@kev MOT of the faithful bandit once I get the new headlight fitted next week 👍

@bigbrownepaul mines die an MOT in a few weeks, sure it’ll be fine though. Bandit 6 or 12?

@kev bandit 6 bought as a budget bike when my new house requested every penny I owned! Replaced a beautiful 2014 Fireblade 🙈

@bigbrownepaul I used to have a B6 as my workhorse bike - the thing was bulletproof and surprisingly fun to ride.

@kev yeah lot of dosh too and still enjoy pootling about on the bandit

@bigbrownepaul the full naked bandits are like rocking horse shit these days - all the ones on Auto Trader etc. seem to be the part-faired version. Which is what I had...

@kev yep very nice machines but no where near the quality of the Yam

@kev Easy to convert to naked, about 30 mins of unbolting the fairing etc then Street Triple headlights mount right up the the headstock holes on my Mk.
Just need to create so indicator mounts (£12 off ebay) and bobs your uncle naked bandit with OEM quality headlights. The aftermarket lights are somewhat variable in quality.....

@kev So I might have just gone mad and bought myself a CB1000R with a full Akra system.........

@bigbrownepaul ooooo nice! My little brother has the "baby" 650 version - they're lovely bikes.

@kev yeah the 650 does look good too! Having owned 3 Fireblades over the years this is the best compromise for my older bod.....
