Hi from the Hawksebury

Post  twowheeldan on Sun 01 Jul 2012, 6:38 pm

Hi guys and gals,

Name is Daniel, just bought a K9 Naked 1250. Maroon with bag rack and windscreen, 21000kms and looking forward to extending my ride distances.

Bit of background, 29yrs old, been riding for 10yrs, had all manner of bikes - r1, vtr, zx12, gsxr, cbr etc etc but looking for reliable, daily commute and something the missus can jump on the back of without nagging me for the next 2 day about her sore arse!!! Also something that doesn't destroy my shoulders and back from imitating the casey stoner body position!

I test rode a gsx1400 and the 1250 bandit and it was splitting hairs but ended up with the bandit as it just felt..... i don't know... like the one?? if you know what i mean.

Anyway, i pick the bike up next week and am looking to getting out on one the ride to meet some new people.

Cheers Daniel

G'day Dan, I'm sure you'll meet a few of the bandit mob down your way as there are a few of them not too far from you, I think. Any, welcome along.

Welcome Dan. Looks like you've had some potent machinery before the Bandit.
