Hi all thought I'd introduce myself names Andy been racing bikes all my life on and off road,until a big spill in 2011 in wales ended up in hospital for nearly a 1 year and 5 spinal ops later,by 2012 I could walk Just!!!!! Having sorted my health out I now want another bike again (am I mad ) I've been looking at bandits 1200,s but on a 2k purchase budget they were pretty crap then I noticed a few streets away a gixer k1 750 with a for sale board on it,but on closer look it was a k1 1000 so I asked the price £1800 with 21k on and fsh ,but it had been stood a few years ,so £1800 later it's now mine.Now the reason for a bandit was power and riding position as I have a 12" inch plate screwed to my spine so I can't bend to reach the clip ons ,so will do top yoke fat bar conversion ,the plastics and carbon front guard and carbon hunger will be sold so the project begins,pics to follow when I work out how lol.Andy
