New Bandit rider here! Actually, I don't have a bandit yet, but it is what I'm looking for. I sold my 1983 Honda Nighthawk650 and am ready to upgrade to a Bandit1200! I've grown up around them(dad has owned 3), so I know what I'm in for compared to the hawk. Just trying to find the right one. I've found one that I am pretty interested and planning on looking at it. It's a 2003 Bandit 1200. 6,650 miles, tires have 400 miles on them. Carbs were also just gone through. Listed for $2,900. Any pointers on what to look/inspect for on the bike? What to make sure I don't get a bad deal. Any help is appreciated!

I'm on an '03 1200S. I'm 6'5", best mod that I have done is the biggest zero gravity windscreen that I could get. Prior it was the worst buffetting bike I have ever ridden.

I am about to see how much free cable I have to see how much I can raise the bars. I ride <600 miles a week, and am getting old. At this rate my body will wear out before I lose my license.

Sounds like you have found an awesome bike.
