yeah, sorry if it sounded like I was addressing you specifically. There were several comments that I just kinda grouped in my response. I would say that a vast majority of stretched bikes you see on the street are strictly for poseurs, but
extended swingarms do not necessarily =

I would say that IF I were to ever get a busa I would stretch it 6 in. just so I could get the most out of full throttle starts. Speaking of drag racing I am taking the rc to HRP tomorrow to work on those starts. Any bets on 1/4 time?

If you like extended swingarms then more power to you. Different strokes for different strokes as jrock said before. Personally, I can't stand um, and although I have seen a few Busa's barred and stretched that are nice, I have ridden a few and they do not fit my personal riding style. I like curves and regardless of what anyone may say...a 300 tire and 22 inch extended swingarm does not make for an agile, easily maneuverable motorcycle. It is more for show, unless of course you are drag racing.

Yeah, if I could own only one bike, it would def. not be a stretched busa, or stretched anything (well, maybe a nitro top fuel bike ) But if I had the means, my stable would be full of all different kinds of bikes.
Drag racing is fun, and is alot easier to get into than road racing. Now, if I could get a track bike.....

You talking about the extended swingarm or the wider back tire?

Both affect handling negatively. But if you want straightline racing performance that's the way to go.

Agreed (on both points)

If this is a 1000, why does it have conventional forks? It isn't a 600? I don't know the rules of drag racing but I guess it's legal to change forks/front ends? :dontknow:

I had already changed my post above, It isn't the same bike, but I thought that it was. It does look like an '03 or earlier 600. The bike in the vid isan '05 or newer 1000.
