    Whilst negotiations regarding trade levies and imposts on imported motorcycles were occuring in the USA, one of the Japanese Suzuki negotiators spent may dollars on higher classed women than Hugh Grant did whilst in the USA..

    Thus, when once again, much Jack Daniels had been consumed (I can confirm that for a season in the mid 80's this was the drink of choice for many of the top Jap execs, having been in their company back in my old racing days), it became obvious that his exploits with two women needed to be told whilst in the Sauna of the hotel.

    Thus, whilst struggling to name the new model bike from Suzuki, the tales of legendary bed time bonanzas with blonde, big breasted round eyes was also being told..

    So, the name katana was arrived at whilst an absolutely blotto Jap on jack Daniels was expounding and expanding the tales of his bedtime exploits with the two big breasted blonde round eyes, kate-n-anna..

    Which when slurred in japlish whilst under the influence of JD, soon became the story of the legendary night with kat anna.. Which of course, soon became the name for the new bike, the Katana.. Referring to the night when even though drunk, he managed to bonk doubley, with his sword! So kate-n-anna soon became legends of the drunken double edged sword!

    I mean it, this is all true.. Would I lie to you?

    It happened exactly as I am telling it to you now, whilst standing on the surface of mars, enjoying the view
    pain killers working then mate
    cheers

    yeah man, as far as i know the gpz900r was the first ninja. and in 1984 the gpz900r had the most narrow, compact inline 4 ,jap motor that produced more hp than any other jap bike in the year. ohh yeah and also considering it was water cooled. that was a big deal.
    my 9's like a N.D.E.

    Ninja is Japanese and it's tough and elite. They wouldn't call it the Kawasaki ZX10R Geisha Girl.
    Love The Ninja.

    the design of the kawasaki bike really hasnt changed much over the last god knows how many years
    Four important things to remember in life

    1) Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for eachother exceeds your need for eachother.

    2) Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.

    3) Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

    4) When you lose, dont lose the lesson.

    This bike looks strangely familiar.
