    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 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..:evil

    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 .. :eek1

    I just found this thread myself, and figured I would join in ! I don't have any pics of my '08 with me, but it is the fastest color... Blk & Orng :evil . It is set up more towards drag racing, however, I ride it in every form of sportbike riding there is ! Long distance trips, tail of the dragon, and commuting. It has a mild adjustable 4-6" stretch, Ti Force 4-2-1 full exhaust, pcIII USB, etc. etc. My first 'Busa was an '05 Blk & Slvr which I wish I still had :cry , however, she was sold in order to buy the Victory Vision.

    '03 here. Mine is not only incredibly versatile and fun to ride it gets used to schlep stuff around all the time. I leave a Ventura tail bag on the rack all the time. Come to think of it, I've never even had the hump on!

    08...love the beast. Makes a great sport tourer! And if I don't get on the gas too much will get the same or better mileage than a VStrom 650...

    Perfect looking setup. I'd like one with a Giant Loop Soft bag, risers and a touring screen.

    I've just replaced my B-King with a white 2010 Busa.

    I fell in love with the engine in my B-King (same). Just superb. Nothing else compares (and I have owned a ZX14 and an XX)

    I intend the make the Bus a mega sport tourer.

    :evil

    Pick her up in a week.

    Can't wait.

    :D

    Thanks for starting this thread! I'm shopping for a nice Busa to use as a sport tourer. Any pics for inspiration would be terrific. :clap
