    this was going to be a naked bandit as I hate the look of the faired ones but as I've got to do best part of 2 thousand miles in 3 days I've got myself a damaged fairing ill plastic weld up and fill . I'd already got screen and mount so that's good.

    I agree about the half fairing on these kinda bikes - I was contemplating a CB1300 a year or two before I left England and whilst I love the naked edition, the half fairing version makes me want to do a little sick every time I see one. Can completely understand the practicality it provides if you need to do a considerable journey though.

    How much can you source a 1200 lump for one of these for? I've heard some very good things about the 1200 Bandits over the years...
