Question What would you do?

I have a buddy at work who is thinking of selling his busa to get a gsxr 1000 or r1. Im trying to convince him to keep the busa and buy a litre bike. I told him to make the busa a track bike (drag race). If this was you what would you do?

I would do it, but it would have to be for the S1000RR or the new 2011 ZX10R. Its hard downgrading on power for me unless I had both......

It all depends on his ability to maintain 2 bikes. No way an R1 would be on my list though

The US model is a Hurricane. I hate the name fireblade for this reason:
the name FIREBLADE came alone, through a misinterpreted translation from French to English for the Japanese word for lightening [sic].
So in actuality it's a Honda Lightning
