    For Americans to turbo and nail in a straight line, perhaps chrome the wheels and extend the swing-arm (adding a NOS bottle) ride with no helmets and the film biker boys. That's about it lol

    And for Englishmen to buy when they turn 60 and use to commute on in full textile gear, never exceeding the speed limits and generally looking like pricks on bikes that are uglier than the women they married 30 years previous.

    On a serious note it's a big bike and not the most agile, it's heavy but if speed is your thing then it's for you. I can thing of a few similar bikes like the ZZR 1400 but not a bike for me.

    I'm seriously thinking about it as my next bike . either zx14r or the hyabusa.i prefer haybusa. but never ridden one. only concern is weight and i am happy up to 130mph won't do more normally. I'm thin and like 60kg only. wanting busa as i like the look and would use it for turing

    Busas are generally built for straight roads, which is why they're so popular in the US and not so much here.
    Both the Busa and ZX14R are old men's bikes IMO, a late midlife crisis gone horribly wrong.
    Busas are the kind of bikes you go out and buy after the doctor tells you you've only got 2 weeks left to live because then you've got 2 weeks to try and beat his prediction.

    I think of a lot of bikes better for touring, hell my R6 is perhaps better. Why only 130mph? If you're going to speed go all out because at them speeds it's going to be a ban anyways and I'd doubt you would survive a crash beyond 130. I'd go sit on one but if it's touring you desire go look at some adventure tourers first.
