I got my first motorcycle the other day. I have a hankering for a GSXR like I said earlier but I shelved that about a year ago. For some reason the prices seemed to go UP in the winter (go figure?) so I've been biding my time. Well recently I found a used 2001 Katana for a good price and took it. I took y'alls' advice (and the advice of others) and started off smaller and cheaper. I can upgrade in the future and this bike does have plenty of power. So far, I'm loving it despite what people say about motorcycles and "crotch rockets." Ride to live, live to ride!
