PNW rider's check-in thread
« Reply #60 on: January 27, 2007, 06:41:48 PM »
Just saw this thread. Heya folks! Im pretty new to this forum but have already found an endless well of info for my rebuild. Im doing a ground-up rebuild of my '01 1200s. I had the bad pistons in mine and replacing them somehow snowballed into the biggest project ive ever undertaken.

Oh, and i live in Burien, right behind the Seatac airport

not problems, im just able to talk myself into "while im replacing this, i might as well replace that" and upgrading everything somehow. A piston swap became a frame up rebuild somehow lol :beers:

Just pick up a wineberry? (that's what I call it) 07 1250s. What a ride !!!! Perfect for Marine View Drive, out in the Federal Way area. I have already custom pinstriped it. Along with my 05 C50T, this is going to be a great summer.  I look forward to meeting up with some of you..

That's an interesting twist... buying a bike to match your helmet.  :lol:

Lewis County B12 Owner Checking In
« Reply #68 on: June 09, 2007, 03:35:43 PM »
Hey all...

New to the forums, but, read a LOT before posting.

I'm in Centralia; just picked up my 2nd B12 ('03 Silver B12S, starting mods)(had black '98 B12S).  Nice to see there are a few owners/riders of Bandits in WA and up North.  I'm looking to do some weekend rides up on the Peninsula over the summer.

If ever heading down I-5 through my area, drop me a line.  Or if planning a ride (I see there is one two weeks from now, but I'll be out of town.... drats); please let me know.

Glad to be here!

You can bank on at least one run down the east side of St. Helens - that's in your back yard!  :motorsmile:

YOU wanna set a date? Any idea is FS99 is open out to Windy Ridge yet?

Just about to break 500 mile. Now I can rap it up to 7000 RPM. I reset my suspension settings, and I'm looking to roll. I just hope the weather will be better than this weekend.

Not sure, but I can check on it today.  I've been spending the last few weeks just scouting roads as much as possible up on the Peninsula, Grays Harbor, Lewis and some Cowlitz County.  Rainier got hammered pretty hard last fall, will never be the same again.  I'll post tonight or tomorrow on FS99.

Soonest I'll be available is June 29th.

Checking in here! Live in Snohomish and work all over the area ... wherever duty calls. Picked up a new Bandit 1250 lately, and I also enjoy occasionally poking holes in the ozone layer with my old GT750 2-stroke.

I'm always up for a ride and meeting fellow twisty lovers. Drop me a line!

97 Bandit 1200s
« Reply #73 on: September 09, 2007, 08:34:54 PM »
I have a Blue 97 Bandit 1200s like the subject says and live in Kirkland, WA.  Lately I have been going for long rides on the weekends with my dad Red01 (for people that frequent these boards).  I would love it if a few more Bandits wanted to head out we usually go 1 day early till late on Saturday but whatevers clever.  I definately want to hit Baker (again  :motorsmile: ) and I dont think Hwy20 will ever get old.  Also want to get down to the West side of St. Helens and maybe even over to the Old Spiral Hwy once before the season ends.  

So if your going on a ride or would like to go on one hit one of us up and lets do this already.
I do what I can do when I can do it.
