2001 Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa - breakdirt916

    Agreed it is pretty good and lighter than other bikes this size...actually easier to roll around than expected...it’s just during the roll one I was really on the front brake limits hoping to scrub speed more quickly. The only real solution for me is to slow down.

    Rode Ortega highway today with traffic and did not pass many cars. Even aired to 42psi these tires were too squared to lean...and dare I say, the Vstrom was more fun in the canyons!

    Oh yeah and 85 miles later my rear end is sore. Bike feels a little cramped on the legs for long rides although you can slide pretty far back on the seat if you have long arms

    Rode out to wine country







    Ha, babying it under 5k all the time, gentle launches, so far I got 45mpg over 118 miles

    EDIT: speedo is off by a lot due to re-gearing...so more like 36-38mpg

    345th EDIT: pics, also I was super sore by mile 180-200ish...even with the gel seat...guess I gotta build my endurance. More day trips

    rode alongside 3 lamborghini's out...did not race any. let the s1000rr go past me in the canyons.

    Here it is when I rescued it from under a cover in Coxsackie, NY back in 2013. Had to remove the muffler to kitty corner it on this clearly too small trailer.

    Who is KLp?

    But ya it is definitely a bike worth saving... it is a good piece of machinery

    I had my first couple emergency stops and the last couple days. Rear brake was easier to lock up then expected so definitely more front bias braking. It stops just as well as most other bikes, so just don’t outride your brakes, eyes up and keep a good braking bubble.

    Bike does randomly cut out 2% of the time...definitely need to check that FI code someday

    Also got a road speed related squeal developing up front (happens with engine off) so so am guessing it is wheel bearing time

    But man, this passing power/torque in 6th...is it addicting? Will all other bikes be measured against this?

    Also I am pretty sure I enjoy California 10x more than any other transplant, since I enjoy the weather daily, beat traffic, park more easily, and see other bikes on my commute. Man the non-moto peeps are missing out...
