Hey if there is a lot of wind out there. Does it affect the GSXR 750 that much. Or is the 750 pretty aerodynamic. Or would a busa handle the wind a lot better.

Being that the Busa is heavier it would be more stable on the highway .

Aerodynamics only come into play when riding into the wind. When it's blowing across the road bigger bikes suffer the most- I've seen Gold Wings on a straight road leaned over almost to the point of scraping the floorboards!
For you Johnny D, the 'Busa is probably the way to go, it's weight should keep it from blowing over when parked at the local DQ. Plus, there's more area to mount neon and chrome to.

Suck mean people!

My gixxer is like a sail in a cross wind almost to the point that it makes me literally switch lanes...not fun to ride in

God are you being sarcastic, or is it really that bad. Strong winds effect your ride that much?

Not to mention sportbike regenerative turbulence, that's the worst thing about having one.

well think about it this way..the whole side of your bike is enclosed air cannot go thru from the fairings....unlike a harley that has no fairings and the wind can blow right thru... and no i am not kidding, it can get that bad
