 Thumbs Up  I can only imagine the ride on a 'busa!  Holy *feces* indeed!


I'm actually a very [read: extremely over the top, annoyingly so] conservative rider.  I learned some hard lessons early on in life. 

I haven't had the bike over 65 yet, and will never have the front wheel off the ground.

I truly did buy it for the gas savings.  I'm not really into the whole "riding" thing like Claven or spacey.
I have yet to harden the requisite *fudge* up.   Punch Balls

But I figured like everything I do, if I'm gonna do something, I do it with a little flair.  Grin

Holy crap, that's quite the bike. [$.02]Buy a good helmet (seriously) and strongly consider an MSF course. [/$.02]

Otherwise all I can say is: dude.

In related news: the weather is finally decent here and my dumb ass took my bike into the shop for some service yesterday. It needs a part they don't have in stock and have to order so I won't get it back for probably at least a week.  Sad

 Grin  I got the matching Suzuki factory race helmet made by Shoie.  400 dollar helmet I stole for 100 bucks. ('nother story  Wink )

I've also got my 2 piece riding leathers picked out.  295 delivered.  Boots 79.00.

I don't ever have to ride it.  I'm just gonna get dressed up and park at the 7-11 and look good.

It's amazingly smooth.  One of the things you get from a higher displacement.  Plenty of dump your ass power if you want, but actual trip through the power band is synced up nicely.  Unlike the rocket 600's that are snappy, and people get stupid with.

Been following this bike for a while, and read an awesome review from a writer that took the bike on a 1,000 mile tour through Cali.  Very interesting take from him that sold me on it.

Well, then hell, you shoulda got the 'Busa, squid.


Passing the MSF course usually nets you a 5%-10% insurance discount.  And if you don't yet have a motorcycle endorsement, it also gets you out of some or all of the state licensing test.

May I recommend to you www.newenough.com for apparel and non-Suzuki parts?  Family-owned.  VERY good service, painless returns.  And they know the stuff they sell, so if you have any questions on something or are just unsure, you can call and immediately speak to a knowledgeable human.  Rare these days.

Re: riding gear -- first rule is to make sure you'll use it.  The most protective stuff out there is worthless if it's hanging in your closet while you're out on the road.  Second worst is that the bike and gear stay parked because it's "too much hassle" to suit up.  HTFU.

What's a Gixxer 1000 get, high 30s per gallon?

Sweet.  Thanks Clive.  I'll definitely check 'em out.

Agreed on the gear.  Thanks for the reinforcement.  It was part of the pact with Karen.
As well as No Bike After Beer.  Ever.   Ok.  I promise.  Seems like a no brainer, but remember who you're dealing with.  Grin

The research I did had a few people blog with trips averaging mid 30's.
I'm planning on a little higher seeing I'm a *humid grotto*.

Strog actually sounds knowledgeable about a topic other than Fleshlights and beer. Who'd a thunk?
