  • hello from Maryland

    hello,
    my name is Jon(as you have probably figured out)
    right now the only wheels i have are a 97 toyota tercel blackhawk...
    93 horsepower 1xx ft lbs of torque 40 miles per gallon...
    i got tired of being held back from the speed potential(ha ha it really does have potential) because of my parents and money and time constraints so i have decided to buy a bike...

    as of right now i have my eye on a 2001 katana 750 or a 2004 katana 600
    im leaning towards the 750 because i need some speed but i have no riding experience, hopefully i can learn to ride on this very tame bike and once i get bored get a little crazy with a swap and maybe a turbo project when i have the funding if it is possible yet... i am not very familiar with motorcycles but i am pretty good with my tercel...

          Welcome to KR! Katanas work well as beginner bikes, but if you really need speed, why not trade the Kat in once you're more skilled for something faster and lighther? It will probably be cheaper than heavy modding.

            thanks for the warm welcome!

            i would consider a trade in but as my first bike, it will have alot of centimental value so i wont want to let it go...
            same for my tercel...
