The second yellow/black bike with the cap hanging near the back seat is a CBR 929 RR, not a 600.

Oh & the blue one that you called the R1 is actually a YZF 600 (Thundercat).

That modded busa has a delicious lookin custom exhaust. Dont like the color of the bike though but would love to hear the bike scream. Nice pics. Thnx for sharing.

Nice pics! I came across a Busa for sale,here in Houston. The guy was selling it for $15K! Looked similar to the pic eapen took, and the bike was used only for drag racing.
