Cool 1200s rock

From my experience owning 2 Suz bandits....the 1200 is by far better.....wopping 1157 cc vs the 599 cc lil bro....the 1200 is smoother, quicker, and better mileage.....I envy some of those brother sport bikez like the gxxr 1000 and the Busa....My bandit no match but all in all yall who have suzuki good on ya!

He's catching up!! lol

I voted the Z1000 because thats the only bike I have ridden from the choices offered.
Cool bike styling was modern and the power was right there.
I havent rode any other bike that was offered in the choices but I'm sure they all have their weak/strong points. Just gotta try them all and see what fits you.

I hadn't ridden any of them but looks alone, the Kawi really started my interests in the naked bikes and as ugly as it is, the BKing has started growing on me too...

If he just joined now, how could he have offered his opinion on this topic back then? At least it was a decent post with a valid opinion to consider.

Just look at Flipside's tricked out 9'er for inspiration.

That bike is AWESOME! I don't think it could look much better than that. Is that a custom made exhaust on it?

Vans & Hines worked with Roland Sands to fab that exhaust:

I've been wanting to contact them (V&H) to see if they can build more so I can buy one!

Speed Triple, Tuono, 919, ZRX1200, FZ1


Yeah, my 919 was 3rd in my list, but I got a great deal and jumped on it! Never regretted my decision though, and it turned out to be the best decision as soon as I discovered it was a Jack of all Trades (though Master on none). Well, maybe Master of the practical street bike.


Now I want a Street Triple!!
