Default Enough

I'm a noob and have no experience to compare my Kat with but having said that; it will shrivel my balls on command. I wus out at about 110, don't really care how much faster it will go. It's there and definitely enough.

My GSXF 600 from 2000 hit 125mph on a freeway and still had plenty of power left to go higher.

Don't know, don't care.

It goes where I point it, handles just fine, stops well and goes as fast as I need it to. What more could I want?
