Hayabusa question?

Do they turn like a sport tour bike or more like a cruiser.
Been looking into a semi touring bike but not ready to accept old age yet. They feel really comfortable when I set on one for a bit.

Hayabusa question?

It's like a haul Caddy. They turn like a sport bike. They get up and go so quickly that you even realize how fast you are going

Thx for the info. Figured the weight And wheelbase would make it a bus. I ride with passengers a lot too and that little 600 isn't super comfortable. I'm a big boy to begin with. does the length help keep it on the ground? Or does it bounce up like a 1k.
Thx

Hayabusa question?

It will come up if you let it. It's heavier than a 1k and that helps keep it down also.

I love lookin at all the extended swing arm busa's at rally, ppl put some money into them, but not my style. I wanna turn
Thx for all the info, you hear so much about it from ppl who probably have never ridden one hard to come to a conclusion.
But was it comfortable

Mine is sitting at 7" over right now. I prefer 1/4 mile racing though.

I can promise you I would be 5 times faster at the dragon, parts of the Hill Country, most the the smokies and rockies, on a Motard, I would be 4 times as fast if I were on a Daytona 675, give me a Dr350 with knobbies, and I would embarrass a 'Busa. BUT, but, that is not the 'Busa's element.

Take Hwy 12 in Idaho.....99 miles of big 100 mile an hour bends and sweepers.
Yes, a 'Busa would be in its element....for the most part.

The 'Busa is a sport touring bike.....very sporty. Not a canyon carver, or track bike (NOLA maybe....). There are people on this site that could NOT run the busa to the limit on 3090, or any bike for that matter. I KNOW there are guys that would laugh at a busa if it even tried to keep up with the 600 sportbikes. Aint happ'nin'!

That said, that is why there was a keke at the end of it. Humor, please find some

They are a excellent choice for you it sounds like, u are a big guy and your partner will be way more comfortable than any other ss bike, and they corner purdy dam well, I have taken several trackdays with mine and they do very well, especially for a big guy, I,m only 150lbs and can throw mine around purdy good, of course it isint quite as quick around a small track as a 600 or 750, but at your skill level I dont think you could make a better choice

The rider is more a factor then the bike
