Great bike, great roads!
Two years ago, my husband wrecked his Suzuki DL1000 V Strom and found a new bike to replace it with, a Suzuki Bandit.
He couldn't go pick it up as we were living in Reno and the bike was located in LA, and his broken arm hadn't yet healed. Well, he asked if I would fly down and pick it up *for* him! No problem, hon!
I picked up the bike on a Sunday and proceeded to make an 800 mile/2 day trip out of my ride home and by the time I had arrived, the Bandit was mine. ;)
It all worked out when he took my previous bike, a Triumph Sprint and traded it in on a 05 Yamaha FZ1. Then everyone was content!
The Bandit is TOTALLY my favorite bike ever. I truly can't imagine being more pleased or having more fun!
