In my bedridden boredom (I know..... I sound pathetic....), I chanced upon a picture of a 2020 Suzuki Katana.
In 1983, when I was a young soldier with more money than I ever had in my life, I decided to buy a brand new bike. It came down to 3 motorcycles: The Suzuki Katana, the Honda CX turbo, and the Yamaha Seca turbo. I decided on the Yamaha.
Looking at the 2020 Katana has brought back a flood of memories. This is a bike of my youth........ Can a 60 year old look good on one of these?? How can I justify this as a touring bike?? Will it be worth the divorce settlement???
Seriously though, in 1983, these looks were cutting edge, and Iím looking through nostalgic eyes. Iím just curious how yíall think the looks of the Katana compare with the looks of bikes today?
