Nope. Nothing compares to a Harley. Anybody that says a gixxer is better just cant afford a Harley.

Re: Curious

The busa will redefine "powerful" which I hear all the Harley guys talk about.... and I own a M8-107 FLHX.

Re: Curious

Your knees wont like the sport bike at all.
Harley's are a better choice on a long ride, but for quick trips under a few hours the Busa will be great.

Disagree completely..
Buddy/I knock off 450-500 mile days not a prollem, just gatta get used to the riding position/performance and ya will have a big shit-eatin grin on yer face. He is mid 50's and I will be 75 in august, if I dont git shot by a jealous25 year old husband first.

Wrong ... the busa makes a great touring bike.

Itís on the sporty end of touring such as the zx14 & blackbird.

Iv extensively ridden all of the above , and still own a super blackbird , brilliant bike for long distance.
