Not mine. Dents look like they could get pooped out. Inside looks really good!


17 Apr 2017 - Spring Break n Garage

The bike did't sell, camping trip was canx....so a little play on the Bandit.
I'll more post pics later.
Moved rectifier and electrics, carbon fiber case covers, mounted overflow tank, and some touch ups.


My 2001 B12 has begun to stall out occasionally when starting.  I haven't done much trouble shooting yet, so I only have basic data at this point.  However, on the off chance someone else has seen something similar, I'll go ahead and post early and solicit ideas.

But today I got the GSF400 out for its first good ride in the Denver area (I've test-ridden it around my new neighborhood but no long rides until today).  Riding in Denver is very different from Spok...
