will probably go with one more sporty then get the cruiser, BUT if I go cruiser it will be the 109.

What is your size/weight?

What will you be using the bike for (track days, weekend rides, drag racing, commuting, etc.)?

Riding experience?

What have you previously owned?
