YOU'RE ALL CRAZY

I've only ridden a 125 in MSF and my own little 250, yesterday I rode my friends zx9r a little... YOU PEOPLE ARE BATSHIT CRAZY! I used to dream of owning a 'busa, now I think I've changed it to a daytona and I don't plan on moving up from there. Maybe his just has a really sensitive throttle, but I felt like I was going to die. It was awsome

I have to ride my Dad's CBR1100XX every so often just to remind me that my inability to ride it at it's full potential gives me no reason to upgrade from my 600's. But that bike will make my heart beat up in my ears when I slap the throttle, it's an unreal feeling shifting through the gears with the front tire hovering above the ground.

I have a Daytona 675. You won't regret it, especially if you do track days.
I laughed at your comment...too funny. You get used to the power though. Soon enough you won't feel like you are going to die. I haven't ridden a 250 before, but there is a difference comparing my previous Busa to my current Daytona 675. The Busa really is a rocket! It's not as much fun as taking the Daytona into curves though. That's the real fun and challenge!

I am definitely sure of that one. Right now I need to get better at riding my 250 and just hope my friend is ok on that beast.

Lol. Same thing I thought. I was going to get a sv650 for my FIRST bike until I rode Ninja 250's at the MSF course. I now ride a Ninja 250 and was in the fast lane at 80+ yesterday on 45. I can keep up no problem, and its a great way to start. Believe me though, I look forward to the Sv650 soon!

I'll have about 8-9k miles on the 250 before I upgrade....

btw, its all about comfort and control levels. I'm completely comfortable revving the snot out of my 250 which you may not yet.

Someone on a larger bike has the control and comfort with it that you don't have. Comes from consistenly riding and appreciate its power.

ya, the 250 is still loads of fun, I just had never expected what a leap it would be, it feels amazing, I've just decided for now that I don't plan on going over a 750... just wanted to share an experience and my new opinion of of people that ride bigger motorcycles.

Busa....FTMFW!

It's all in the wrist, its nice to have that power, to get out some situations on the road at times!
I moved up from a 03 Limited Edition "Night Train" Harley, to my Busa! I was hooked as soon as I felt the extreme change of new found power!
Glad you realize, your limits...many don't! In due time you will feel comfortable, & only you will know when that will be Joe!

I'm on a 636 and don't feel a need to go bigger at all. I love riding liters, but they're like roller coasters to me. I wanna get on, have some fun, and give it right back when I'm done.

Had you never ridden in a fast car before you got a bike? I'd been in several 10 second mustangs before I ever swung my leg over a sportbike.
