  • newbie from PA

    hey all, just thought i would stop by and say hi. i just got my first bike recently. Its a 1995 katana 600 w/ 17000 miles. from what i have been told, its going to treat me well. one of my uncles buddy's was selling it and he knew i was in the market. i really couldnt pass up the it for $1100. i have yet to see it but my uncle is knowledgable in the motorcycle field since way before i was born (20 years).

    a lil bit about my experince. i have ridden dirtbikes a quads for as long as i could remember. the moment i got my Drivers license @ 16, i applied for my motorcycle permit and with in a month i had my Motorcycle endorsement on my DL. 4 years later, im finally getting my first bike that is mine. A bunch of my close friends have some real nice bikes. theres an 01 R1, 2 '05 gsxr750's, and a brand new r6. i have ridden all of these bikes and i absolutely love them.

    2 reasons i got a kat. 1) the price and miles...i really couldnt beat the price for this great working machine. 2) i dont need all that power that the race replica bikes produce right now. i just want to have something to tool around in and cruise with my buddies, even if they are faster. its just nice to ride.

    i have 2 other vehicles i can drive too, a 99 merc. sable and an 03 mustang gt. pretty good for a 20 year old. lol. not trying to brag but i am greatful to have what i do.

    only pic i have right now.

    and another one of my toys lol, its actually my lab supervisor's that he built in college but lets us drive it, im apart of an SAE club
