Hello all,

I have a new GSF 1250SA. Absolutely the best bike I've had. Makes me smile and sing when aboard.

I sold my 2011 650 VStrom for the Bandit. The Wee was a good bike, but nowhere near the fun on the road as the Bandit is.

Cheers.

Me too, although there were a couple of other bikes in between the weestrom and the GSX1250FA. Certainly gives me a silly grin....javascript:emoticonp('Very Happy')

Greetings Bandit Riders from a New Member Empty Thanks for the Welcome - handle explained

Post  GGiant Tue 01 Jan 2013, 7:51 am

Thanks everyone.

I will explain my handle "GGiant". Slightly embarrasing to admit but true.

It has to do with my first impression when I rode my new Bandit - a 'Gentle Giant'.

A big, smooth, silent, weighty, not snappy, comfortable, neat and not overstated, veritable torque factory. In fact, without being totally childish I hope, I refer to my Bandit as "GG".

Thanks in advance for your understanding of silliness, GG just has this effect on me. Smile

Happy New Year and many happy Bandit K's to you in 2013.

G'day GG, enjoy the new beast.
I found my bandit a bit too quiet after my SV 650s that had a standard can, so along came the Delkevic can, & didn't that put a huge grin on my face. Twisted Evil

Thanks for that re my pic. I really like this angle. The business bit of the Bandit.
