I have a Busa. If I really wanted a cruiser it would be the 109R.

R1's are incredibly fast, handle well, are reasonably comfortable and an all around bad mother f'er.

I would recommend the BUSA, depending on your leg/arm length you may like a 14.

You are going to feel like a monkey fu@king a football on a liter bike...

If you're only gonna to choose a bike dependent on another rider leaving you "behind", then I suggest you wait for the ZX-18 or the M149.

If want loads of information about the M109 go to www.intruderalert.com Amazing forum. Very helpful people. I have a 96 Suzuki Intruder, I love that bike. I heard a lot of good things about the M109. Another option to look at is the VMax but. My vote goes to the M109. Sound so good and so fast and comfortable.

im a little partial to the 109 myself...


we are about the same size and I hate the riding position of a sport bike.

ive riden from Houston to the middle of Alabama with no problem and making a bike night here and there always brings questions from folks.

m109riders.com will have every question and answer you could think of.


ive added air suspension to mine and can change from riding 2up to slammin it solo ....depending on the mood and road condition.


you wont have any regrets with a 109!

I said that for the guy that tried to sell me his m90, I was disappointed in the power of that bike. I believe one person on here pegged it for me, at 44 I think I have one more sporty in me before I "retire" to cruisers. Hope to see y'all soon, heavily leaning towards the busa as of now.
