Ban­dit, de­mand it…


I own a 2003 Suzuki 1200 Ban­dit that I’ve had from new. It’s still in good nick and does every­thing I want. It car­ries me and my wife with­out a grum­ble, and keeps go­ing on min­i­mal main­te­nance. Cir­cum­stances mean I don’t ride as much as I’d like to, but it gets a run out as of­ten as pos­si­ble. I’ve looked at new bikes, but I’ve found noth­ing that’ll do what I want as well as the old 1200 (have you seen the tiny pil­lion seats on most new bikes?). And noth­ing af­ford­able – we’re not all on huge salaries. This means the old horse will carry on. Maybe not what you want to read when you’ve a vested in­ter­est in sell­ing new ma­chin­ery.

We love mo­tor­cy­cles, old and new. Just look at Bike Life (p116). HW
