Deaf Bandit Biker

Post  auslanOZ on Mon 09 Nov 2015, 10:07 am

Now a rider of a 2008 Bandit GSF1250S, two weeks so far...

Sold my old Yamaha scooter last month after a few years riding the Majesty 400cc as a BAB (Born Again Biker) after over 25 years absence of bike ownership.
Not including times I hired and rode various bikers in Europe & Oz (1999-2001) - e.g. Triumph Trophy 900;  Buell 500;  Harley FatBoy;  Harley Softail ; plus one or two others I forgot.

Will soon do a 1800km round trip to Melbourne via Central NSW and back (just not keen on Hume Hwy)...

She can't be too bad if she allows you have a Bandit, so welcome to both of you, look forward to catching up some time.

I simply told her that the old bike has been finally sold. Came home the next day with my Bandit - and that's the first time she heard about this particular model...

Welcome to the forum OZ. 
The Not Bandit (1250) are a great bike. I'm sure that you will have a great relationship with her. 
Lots of great laughs and advice here.

The 2008 is still a real Bandit (especially if it's red).

Should eat up that Olympic Way trip pretty easy, though you might want to get a lambswool seat cover if the original seat is still on her.

The "not bandit" is the GSX but we make an exception  study
