This bike is so awesome, everywhere I go I get nothing but drools and questions. Today I rode with a bunch of zx-12, 14, and Hayabusa's. They took off flying and when I kept up with them, they smiled and gave me big head nod. Now during the 3 hour ride, I saw them get all uncomfortable, but me, I just adjusted a little and stretched my legs out on my RAW DESIGN forward control extensions. I was laughing inside and could tell that they were jealous how comfortable I looked on the whole 50-90 mph ride.

It has everything and does them all well! Power:bigthumbsup:-Looks:bigthumbsup:-Comfort:bigthumbsup:
I rode with some friends a while ago and told them of how this bikes draws attention. They were all on sport bikes, 2 gsxr1000s, R1 and a zx9. Not even a block from my place at a light and i am being drooled over from a car and saying what a bad ass bike it was! all the whild i am surounded by the sport bikes (and nice ones might I add). After the night and many more simular situations they understood what i was talking about.
matter of fact the 1 with 1 of the 1000s is trading it in on a a 9. He called me today and asked if he could borrow the bike for a while to test it out. I said i would let him take it for a test ride around the block or so but not like borrow for a while! Have to draw the line!:D

Gotta love this bike!

You are CORRECT! This bike rules. I also get alot of compliments on mine while Im sitting at a lite... They always ask what size engine is it?" I tellem its a 450cc...... Then chuckle to myself as I drive away with my HK Sideburners screaming into their open car windows. Life is good for now!:doorag:

Not to be rude or anything but if you kept up with them it's because they let you. The 109 is fast but a Busa and ZX-14 would leave you so far behind that you would be lucky to even see them.

i have to disagree.

im the only guy at work with a muscle cruiser, everyone else rides crotch rockets and we ride together weekly.

I keep up on the 109 and they all have to pick up their jaws from the pavement every week after seeing me right behind them on a big ass cruiser.

these guys arent the sunday driving type if you know what i mean.

I absolutely LOVE the attention the bike gets! Makes it even more fun to ride. I remember the first day I got it, I got more looks on the way home from the stealership than I did in the 2 years of owning my dead sexy blacked out Gsxr1000. I miss that bike :( But it was way more comfortable to look at than to ride! My car is the same way, I've never owned 2 vehicles that get so many thumbs up, or just random "nice ride" or nods from people.
Love it, makes you feel good....

I understand that they would leave me in a straight line, but this ride was through the backwoods of VA. I am not saying that the 9 will smoke them or anything, I'm just saying that they were surprised a cruiser kept up with them and was comfortable doing it.

:agree:

the 9 will keep up with them around town after that it just isn't made for high speed .... I have had mine pinned to the max the speedo reads .. yep it's fast however I get left in the dust when my buddy with his connie 14 decides to drop a gear and nail it on the highway .... I catch up to him when he slows down but come one ..... the 9 is a drag bike , not a high speed racer ....

If you are keeping up with ZX14's and Busa's then they are either screwing with you or they have not figured how to get out of second gear yet .
