I know what you're all going to say.. "squid, at least take the MSF class first" I am looking for either a 250-400CC sport bike or a 250-600CC cruiser. However, if I found a deal on a F3 or F2, I would've preferred that instead. Anyway, I found out about a Katana 600 that had been laid down. Some garage is fixing the mirrors and the turn signal, and they're selling it for $1500. Of course I'm going to check everything out and make sure it's running before I buy anything, but I was just wondering what kind of bikes are the Katana. Are they faster than the average 600? Do they handle well? Is it relatively hard for a beginner compared to a CBR600? The reason I think I can handle a 600 is because I don't go fast and I won't show off by doing stupid shit. The bike is to get me from home to class and vice versa, and maybe even going back to my hometown once a week. But like I said, I'd prefer to start at 250. It's just that 600CC doesn't turn me off the way most people say it should.
