The Busa is a little out of place amongst all the small bikes. I say the smallest displacement wins :)

Anyway, I vote kawi!

Busas are like FJs. Nothing can be in the same area as they are. It could warp time-space.

I have a soft heart for a non-stretched/lowered/chromed out Busa.

Ahhh, you probably haven't been here enough to know about my friend in OH with the endless FJ jokes. (They can be found 1/2 way down the page on http://www.ncsportbikes.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=10460&p=438149 )

But back to the 1989 CB-1, for folks who don't know. It is basically a CBR400 without the body and a few different parts. At the time, it was cutting edge technology. Water cooled. Gear driven cams. 110 front and 140 rear tires for incredibly light handling. Low seat height. You could get a tiny windscreen for it, which I have. The seat is a custom solo seat. The front suspension has been changed with proper straight rate springs and valving. The rear has a fully adjustable Fox shock. They make only bicycle suspension now. It has custom rear-sets (I made and sell) and alternate clip-ons to match. Those little white bits sticking out the side are custom sliders. This is my sixth one. My first one was my street and track bike for many years. One ride and you'll be in love. You'll forget about all of that fancy fuel/air mapping, adjustable seats and windscreens, hard luggage, trains...

my bike should win all of the dirt guys over, I mean, I guarantee you it will offroad better than any of the rest, especially that little ol' 300. :poke: :D

I don't know. Light weight seems to be key off road and the three hund kills the Strom in that category
