Nice! I came very close to getting a Katana. The insurance cost killed it for me, though.

I'm old too, but NJ is out of control for insurance, especially when it's considered a sport bike.:(

Nice :) And wow, only $300 for full coverage? I'm in my mid-20's, so I'd of course expect to pay a decent amount, but I was quoted $3000/year for my GSX-R (as opposed to $270 for liability). That's a pretty huge jump from your price to mine.

Anyway, you should try to jump a bridge or somethin!

Stunts like that are what drive the insurance up:p
Besides, I'm scared to get hurt!

Is there any good place online to buy aftermarket items?

Some place trustworthy...I want to get a new pipe.

Try kneedraggers.com or twistedthrottle.com. I've used both, no problems and decent prices.
Also, check out riderforums.com for info.

No, that is the stock paint...it is not even broken in yet. It is the 750...very smooth bike.
