Chris Sedition congrats on the bike. the only bit of advice i can give you is be *extra* careful for quite sometime *after* you get comfortable with the bike. perhaps even MORE careful than you are now. Once you get over the intial intimidation of learning to ride, some things start to become second nature. as such, you let your guard down a bit...and as soon as your guard goes down inexperience can bubble to surface in a very fast a dramatic ways.

IF you are responsible about it you can handle a busa for your "first bike". But it all depends on who you are, your background and how well you can keep your ego in check. With a smooth throttle hand and in the lower RPM range they really are big pussycats.

That being said, a handful of throttle in 1st or 2nd gear will have you looking at the sky.

One word of warning, don't forget it. On a busa, when you are going fast, sometimes you are going faster than it "feels" like you are going. Be weary. In 3rd gear the difference between 80 and 130 is like 4 seconds.

Be careful man...and congrats...they are great bikes. Try these mods...

Double Bubble windscreen.
heli bar risers.
TLR footpegs.
Man you are always going faster than you think on any bike.

marvlover fuck all of these nay sayers .. get your self a jet kit toss a 15 to 20 shot of nos up under that bad boy crack the trottle ballz to the wall baby


by the way there is no need for a helmet either those are over - RATED

ROTFLMAO


on a serious note we are mostly experience crotch rocket riders on this site and we have all heard the same shyt from nubes who want to gain street credit without earing it by actually aquiring the skillz the be a respected rider; instead they go out an buy the biggest and the fastest just so they can say DUH I GOT A BUSA.

You may have others believe you will not crack that trottle but I wasn't born yesterday everybody cracks the trottle son and if you think you wont you are lying to yourself.

I am not hatin do you, but like I said this story I have heard b-4 and the ending in never good. Be Safe

Wow. I only have been riding 13months so I no seasoned veteran to be talking with years of experience. But I can see how you like the large feel of the busa but getting a cheap bike would really not be a bad idea. You can focus more on learning and less on your 2wheeled rocket. Sure you can get away with only riding that bike but that is a rather extreme choice. I am 6,1 220lbs and I can ride a Ninja 250 just fine, I love my 2nd bike Ninja 250. Its so easy to throw around and very forgiving. Finding a old cheaper 1k bike like others have said can easily be resold 6months later. Yes of course it feels like a toddlers bike next to a Busa. A Miata to a Viper would feel like a toddlers car too.

That is one smoking price you got and I am happy for you. Very nice ride, just be careful and always focus on your riding. Don't day dream about anything, read as much as you can, grab riding books that explain correct techniques to help aid you. Ride safe and have fun.

slick1537 I think 2 grand off a brand new bike, whatever model would bring me right back into teh dealership. As for starting big, there are lots of threads about why its a bad choice, but again I don't blame you because I was going to get a 1000, I just decided I am gonna go to a 600. Be careful have fun.

JeffNights Hey people, thanks for the replies.

sorry I havent told you about the ride home, i've been busy actually riding as much as i can before having to put it in winter storage.

Ya know, I was kinda kidding when I implied that somthing "happened" on the way home.

I understand where everybody is coming from when saying its not a good first bike. Of course its not, I agree. But i'm not reckless eithier. I've got 400 miles on it so far and no troubles...I have no desire to ride this bike like a bat outta hell. Like I said before, i like the feel of this bike, it fits me in my opinion.

Yeah, And i did sit on a coupel very small bikes, the ninja 250 and another model...felt like i was on a damn toddlers bike. Thats not an insult, please dont take it as such. I'm just a big guy.

Well, did you make it?

s0meguy Busa for a first bike? ANd i thought i was crazy for hoppin on a 600 as my first (and i was as the scars i bear remind me). Sounds like a death wish to me. Even if you do baby it, one twist of the throttle in to low a gear and you better be holding on tight or its gonna hurt. I'm not one to be giving advice but come on, Do you think it would be smart to buy a Z06 as your first car and learn in it? I dont.
