Nice pic.

The salt adds a pretty significant variable in the available traction. I ran best 197 timed mile with a 199 gps my first time at Bonneville with a stock motor, stock header with no mufflers, power commander with out of the box tune, tre, and gearing of course. I had a PERFECT track, wind, temp, etc. One less tooth, a proper tune and any decent exhaust would have likely put it over 200 that day or most days on pavement.

I ran quite a bit faster this year, but I also brought 50 extra horsepower and a host of other mods. Consistent 200s regardless of the track conditions come with a significant price tag.

Body size plays a huge role as well. My dad was a consistent 8-10mph slower than me both years, and I guarantee he was twisting that throttle just as hard as I was! I'm 5'8, 170 while my dad is 6'2, 225.

Im Looking VERY Hard at a 99 in Copper. Genmar Risers, Yoshi Slip Ons, 20K miles for $4,500. Know the owner very well and have ridden the bike a bunch. Rides very well in near stock trim.

Qwik, you need to jump all over that thing....if, at least, for the collector value. 99's were "the" Hayabusa, and the copper is classic. The bike was actually painted to match the natural markings of the peregrine falcon for which it was named. Like the '77 black and gold (Special Edition) Trans-Am's, most people beat the shit outta' the original specimens. So, if you can talk an owner out of a nice, well-kept machine...well, I wouldn't let the opportunity pass.

IMHO, they all do. That is the amazing thing about the 'Busa...it is extraordinary right out of the box.

If I had it to do over again, I wouldn't have done a damn thing to mine. I made the mistake of taking something that wasn't broke, and "fixing" it.



BTW, please post pics. if you acquire that '99.

This was taken in 04 in Strawberyy AZ. The GSXR1000 behind it is mine. The seller is an old and trusted friend. I went with him (I drove actually) in my truck to Denver to pick it up.

Do Geico and Progressive include medical coverage? I don't think State Farm does, and that might be why they are so cheap... they just cover the bike.

Yep...best-kept secret in the motorcycle world, as far as I'm concerned. I've had all my bikes insured by them. When you hear Geico and Progressive talk about their "love" of motorcycles, what you ought to be hearing is that they surcharge anything that's not a 250cc beginner's bike.

Use to have three bikes, two cars and the house with Allstate. Busa was always liability only, due the cost. Moved, got a quote from State Farm, Busa same rate as my Harley, fraction of the cost. Gave Allstate the oppty to match, they said no, so I moved everyting to State Farm.

Richy, That touring setup is gorgeous. For the price I am paying on the bike (Well Below Blue Book) I am getting All the original parts/exhaust. A set of Stands, Stock screen, Hump, Passenger seat, and all the factory manuals and papers with a full history on the maintenance and all the services and tech services that have been done (Including the CCT updates)
