well we dont need brakes. we just have a 7th gear called pose.

the bike stops, balances itself on its kickstand, and the rider automatically end up with a starbucks drink in his hand when we hit it.

cycle world did a test that showed that an 06-07 gixxer 600 can only pose .2232432 percent as well as the busa. Suzuki worked on that for the 08 gixxers 600s and the pose is up to .2234322 compared to the busa.

yeah we noticed that too but oh well i can fix that a little bit later.. i paid 1400 the guy gave me a jacket and a new front tire.. both the tires need to be replaced. needs a new chain. we need to wire up the headlight. the fairings are pretty bad though.. every turn i take its bottoms out. its lowered 3 inches, so i'll probally have to bring that up a bit.. but all in all i think i got a good deal and im ready to fix it up and make it run like a dream.

Graig and Adam came by and showed it off to me when they got it. I must say the bike has tons of potential and is the perfect starter bike. Plus its kinda cool to roll out on a old school. Nice bike and good luck with it!!!!
