prolly cheap. if you have your heart set on a katana, then get one. you wont be disappointed unless youre expecting to run 11 seconds on a quarter mile or something. other great bikes are the ninja 250, ninja 500, gs500 and the sv650, and the ninja 650. both of the 650s tho are twins so theyre pretty torquie, but none the less good solid comfortable bikes that can be had at a great price. good luck on your purchase and keep us updated.

this thread is still going? lol


I think Azylum hit the nail on the head when he made his bike recommendation lists and w the words he chose in his responses. We have peeps running 250's through the forest AND passing people on 600s until they hit the straights.

that means someone has learned to develop skillz(im guessing from not jumping the gun and working into a bike not up to it.) Yes, potentially a larger cc bike will accelerate quicker. I wont dismiss that.

Azylum you honestly recommend this guy to buy a 93 katana..at least get an 02 katana if you gonna get one
not because you dont wanna do a forest ride. the forest ride has a few curves in it and youre afraid of them. thats what the SS bikes were built for, and youre afraid of them. so in an indirect way youre admitting youre afraid of your own bike. nothing wrong with that tho. ive been rding the same bike for two years and it still scares the out of me from time to time. your opinion on telling someone to start out on such a powerful bike is wrong. dead wrong. are you TRYING to get someone killed? i never recommended the "93" katana, just said that IN MY OPINION its better looking. however, it is a lighter bike, and more forgiving than the later generation. if you would pay attention youngster, you wouldnt jump to so many conclusions. you seem to think that power (that you obviously dont have a clue how to use, nor are you interested) makes your bigger. sorry, it does not.


it only makes MY bigger.
