Dedicated to the women who RIDE THEIR OWN motorcycles
2005 Suzuki Hayabusa
submitted by Sue R.
The Busa is a totally sweet bike. I've been riding it now for 8 months
and there is not one thing that I don't like about it. I did have
lowering links put on to lower it 1". That helped tremendously with
stability when coming to a stop and backing it up. I recently had Heli
Bars put on the bike and I do notice the difference in my hands not
tinkling so much.
Sport bikes are known for your fingers going numb after
a while. The power is obviously mind blowing on this bike but the nice
thing is that it is such a smooth power. It's not a violent thrust as in
other sport bikes. I can idle down slow in 3rd gear without shaking or
chugging down, then give it throttle and fly! It handles and corners
smoothly; a little heavier yes but not a problem.
I am 5'4" tall and
weigh 130 lbs. and I do not have any problems with this bike at all. I do
however draw a lot of attention from the guys! Basically, their mouths
drop when the realize it's a chick on that bike!
