Back in 2001 I bought a second hand (or more likely third/fourth hand) Suzuki GSF1200 Bandit (Nekkid however, not the S version), I had previously owned a Suzuki GS500E commuter bike (500cc flat twin). I was 20 years old and had 'tricked up' the GS500E to look like the streetfightered (term ... Read review

I was 20 years old and had 'tricked up' the GS500E to look like the streetfightered (term for personalised/modified bikes) Bandits I had seen all over the place. I unfortunately crashed that but just found it as a good excuse to have it re-sprayed, twin spotlights added and renthal ..." Read review

Best Bike I have ever owned

AdvantagesEconomical, Comfortable, Powerful, Predictable

DisadvantagesHaving to buy extras to make it acceptable to me.

"...my way up to a Suzuki GS500 in 1998. Joined an advanced riders club and got through the advanced test. Then started looking round for a big bike to suit me. I like the sitting up position, I'm not a sports bike rider. I wanted 4 cylinders for smoothness, I wanted a fairly light bike as I am not a strong person, so I had to give thought to getting it on and off the centre stand and in and out of the garage. I wanted a large capacity bike 1000cc+. I'm ..." Read review

Bring on the muscle!!

AdvantagesEasy to ride, comfortable, effortless

Disadvantagescant think of one

"An accident in 1993 turned me away from bikes but the bug started biting again and the urge to get back onto two wheels started to get stronger. A very cold winter on an old CB 250 RS.........my Dog!........and seeing friends and family on bigger bikes spelled the end of the old Dog, although I still do have it. I have always lusted after a maroon 1200S ever since they came out in 96 but thought of them as big heavy and cumbersome things and ..." Read review

Bandit 1200S rocks

AdvantagesPower, Cost

DisadvantagesSplit interests

"I bought this bike from a dealer in the fall of 03. The "S" bikes come with a 1/2 fairing on the front, rather than the naked look of the 1200. I got the bike for about 6K US dollars. I don't know how many pounds or pence that is for your Brits. If you're looking for an old man cruiser, then get a cruiser, man. If you're looking for an all out crotch rocket, then get a full fairing sport bike, but be ready to pay 10 grand or so for those suckers. If ..." Read review

The Muscle Bike

AdvantagesTorque Power Comfort Grin Factor Price

DisadvantagesRear Shock

"The 1200 Suzuki Bandit has always been the choice of stunt riders and for good reason! The nature of this motorcycle is, well, a little skitz! One minute your gently crusing along country roads with your gal comfortable as it can get, sitting in fifth gear without a murmur. Then, when your ready, lift up that front wheel hold it through the gears and finish with a stoppie! What? the same bike? oh yes! The rear shock lasts about two years befor going ..." Read review
