I ride every day. Enjoyed ownership for the first hundred rides. Not quite so much for the second hundred. Fantastic bike and would not have missed the experience for the world! The power and sheer ease of the Busa has got hold. I'm not a hooligan but I do like to overtake. Hey ho - you're only young once!  New bike 2740622253

Thanks for the nice comments. New bike 3498837457 They say the bike will do 120 in 1st gear  affraid. Not much chance of that on the road but 0-60 in 2.6 seconds is quite useful when getting round a few vehicles. Most sports bikes are a bit small for a guy with long legs like me but the Busa is physically quite a big bike. The new Gen 3 which is in the pipeline will probably have traction control modes. I'm not terribly keen on bikes which override my judgement so this last of the manual fast bikes will do me fine! Handling is pretty good too for a heavy machine - the bike leans in easily and it is very easy to remove strips on the rear tyre. As with most Suzuki bikes, top features come at a bargain price - easily half the bikes I have ever owned have been Suzies! I've just got back from Thunder Road where the is one of the very last black M800's new - smoother than a Harley (albeit not v.powerful) and cheap as chips, it's the last of the cruiser bargains waiting to be snapped up. If I had the spare cash I'd I'd seriously think about one. For the moment my very early (2 years!) 70th present to myself will have the privilege of furnishing my smile for a while!

Arrived today, at last! Got out for a 30 mile spin. Wow it's so smooth compared to my K8 - everything is just newer I suppose. Screen different but airflow is fine. Keeping under 6k revs but that is still pretty fast! Out again tomorrow to scrub the tyres in a bit more. There are some benefits to being old and retired then! Happy days! New bike Rotflmao

Nice peice of kit that John...It'd scare me shitless though. I'm quite happy to measure my 0 - 60mph using only the minute finger on a watch!

I sort of agree, my old GSX did 0-100mph in about 7seconds which was plenty fast enough for me. I know if I had one of those I would at some stage have to see how fast it went  Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil =cop New bike 4004291121

Bikes are only as fast as your right hand  Laughing
Err what's the penalty for 185 mph? Transportation to the colonies I suspect New bike 2516569736 . Actually I don't think I'll go much faster than I did on my C800, the only difference being I had the throttle fully open! Too many unmarked cars around for me. New bike 394313 However,  a trip to Germany would be tempting.  Twisted Evil

Strangely enough, no! I removed the end baffles which are very puny but they are still quieter than the Delkevics I had on the K8. Looking down the cans, I see why - there is an internal baffle in the link pipe, very easy to modify opening up the aperture quite a lot. So I think a hacksaw might come in handy soon! They are beautifully made mufflers but whether they are worth £1k is doubtful. To my mind a fast bike needs sound which matches the power.
