Update 21/11/1999 : I think I’ve just joined the Suzuki Cycle Web-ring but I’m not sure just yet. I’ve also included your starsign’s lucky number ! These seem to differ dependent on where you did your research. I still haven’t finished the Anime pages as I’m still trying to finish watching the videos ! I’ve managed to strain a lower back muscle somehow and I haven’t been riding for the past few days. I can’t even stand properly or walk straight !
My Hayabusa will have its center stand installed with the recall stuff this Tuesday. I would have done it myself but they will have to take of the fairing anyway, and besides it too …. hot. Sure I’ll be under the house but the humidity will have me drenched by the time I walk down the stairs. It is that bad at the moment !
While I’m in a incapicated state, I thought I might explain the comparsions I often put up on the site with tthe Hayabusa and the CBR600.
I admit that comparing the 2 is not really approprite as they are 2 different type of bikes built for different purposes. Thus, these sort of comparisions are rarely if ever done by main publications for that reason. Comparing the 2 is interesting reading anyway. There are many readers who are considering Hayabusa, but want to know what it’s like before they buy and want a comparison to smaller capacity machines which they may currently have.
And If you really must know the standard CBR600 does handle much better the the standard Hayabusa when the roads are curvy and going is quick. The CBR rider certainly won’t be able to lose the Hayabusa but its a win to the CBR nonethless. But for general road riding both are pretty much the same bar the precisce handling characteristics of the CBR600 vs the sheer accleration of the Hayabusa. In traffic a Hayabusa rider vs a CBR600 going for it, the Busa rider is going to win any sort of comparison purely because of the emormous straight line speed. My preference, is the Hayabusa for many reasons other than the performance.
RECALL stuff : The parts are finally here ! I’ve been booked in for Tuesday so next week. So next Sunday you’ll be able to read of my Hayabusa impressions after the recall.
