:evilgrin Hi,

Im probably going to buy a 600RR this season, but I was wondering what year the busas became fuel injected because this is another bike I would like to buy if the first gen EFI BUSAS are around the price of a new RR

thanks
:)

troyjohn,

you sound a lot like someone i knew that wanted to get into riding. never been on a bike before, but he wanted the biggest baddest fastest most powerful bike going. at the time, it was the bus. he wanted it just to be flashy, to be able to say he had "the best of the best". all he wanted really was to be head and shoulders above everyone else. had he bought the bike, he would have either binned it on the way home, or it would have sat in the garage beside his supercharged datsun roadster and collected dust.

Well I happen to think they look extremely cool and are totally bad ass. Maybe he's not into draggin a pucks?

Every bike has its purpose and the Busa' is a freeway jet fighter. I'd love to have one for touring or doubling or as a 2nd bike.

Busa's are big, ugly (IMO) and who needs to go that fast anyway.
I know if I had that kinda power when I was younger I wouldn't be here right now. I like bikes with a little character, and to me the Busa doen't have any.
600RR looks like it would be fun to ride though.

You just have to get used to doug's particular brand of humour. Being a first time poster troyjohn, you haven't been able to warm up to our resident cantankerous crank yet. :D

well your story is fiction to start this would definately not be my first bike. As you can see in my profile I had a cb750c. And I dont own any import cars.

the thing you got right is that I would like to OWN a big bad bike, but who wouldnt?

the only thing thats hurting is your story

oh and I looked at your pictures and my statement of you being a pecker muncher is now solely based on your pictures.:laughing :laughing and not your story which had no relevance to my post whatsoever.

where did i say it was your first bike? i simply stated you remind me of someone who is all about bling and not substance. it just so happens that the person in question had never been on a bike before. small difference, same MO overall.

there are plenty of people that have no need for a big bad bike. they don't need a penis extension. you seem to, since you wanted a tricked out r1 for pocket change, and practically shot loads over a scam ad for a bus.

the pictures i have of pocketbikes have little relevance to your desire to show off for the world. they were another time, and another place. you had nothing to do with that time and place. many people here did, and enjoyed what we did with them. it wasn't showing off, thats for sure. if you are so disturbed by images of my former hobby, i'll take them down to save you from further pain.

+1 for Doug.

But thats only b/c Im one who appreciates the art of riding and dont care much for the image. Im not saying its bad to like "badass" machines, they're just not for me.

Troyjohn, sorry, but your posts come across as though you're a 19yr. old newbie, regardless of the truth in that. Many of us have probably been there at one time or another, but this is how the responses fly around here to those sorts of posts.

It seems BCSB is quite Elitist.
