Another bandit on the roads around Perth

Post  chirpa on Sat 25 Sep 2010, 7:37 pm

Hi there.

I'm now the proud owner of a 2010 Bandit GSF-1250SA.
This is my 5th bike in 5 years. Previously I've had:
1994 Kawasaki ZZR-600, 2004 BMW K1200GT, 1998 Honda VFR-800 and 2006 Triumph Sprint ST.
Who says there is brand loyalty these days.
I was looking at the new GSX-1250FA, but could not find a demo to ride on.
McCulloch Suzuki suggested I try the GSF-1250SA, and I loved it, so I bought it.
See you around the streets of Perth and beyond.



Cheers
Craig.

Welcome, do you change your bike as soon as the ashtray's full Laughing

Great effort though, you're on a winner now.

How do you find the Bandit after the Triumph?

I ended up with the FA, I couldn't get a demo to ride & ended up just taking the punt buying one untried!

Love it.............it's a good all rounder. Very Happy

Welcome. I am interested in your thoughts on the Sprint. I was going to buy one and couldn't get a test ride so I bought the Bandit. ( which I am very happy with) All I have seen is the glowing reports in bike mags and after owning a Boulevard I know 90 percent of what they write in reviews is bullshit. But I still sort of lust after the Triumph every time I see one. Rolling Eyes
