636Sinner The 'Busa is one of the crappiest looking bikes aesthetically(sp) IMO but yea i know what yer sayin Idoma.

Idoma ZX-14 all the way! I hate the way the Busa looks, the way it rides (my brother switched sides from kawi to suzuki and got a Busa so I took his bike for a spin), and the fact that everybody and their mother has a Busa. Squids who never owned a bike before...what do they get? A Busa because its cool and they want to be like everyone else. No originality in the owners at all (my brother included lol). Kawasaki ZX-14 is where it is at.

636Sinner 14 all the way baby! Well its good to see SOMEONE likes the Busa! lol Its all good just different preferences in looks i guess. I hate the way the Busa looks and i think they could do a much better job on it. Perfomance wise if i remember right i thought the 14 walked all over the Busa but they are both sooooooo out of my price range i usually dont pay much attention to either. I'll say one thing a few years ago just before i started riding i saw a brand new 14 at the Taco Hell and i nearly pissed myself. I could almost feel my inner devil slapping me on the back of the head real hard saying "NOW your gonna ride! Thats IT you ARE getting a bike!"
Isnt there one of those magazine Busa vs 14 shootout or something, i could swear i maybe even have it at home. I'll look.

He is a big dude also but he can ride that bike as its part of him.....may be he is showing me that he can't be messed with, he will chase me down......I never disrespect police for any reason, I just don't have the time and money to play their games so I do all I can to avoid them
i agree! some of those cops are nuts and have mad driving skills, big props to them, i wouldnt mess with them...ive seen all sorts of cool things..i saw a busa fly by on the freeway at night..so fast i jerked my head real fast to see what a jumbojet was doing on the 60 and i catch a small glimpse then look in front of me and its already a dot then like 15 seconds later a cop with sirens is flying down the freeway after him hahahah

this is one of my favorite videos. I don't think the guy knew he was being chase...but hes one hell of a rider..running stop signs at 100+ and lane splitting..well maybe he did know he was being chased? anyway it was in tucson az..its cool cuz you got the police commentary during the whole thing, just shows if they got the eye in the sky you better not mess with them!

So I'm sitting at a red light on dobson and southern at the front of the line with no cars behind me and basically I'm in the middle of the street in center lane..I'm sitting and I hear this loud ass bike coming from somewhere I look in my rear mirror and this 14 is HAULING MAJOR BALLS and isnt slowing down one bit...right behind me! I'm thinking "oh shit hes gonna hit me!" well he lane splits without slowing down and basically does a stoppie between me and the car to my right and i mean this car was close to me..he was BARELY able to fit his bike between us..well as soon as he puts the back tire down the arrow for the cars in front of me get to go and he just books it doing this illegal right hand turn from the middle of the intersection almost getting taken out by the people having the arrow..he goes wide open throttle and his back tires loses traction and he goes sideways puts his foot down and theres a cop waiting just perpendicular next to me the guy doesnt dump the bike but instead like i said he puts his foot down and keeps it up and NAILS it the cop threw his lights on then slams on his gas then maybe literally 3 seconds later he turns his lights off and just doesnt bother..there was a police helicopter in the area too..probably after him..it seemed like he was trying to get away from something...and quick..he looked like a straight up badass im not gonna lie haha he had like some vest on with a helmet and backpack and jeans, pretty much a squid but everything happened so fast hahah

anyway just thought id share the story..it was kinda exciting to see go down

The 14 vs the Busa has always been a big debate I thought it would be interesting to see what bike people think is on top. I know for a fact that when I saw the 14 in person I got chills and thought the thing was a monster!! Not so much on the busa..I saw the busa and just thought, crazy fast..but something about the 14 gave me the willies!
You are singing the right tune......
