1 of 1

I had found my heaven. I have not sat behind the wheel of a car in 3 years and clocked up 59k on the two Bandits and 2.5k on the new Suzuki GSX-R 750 K10 that I have been the proud owner of for 6 weeks now.

The sports bike just had to be tried out before my back gave in to old age, and to be honest I`ve not looked back.
