Post  Doc66 on Tue 04 Oct 2016, 8:14 pm

Already posted a coupla notes.
My name is Doc. Older guy. Own a coupla HD's .
Have always kept a a ricer in the garage for work as I ride every day to work hail, rain or sun.
Recently purchased a 2011 Bandit and have been lurking here and other places learning the 
bits and pieces with what makes Bandits tick.

Welcome doc.  I had a mate that went from a bandit to a tl1000, zx14 and then a Harley Davidson. I think he regrets selling the bandit.  How do you like the Bandit over the hd tractor?

Welcome Doc, I graduated from a Dynaglide FXDC to a Bandit, love the handling and get up and go, hate chain adjustment and oiling. Still, better on a Bandit!

Easy bike to ride.
Came with the Scorpian slip on and a 45L Givi top box.
Bargin at $6K with 4700 Km's on clock.
Fitted low touring bars, ZG touring screen, bark busters, Arrow headers, pair and O2 removal and resistor modes and wired in head light relays for a set of 80W head light bulbs.
No problems doing night shift now.
Just fitted Michlin Pilot Road 4's as the stock Dunlops were shot at 9000K.

Still love my Harley's for the grin factor and enjoyable cruising ride , but the Bandit will be a great work hack for the next 4 or 5 years.
Will do a ECU piggy back when wife stops bitchin about the $$ going out the door.
