I actually think Hayabusa's ARE dangerous, and are only to be played with at your peril.
If you have the front up in the air on a scoot while riding down the road, the front wheel and guard are sensibly skinny, allowing a reasonable view. When a Busa has it's nose in the air, the front wheel/brake/guard assembly, and that bloody great fairing. is wide enough to block half the highway.
I personally think the designers should be brought to task on what is obviously a safety issue.
