Question by Russell E: What is the difference between a katana 600 and a normal gsxr 600?
Please im thinking about buying a new bike and the one I found online is a katana but I dont want to buy it if its not what I want.
I always wanted a sports bike but never had enough money to buy one till now. I had 1980 kz750 up untill a couple months ago when i sold it that i rode for about 6 months or so. I want the bike for recreational rides i already have a truck to commute.

Best answer:

Answer by The Champ
The GSX-R is a highly focused track tool with a very narrow powerband, close gearing, unforgiving handling, relentlessly responsive brakes, and a ruthlessly commited riding position.

The GSX600 (Katana) is more of a economy commuter with an ancient chassis and engine design. It is also a heavy, softly sprung wallowy pig, and has wooden brakes.

Dont buy either one.

Update with your riding experiance (have you ridden dirt bikes, do you have a rebel 250, are you a Moto GP champion etc) and how you intended to use the bike you want to buy (commuting, short recreational rides, touring, trackdays etc) and I will suggest a good bike.

Give your answer to this question below!

Question by : Were original greek bronze statues painted too?
Currently it’s pretty big news that greek and roman marble statues obviously were painted. Also everything indicates that this must have looked hideous if you apply our modern standards, but whatever. I learned in school that many of the greek marble sculptures are in fact roman copies of greek bronze sculptures (because the romans needed the bronze for making weapons but being more cultivated than medieval christians, who just destroyed the artworks for being unchristian and mostly nude, made marble copies before melting them down).

So what I want to know is this: Were the original greek bronzes painted too? Which of the marble sculptures with paint found on them are greek originals and not just roman copies? If none, is there any proof that greek originals were painted at all?

Best answer:

Answer by Daniel
I don’t think that the original greek bronzes were painted. The bronze is formed as a cast to keep the sculpture uniform. Basically, the sculptures were hollow to seal in the layer of bronze. Here is a useful link that I found most interesting about.
