    2009 Busa Rider

    I dropped my bike off for service today at lunch, and when I'm there a guy is dropping off his silver 2009 Hyabusa for it's 900mile service I think. I realized that the guy was close to 60.

    i just thought that was cool. You never know who is under the helmet, and the motorcycle doesn't always give it away. Just thought I'd share.

    There's a guy up at the Hess off SR 50 & Spring Lake, I forget his name, and he rides a turbo Busa, with an air shifter (?) and he's about 67 years old.
    He said it's pushing 275 hp.
    He rides with his feet on the back pegs.

    That thing is insane for any age, but at the same time that's cool he still has his love for it.

    Hmm. Perhaps in this case is just another "the bike fits the rider".
