what kind of bike should i get

Hi everyone. What kind of bike do you recommend. I sold my 636

1) Suzuki gsxr 1000
2) ninja zx10r
3) haybussa

the reason i like that haybussa is that its really really comfortable, but i never had a chance to test ride the other bikes. Any input would be good. Thanxxxs everyone.

Get a busa. If you cannot spell it, you are ready to ride one. Get full coverage insurance.

I hope stunting on a 'busa wasn't on your list of "things to do before you die"

The Busa is an uber comfy couch and depending on your size (I am 5'11 180) you can tuck nice and tight behind that screen and faring and feel no wind

if you want comfort get a cruiser, if you want speed, the 636 is obviously more then you will ever need

Can't compare the busa to either of those if you ask me, as you are going to want more comfortable, get a busa or a zx14, but if you want power and able to flick faster get a liter bike. My zx10 I rode over 400 miles on Sunday through the twisties in Wisconsin, and I went to Southern IL in late March and did 1000 miles in 2.5 days. No problem yeah you get a little sore, but they ain't sport tourers.

The liter bikes will be just like your zx6r, but with more midrange punch and a little less flickable. The busa is a bus.

My vote on a big comfy bike is a Concourse 14!

comfort level depends on ratio of ass fat to ass muscle and length of arms.

short arms and bony ass? get a busa.

long arms and a big ole ass? get a motard.



although, I hear these are cute... and cushy too.




seriously? comfort? motorcycles are NOT about comfort. They're about performance. Go to the library and read up on old issues of cycle world and other magazines to get an idea of whats best for you. Good luck.
