Every machine has its pro's and con's, but it is very hard not to defend something that you have invested a lot of money and time into, because we have to justify our decisions and actions not just to others, but to ourselves.

Every time I talk to a fellow rider, I always ask them how do they like their motorcycle? I always follow up asking if there is anything they do not like about it. It is easy for all of us to play up the things we like about our bikes, yet there is typically something that is annoying, something that we think is ugly, that is less than perfect, or something we just dont like about our motorcycle.

So, I ask you, what do you not like about your motorcycle?

The Busas brakes are very lacking IMO for such a heavy/powerful bike. This can be improved as with everything else, but it is my number one dislike.

And it is a bit heavy...

The one thing I dislike right now is it's in a box 6000 miles away from me

I can't say that there is anything I dislike about my gixx 1000. I actually made it a point to find another 04 after my last one got totaled.

I dislike the carbs on the 01-05. I have mine jetted perfectly (flat 14.7:1 mix from 2k-redline), but the cold weather starting has always been a pain.
I know that the new FZ1's are FI, but when the R1 went to FI, they should have done the same with the FZ1, same engine.

All the broken fairing pieces, and all the misc scratches that occured this winter. I also wish that I didn't have to remain at 11-12 grand RPM to have great power response (maybe I should get a 1000...).
