Even though I just recently purchased my R6, I am already starting to think what my nex tone should be. I figure that I am planning for a year or two ahead. I know, I know, that a lot of things will change by then, but for the time being, I think I wil be looking at a used (2008) R1 or used (2008) Busa. Used, because this is in the future :D

I really like riding sport bikes like R6 and R1, but I also commute a lot and love going on long rides. Right now I put on 1,000-2,000 miles/month. So, the R1 would be awesome on performance and will be great overall. But the Busa will be VERY comfortable and wil offer a lot of power and performance too.

What do you all think?

If you arent blind you will hate the Busa.
Fixed...

If you're wanting comfort then go with a cruiser. In my opinion our bikes are not meant for the strait long hwy's...If you're set on the sport bike and can handle the power of this type of bike go with the R1. And if you want a bigger bike go with the Kawi 14.

But Kawi 14 looks ugly as hell, while the '08 Busa is pretty nice

The kawi can at least turn...

The busa cant turn for anything and i agree the kawi is ugly, but the busa is even worse.

yeah...i've never liked the Busa look. Looks too much like a Can-o-tuna (Katana). I'll stick with my R6 for another year or 2 then upgrade to an R1 (or who knows maybe another R6)

i personaly think the busa is a pussy bike you cant turn on it and its ugly as hell
:stupic

I think Busa are for paper stats and saying I've got a 1300 when people ask the engine size. Other than that - it's useless especially for commuting, IMO. Check out how much that beast weighs wet. I wouldn't be lane splitting with that. Busas can turn, but you seriously have to push it, plead and convince it that it should, not like an R6 or R1 where thought = action.
