Suzuki 1200 Bandit

The 1200 Bandit was bought in November 2015 to do a trip to the Isle of Man TT races plus a spin around Southern Europe in 2016. The Isle of Man is a small Island between the U.K. and Ireland where street races are held for almost a hundred years.

It all started with a call from my brother Rob as he looked for a buddy to go to the Isle of Man TT. Sure no problem I said and here we go. Buying a bike and all the gear.

And as I was doing so I thought well if I fly over there might as well make good use of the bike and go for a little ride around the pond.

In the end it was 15,000 kilometers and a two part trip. First to the Isle of Man with my brother starting in Germany through Holland, England, Isle of Man, France, Belgium and back to Germany.

The second part took me alone from Germany to Switzerland, Lichtenstein, Austria, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia Herzegovina, Montenegro back to Italy Sicily, Sardinia and France, Corsica back into the Alps of France, Switzerland, Lichtenstein, Austria and Germany passing through Czech Republic and Poland before going back to Germany. Awesome trip.


I hope to do another trip on the Bandit to Skandinavia and Baltic Countries in 2017
