There's no recent or active Katana thread, so I figured I'll see how it goes. I got my 1994 600 from the original owner with 5500 miles. It was supposed to be a "compromise bike" for me & my wife to share but she's new & not into this bike - at least not the pilot's seat yet. Otherwise, I might have gotten a 750 or 1000. Anyway, I love it. It goes plenty fast for me. It's very smooth for a bike that likes to be in the 6000-12,000 rpm range. I realize that they get a bad rep for being cheap and heavy, but it's got all the power I need. Top speed is between 120 & 130 but I havn't gone all out onit yet. My friend got a ticked for 81 in a 65 - almost $300 !!!! I'll keep it under 100 for the most part. Eventually, I need to get some bags mounted up so I can travel on it. I don't have any trouble doing 2-3 hundred miles on it. I am currently getting my Garmin GPS hardwired into it. If you have one, lets see some pictures.
