I had a Black '11 'busa I used to get pulled over CONSTANTLY!! No tickets- just warnings at 120+ speeds. I have a clearance for my job and I was afraid that if I got busted for a ludicrous speed charge- I'd loose the security clearance (like a friend of mine did). So I traded it in on a Polaris RZR4. But it wasn't 6 months later and I was itchin' for the 'busa- so I bought an '11 in white. Funny- my driving habits haven't changed... I just don't seem to have police altercations on the white one.

BUT- if you're a 'busa pilot, you may want to look at: http://www.pashnit.com/product/adaptiv_radar.html

Has paid for itself like 10x over!

Our city just replaced their bikes with Victory's
My GSA in the back ground, there was no officer there to pose with it for me. But out bike cops are great guys and I hope they got the bikes they wanted.

The sticker relates to a campaign to make car drivers look for bikers 'Think Bike'

They run adverts as well... this is one of the better ones

They should run those in Australia, the only place I see biker awareness is in the loot at the pub on the door :/ And I'm pretty sure that's only there because a lot of bikers hang out at that particular pub :(
