Hayabusa owners sign in thread

Can't find many Hayabusa threads here, post up a pic of your bike and tell us about your Hayabusa.

Mine is a silver grey 2009 and of all the bikes I have ever owned, this one still delivers the biggest smile.

I miss my 2000 Busa..Had to sell it my neck could not take it anymore after 26,000 miles..seat was just too far from the bars for me..I miss the torque and pure power feel and sound.

I had a 99, 04 and this 08 .. by far the best freeway burner there is..
The new "super speeder" laws in Ga. and thier severe consequences have decreased the number of times I get to pull the trigger but I know a few places..

Yeah .. hey, been working all day. the tankbag is a Cortech and has been a good fit on several bikes I've owned.. I'm not sure which model, but it holds my wallet, phone, water, plug kit/air, and more for quick retreival.
I like your 09 too ..
You ever heard of "GrkGrll" ..(greek girl) on labusa forum ?? Theres not too many female pilots on these bikes, although a couple of women have bested my top speed at Maxton on thier turbo busa"s ..

My g/f is eyeing up the 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10 . I find women on sportsbikes to be pretty fearless

I don't own a Busa, but I am taking a new interest in them. I'd like to see more pictures of the "Limited Edition" models with the different paint schemes. So far, I like the 2006 white and silver variation. What do you have??
