Its incredible... i've finally got used to the handling differences between this and a motocross bike. I raced a gixxer 750 the other night and it was a cake walk. I hope kawisaki keeps in this new direction of building these bikes that create a new notch higher up the ladder. Also, i must tell you about this, i know a guy, hes NEVER ridden on a bike, i CANNOT talk him out of trying to get a hayabusa. I want to know if there are some videos i could get to show him what will happen if he gets that bike. BTW his reasoning is that hes too fat for anything less. He weighs 380lbs...

Tell him to get a cruiser. The busa does not have the agility like 600's such as turning. Sure he'll have speed, but than again power to weight ratio will suck ass big time for him. You should tell him to buy a 600 and spend the other part of it that he would have used on a weight clinic class. 380 is a lot. That busa won't run shit with that weight on it.
As for the videos, go to kazaa type motorcycle, you'll find lots of crashes. They even have a few with busas, but don't let him see the busa hitting 220 video. Then he'll really want one.

Drive it like you stole it

He'd be better off with the Busa at that weight. Or maybe a VFR or similar. He'll want something with a lot more torque.
