The Katana

     Got a new Suzuki Katana 750 motorcycle for the millennium.  It's a maroon 2000 model. To the left here is a picture of the new wheels at my old grade school in Sterling, MA. 

     All year, the only thing I had been thinking about was getting a new motorcycle. So here it is. My friends will be glad that I can stop sending them the tired old picture of this bike from the Suzuki website.
