Thanks, LR. Speedwise, the 1125 isn't going going to blow your socks off compared to the Hayabusa, but it is plenty quick. I went back and read the review on this site for the 1125. It made a comment that I see as right on the money compared to the Japanese liter sportbikes. It doesn't have that sudden warp-factor the Japanese bikes have, it just keeps pulling hard all the way up to redline (10,500). I was impressed with it when I was done. I wanted to keep going. There is definitely none of the kitbike feel to it that some of the old Buells had.I'm sure it is a nice enough bike when you compare it to the air-cooled Buell, but what about when you compare the Japanese and Italian, and British competition? I will try to ride one, but after owning a Hayabusa for 2 years, I'm not sure I will come away all that impressed. If I can get a ride on one, I will report what I think of it. Oh yeah, It's nice to have you back. Hang around and have some fun.
