I've seen the 'Busas handle well, but not the lowered, stretched type and not with a guy who "doesn't think much of turns because they're just not that fun."
Those Biker Boyz geeks aren't motorcyclists anyway...

are you kidding me sarge? busas handle like crap and anybody who rides one or buys one is an idiot and can only go in a straight line... ::)
I aint calling anyone an idiot forthe bike they buy....to each is own...but the point I am making is that any given rider, at any given riding level, will, IMHO, be a better rider on a smaller bike, than a Busa. (( The point of Shagz's post was about this Busa dude giving him advice on riding the Dragon on his SV))

Sure, people will post that they have seen guys ride Busa's well, or they had one and rode it well.....but, I think it would be hard to argue that each of those guys would ride a smaller bike better...at least at a place like the Dragon.

Oh, not fair. Since Stranger has limited his posting here, and others have calmed down busting me, when have you seen a recent jab like that from me?? Haven't.

at least you know that much, ive come to that conclusion also as thats what is keeping me off those bikes (besides a test ride or two here and there).
After getting more miles on my bike after the Rally (since I went down there with pretty much a brand new bike, and 10 miles on the suspension) and fine tuning the suspension.... even that was beginning to scare me a little. It was so planted in turns that I couldn't get it going fast enough to make me scared.... thats an issue right there. I hopped on my buddies R1 and hit some roads.... doing the same turns triple digits... Exhilarating, and painfully easy.

HA HA HA Yes, I post again! And I just might post again.

Granted I am not as fast as you guys.  But I am getting faster every year.  With a better suspension it is easier to take the curves I ride everyday faster.  But that is why I upgraded I don't want to be scared, but I see why you don't like that.  It gets you to feeling all safe and you could start to become lazy.  Next thing you know there is a guradrail in you grill.

Thats just it though.... where do you draw the line? Inherent risk continues to raise with speed.

I forgot to add that I knew this guy was full of poopy when stated this early on in our conversation: "Well, you know, I ain't afraid to lean it over. I've dragged peg on this before."

::) Uh, yeah, Steve... the pegs are 5" from the ground on your bike. I'd be surprised if he wasn't draggin' peg on the way to the grocery store.
