I have a friend with a 'busa here in Detroit, and let me tell you, the potholes here are as bad as Pak. I have a 2005 Ducati Monster S4R 996 and it is much lighter, but I think a lot of stop and go traffic will be difficult with such a beast. Get a smaller literbike like mine..still very fast and cool, but 100 lbs lighter. The only real difference is all out top speed. Do you really expect to take advantage of 182 mph vs. 172 mph?
