NEW MEMBER FROM PAKENHAM VICTORIA

Post  straff1250 on Mon 14 May 2012, 6:49 pm

Hi everyone.

I have been reading the forums for a while now and thought I had better join up!!!! This bike is my all time favourite having owned cruisers and sports bikes. I have owned my 2009 Bandit 1250S for just over a year now and love every minute on it. Love the torque and instant power when you need it. The only thing I disliked about the bike was the way the handle bars are bent inwards too far. I looked at all the options of buying a new set but couldn't really find anything that suited so I decided to modify the stock bars which has worked out perfect!!! Only thing I have done on the bike is fit a Yoshi SS pipe and fitted some heated grips because I can't go all winter without riding the beast. Cheers Andy.

Welcome to the forum

Hope I am doing this the right way???? I would be happy to catch up for a ride one day. What area do you live? What is your favourite ride? The last ride I have been on was a 2 day Alpine ride about 6 weeks ago so I am hanging out to get back on the bike. I have just done a 12000 K service on it with oil and filter, plugs and a new rear tyre. Cheers Andy.

I'm in Carrum Downs mate.
My favourite day ride is Berwick-Worri Yallock-Healsville-Marysville-Reefton-Launching Place-Gembrook-Pakenham then home.

Would love to do the Alpine ride one day, just need to find the time.

That is my favorite ride too!!! As well as adding in King lake and Yea in the loop.

Me, my brother and a mate do the Alpine ride every year around March so I will keep you posted when it is if you would like to come along.

Let me know when you get time, and we can head out for a ride some day. What model Bandit do you ride? Cheers Andy.

Sounds like a plan, do you get any time off during the week? I prefer the spur ride on weekdays less idiots out there.

I ride a 2011 GSX1250FA

Me too on the mid week ride. I usually use my RDO to get out there. How about we keep an eye on the weather and pick a good day to go. Then I will try and get the day off.

Cheers Andy.
