Tell me more about the Bandit. I used to ride a slabside GSXR1100, and from what I understand, the Bandit 12 used a newer version of the same engine (which was a serious stump-puller). Are they all still oil-cooled, or did they ever go to water-cooling? I know the big oil-cooled engine on my GSXR used to put out massive heat, but it was fully-faired. How is the heat (especially here in Texas) on a Bandit? What are the handling characteristics like? Fuel mileage? And how low of insurance are we talking about?

I emailed my short list to my insurance agent, should I have him look at the Bandit while he's at it?
