Well...I did it. I found a great deal on a 2000 Blackbird and traded my VFR800 in. I pick it up next weekend. To this end I would like to say a couple of things. (1) F the busa. Yep thats right. F the busa. To all those b's on the street that dismiss the Bird nowadays because of the "all faster" busa. Get a life. Take them both to the track....and then will see who comes in first. Not to mention you can go a hell of a lot futher on a BlackBird across the country then you can on a Busa. Want a true track rocket? Buy a R1 cause and R1 is gonna take a Busa and a bird down everytime on the track. In my mind the Busa and the bird have the same performance. And you can actualy take a trip with the bird. Oh yeah..half the guys buying bikes because they go fast? Ha! Half of them do not know how to ride them. Its all show. Hhahahaha! SO there I said it. I just bought the best damn bike in the world. Nuff said.
But I have to wait a week!!!??? Shoot me now I cant take it.

Well congrats on your Blackbird Alpha! I have never ridden either the Bird or the Busa, they're just too damn big for me. They are both great bikes though, for what they are: Monster straight line bullets! I will say I like the look of the Bird much better than the Busa, especially in the new grey.

Actually they put out the Busa in a Blue white/silver color this year...and it looks well ahh.. nice. Yep nice. But it doesnt change the fact that the Boous is still uncomfortable as hell. Oh yes..Titanium is nice. I am pretty damn happy right now. Just...another.....6.....days.......

Alpha, congrats on the new bike. Solved your VFR hop-up dilemma, didn't it? I know the Bird is pretty heavy, how does the weight compare to the Busa and the ZX-12? Sitting on one on the showrrom floor, it feels like it carries the weight very well.

Congrats on the double X!! I love those bikes, they're quite big for me to handle too. But, TJ wants to get one eventually and I'm sure he won't be able to keep me from trying it out.

I don't care for the looks of the Busa either but the new color is better.

My brother works at a motorcycle shop as a mechanic. They do mods to some of the local track bikes and street racer bikes. They also do testing for some of the local small time teams.

They installed a NO2 kit on a CBR1100XX, fitted it with aftermarket pipe and did some fule mapping then did a top end test for the owner. My brother took it to 206mph in one mile from a 100mph roll-on. Made a real nice video of it also.

Should be a very fun bike. Enjoy!

Very cool. I have been thinking about putting on a MR. Turbo turbo. Claimed performance is a 9 second 1/4 and a 230 - 40 top speed. Not bad for the $2800 they ask for it. We shall see.

As if the bird wont be enough....for a while.

Out of curiousity...where does one take a bike to get it to go 230-240? I can't imagine any tracks have a straightaway long enough for something like that and I really can't imagine that on the street. And also, are the regular race tires rated for speeds that high? That would be a bad time to shred one.
