I'm ok with that. Maybe a Katana will finally be able to go around corners and not weigh a million pounds.

Is that an attempt at humour?

You have to admit Bo, that was the funniest thing said today. And true.

I don't feel betrayed. I am just dumbfounded at the comparison. It's like comparing a child's kite to a spaceship rocket. I am not at all irked. I was totally skeptical when my brother kept on crapping on about the awesomeness of these machines (he has the 990 SD), I rode his and it was good, very bloody good. Then I got the 690 and I cannot emphasise enough how big the gap is between "conventional" bikes and Katos.

Here is more fap-worthy material.

In the interests of keeping this thread from becoming a Katie fest, I present one of the most durable bikes ever made, the good old 110 Honda, which much to my surprise is actually capable of doing a burnout.

RESPECT!!!

...although I might add one of these would be hard pressed to blow your hair back, you would need a good hill and a headwind.

Here for your viewing pleasure, a postie bike doing a burnout.
