First bike

Hey my name is Matt from Morton Grove I'm 24 purchased this bike June it's my first bike it's a 1996suzuki Katana 600. Have put a little over 1200 miles on it since I got it. It's been a good starter bike but I do plan I getting something bigger and much newer year lol.

Congrats and welcome Matt! MY first bike was an 02 Katana, loved it and a very forgiving bike. Easy to also do your work on her. Ride safe and stick to your limits!
