Question about 2004 Suzuki GSF 600 S Bandit
I was wondering, how good is this bike for long tours, such as driving down through Europe. (Approximately 8000 km)
I've ridden my '99 Bandit 600 from Manchester to Munich 5 times now on different routes via the Alps, Switzerland, Spain and Italy. More than capable of the journey and great in the Alps. Motorways as the previous comment says can be tiring though - try not to overdo your stints. The tank holds 150 miles brim full - but that includes all the reserve and in hot weather you can lose 15 miles from that (found that out in Northern Spain - brilliant recovery system there!) Would not recommend taking a pillion though.

I have taken my Bandit on 300 mile rides and had no problems with comfort,

The bandit 600 would be great for the twists and turns on european roads, but I suspect it might be to uncomfortable for long distances. It's not a touring motorcycle, and it's suspension is a bit stiff to run on long distances.
