as my first bike? "1998 Suzuki Katana GSX 600; about 1200 miles; price: $4,000; garage kept; couple of superficial scratches from being dropped" it is from a friend of a friend. I am a little wary of the "being dropped". I have never heard anything good nor bad about the Katana and since i am very new to this, i figure i would ask the experts. I take my MSF course on May 3rd weekend.
