Wow I have to say that I love this community already. Today is my first day as Iam a newbie and I have no riding experience. I am looking for my very first bike. I am about to take lessons in a week or two. I must say If I had my choice I would go with a kawa zx7r or a Gixxer. I love em, but Iam a newbie so I may as well do this right.
Right now Iam looking at a price range of around $3000, this doesn't give me very much choice. Seems that It is either a very early 90's cbr 600,kawa zx6r zx7r, or suzuki GSXR 600 or 700. But I just found this 1998 suzuki katana 600 for around the same price as all those early 90's bikes. I beleive that a 1998 must be alot more reliable than a early 90's bike. I know that the katana is more like a street sport bike rather than the supersport that I want, but I know the practicality of it too.
What do you experts think out their. Is the katana good for a first bike. Does a 98 katana for around $3600 sound like a good deal. Can the katana do all the crazy stuff that a 600cc super sport can do (once I am not such a newbie). Anything I should watch out for?
