Hi - New Rider Here

Hi...I am new to Motorcycles.......was thinking of buying a Busa but have a few questions:

- Is it a good first Bike
- What is the best oil to use
- What are the best tires
- What insurance is best

Thanks and really excited to be here

If it is your first bike, I highly recommend you turbo charge it immediately.

Good luck and drive as fast as you can.
