The K bike was made for LONG rides. It is what it does. I would not hesitate for a minute to tour on it as long as I knew what was going on with the bike mechanically. ie. spline lube, brakes, fork seals, etc. I don't know much about the Suzuki bandit but a lot of the Suzuki's are dependable as well. What is your budget for a bike? My moto is to buy the newest bike you can afford. If that means a BMW, I want one with warranty which means you have to buy it between the 3yr./36K mile warranty from new or buy one with an extended warranty. I was thinking about the price ($3K asking price) after looking on some other websites and I would definitely say $3K is too much for that bike.
