A new toy...

  1. Hopefully I'll be picking up a companion for the R65LS later this week.
    Another Hans Muth design (well almost - I know the 550's not a real Katana) :LOL:


    It's close to roadworthy and should be fun. :LOL:

  2. Damn straight. :p
    Still a nice bike though :).
  3. I just knew I'd better get in first before the Katana owners did... :p
  4. It's still a kinda-Katana, though :).
  5. probably more a swiss-army knife than a Katana...

    Useful all-rounder rather than cutting edge.

    but for nine hundred bucks... :p :p
  6. I dub it


    not quite a katana :p
  7. I rarely name bikes or cars but I think ana might just stick... :LOL:
  8. A more appropriate name would be tantÃ…
    That's a short sword/dagger designed for practicality rather than appearance and used mainly by women and for committing suicide :LOL:

    Edit: IaitÃ… might also be appropriate - that's an imitation Katana :p
  9. Ana is good - exactly half a Katana as in 550 is half of 1100 :wink:
  10. Looks like fun, for 900 bucks you cant go too far wrong. :grin:
  11. Yeah...I think Ana is a biatch. All go no brakes, and she'll spit you off before you even think about tipping her in.

    Take care...oh I ride an '86 vintaged bike.

    Good luck with new bike Tony.
  12. Bloody people with late model bikes...

    :LOL: :p
