Q:Why did they decide to call it the “Harley Owners Group?”
A:Because the term “Special Ed” was already taken.

More importantly, who in their right mind would put fake nitrous on a Busa?

Also, they could have run it over with a bus and it would still be ugly.  Suzuki certainly had made some ugly bikes over the years, and the Busa is up near the top.

i dont mind the look of the bike as a whole, but this one takes the cake of ugly. And i agree, who the hell spends that much and puts FAKE nitro on it? WTF...

The bike could be an ex drag bike with a stock motor thrown back in to sell.

I got to the part about fake nitro and stopped reading.

Why do people say "too much to list" and "thousands invested"?  It's the same MSRP vs. wholesale price trick.  What a deal!  MSRP = $1million, but I'll sell it to you for $20!

Maybe was going for nitrous and ran out of money or something like Twisted said.  Definitely more to that story.
I'd ride it but, loathing the back end.  barf

So glad i wasnt the only one. But even if it was a drag, does he really expect to get that much out of the bike with a stock engine back in it?

How do you turn a stretched bike with a 300 tire?

I don't understand the 'busa scene. They're ugly bikes that people do stupid stuff to. I mean usually I can appreciate mods I dislike from a technical or mechanical perspective, but a fake nitros kit? Really?
