I took a ride to Suzuki Demo Day. I went specifically to ride the Hayabusa. The Suzuki sign up clerk said that she could not let me ride the Busa because I had to ride a sports bike for three years continuously in order to qualify. So I signed up for the M109. One of the Suzuki reps said that if I could ride a M109 then the Haysbusa is no problem.
The ride was about 30 minutes thru a series of curves and straight aways to open her up. The riding position took some getting use to and added pressure on my wrist. The 2018 M109 shifts 1000x better than my 2008 M109. It was a great day!!
