After 20,000 miles, I decided to sell it to pay off a motorcycle I just had to buy earlier this year. It was a regrettable thing. This motorcycle has wrapped my head around what perfect handling and engineering can do for a riding experience. If I were not a die-hard cruiser compatriot, it would be my forever ride. The ABS delivers and the smooth torque and confidence of the seating position and hook up of the suspension got me thru emergency encounters with wild animals, ice, mud and thunderstorms. For less than $9k you can have your BMW and afford to take trips on it too, this is how. Love life and ride what you love, but know that sometimes choosing passion may mean leaving perfection behind, such as the case with this flawless flogger of hill and freeway. I never prematurely shredded my Road Pilot 2's I ran on front and back, but they do make harder rear tires if you have a heavy right hand that will give you lots of wear. Ride safe!

One great bike at a outstanding price. This is a bike that when one rides it, one buys it, and forgets about profiling!

I've have so much fun on this bike, it's my everyday ride (only bike). My last bike was a 1976 Yamaha XS400 a long time ago. I changed my mind numerous times before settling on the Bandit 1250 SA. I'm certain the ABS saved my life on a wet road one afternoon when a truck switched lanes and didn't see me. On long trips (over 900 miles on one trip) or short trips to the mountains and back the smiles keep coming. My only complaint is the tires keep wearing out (especially the back). It has loads of torque to play with. There is a winding road close to town that all the sport bikes ride on; they seemed shocked that I keep up with them on such a big bike (weight-wise). I would like a more comfortable seat for longer rides. The stock seat is good for about an hour. This is a fast bike for me. The top end is right up there with the gentlemen's agreement. After 2 full seasons of riding I still can't get enough seat time.

I would not judge this bike on the dyno chart, quarter-mile, or lap time even though the numbers are not that bad. The Bandit was not intended to be some Hayabusa-beater. In real world situations ridden on the street, this bike has instant-on-performance that can not be quantified by dyno charts or quarter-mile times. The Bandit looks good, is comfortable to ride, has plenty of power and speed, and lots of great features like ABS brakes. I put the carbon yoshimura exhaust which sound so nice, and I get about 42 to 50 mpg. The bike handles great on all types of roads, and the hills are a lot of fun. This bike can keep up with any sport bike out there. I couldn't ask for a better bike for the buck.
