My 08 Bandit. I'd keep it if I could afford two bikes and use it on trips. Most of my riding is commuting and it's just kind of bland. Good all-around bike tho.

TIRES. If it's only got 4k miles it's been setting and not riden. At 4000 miles the OEM tires on my 1250 were squared off back and front. As said above, tire pressure is most likely the issue.
