New Bandit owner

Post  redsurfer77 on Mon 25 Feb 2013, 11:48 am

Hey everyone,

Apologies for posting a topic before an intro...my bad! Was just so excited in getting the mods installed.

Living in Sydney area, and recently upgraded from a Hyosung GT650 to and 2010 Bandit 1250S - wow what a transformation. Loving the comfort, ride, power, basically everything about the Bandit that my trusty Hyo didnt have. Bought the Bandit as a weekend toy.

Looking forward to being a part of this forum.

Welcome to the forum Matry. I upgraded from a GS500F so I can appreciate your excitement.

Hello Matry and welcome to the forum.
I upgraded from a GV650 to a GSF1250 as well. I can relate to your elation. The Hyo was great as a commuter but when it came to weekends it didn't enthuse me much.

Hi Redsurfer77 and welcome aboard. Sounds like you have one of those tailtidies that you have to hack and reuse part of the old fender. Errrr. There are ones that replace the entire thing and I would imagine are a lot easier to install. A couple of members have them so they may be able to help out. Enjoy.
