...and make new friends everyday.

Ahem...


Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean the whole world isn't out to get me.
Words mean things.

My life is not without meaning. I can be held up as a bad example.

The seat height is "only" 33.5" (851mm). I don't know how much "squish" there is, but I comfortably have the balls of both feet on the ground on a HP796 (32.5"/825.5), and I'm only 5'6" (1.68m) with a 30" (762) inseam.

Conversions included for our metric friends.

I'm the same height and have the same inseam and I can't do that.

It must be my giant balls getting in the way again.

I don't have that issue. I'm half Irish.

Power = more than 150 hp. Maybe as much as 190. Still searching for exact figures but I keep cracking a phat and passing out.

KTM is now producing a modern version of the 1981 Suzuki Katana in orange.
