I've only just got my 98' blackbird efi, I totally love it but moreso the fact it's a 'proper bike' it's almost 20 years old now but it still keeps up with modern bikes costing lots more. It's comfortable and big enough for me cos I'm 6'3. When I park up at my local bike spot amongst the waves of gsxrs and bandits and cruisers I feel proud knowing it's a respected bike. I was wondering though- is there modern alternative? Maybe a Kawasaki 1400? Bmw k1200s? I can't think of a bike that is comfortable, stupidly fast if needed and has the pedigree of a bb. When I look a 'busa's I just think of speed for it wouldn't be suitable for my commuting needs.
