So, there was a chance I'd be moving to Sydney and the suburbs, but signs point to 'probably not'. As such, I'll be staying at Griffith Uni, which means doing lots of freeway km between the Gold Coast and Mt Gravatt campuses. Still in love with my Bandit, but it's a 1999, only a bikini fairing, and has done 125,000 km. It's got a lot more in it, but I'd be more comfortable on the freeway on a supertourer. There are quite a few ex-cop bikes on Bikesales for reasonable money: Yamaha FJR1300As, Honda ST1300s, BMW R1150RTs and R1200RTs and so on. Not at all attracted to the Harley cop bikes... and they're silly money anyway. Most of them have a lot of kays on them, though: unsurprising for retired cop bikes. But they're also meant to do lots of kays, are mostly shaft drive and will have been well maintained by police (or subcontractor) bike mechanics. Obviously the more money the less distance and vice versa. Just interested in comments, experiences, perspectives.
