    Tractor like torque, soothing engine presence and the sound baby, oh the sound!

    That and it is paid for

      Sound, grunt, not a common bike, people who don┤t know better think they are slow and don┤t handle (always the underdog, hehe), responds so well to simple easy mods, the superbike heritage, the riding position, versatility and more ....

      AND THE LOOKS !!

      yes, I love my tiller

          Untill two weeks ago, I was the only one in west Scania with one (thats south south west Sweden). Now we are two.

          Other things I like about the TLR.
          The torque.
          The SOUND of M4 ful system.
          When you got used to it, the look is very nice.
          With stock seatcowl the riding position is quite Touring-nice. Compared with my old carbonfibre seatcowl the stock is heaven. Im not switching back!!! (Not even after the repairs are done!)

          I like to meet new people, and the Tiller makes people come forward and ask what Bike I have.

          Seems to be farily easy to work with.

          And with Pierres (HammerIT) bodywork (I might order some.) you can make your Tiller even more rare and uniqe. Nice.
          TL1000R -99. Yellow/Black.
          M4 Full system(Alu), K&N Filter, TRE mod, removed Pair valve. Yoshimura clutch cover, removed Scissor gears, Carbon fibre hugger, carbon fibre rearhugger, HammerIt TLR/R fairings, Gilles Toolings rearset. Pazzo racing levers, shorties, Íhlins rear, Brembo front brakes, ET79 undertail, blah blah blah...

              One word, well maybe 4, ONE THOUSAND CC TWIN !!!! (is CC a word?) Plus, those who know, know! And those who don't, want to! I still look at her every time I get done riding and just say, That baby is fine and all mine! And as others have stated, THAT V-TWN PIPED OUT GROWL!!!

              Plus, being part of this board (good suck up huh?)

                  The thing I love my about my TLS is how you hardley ever see another one like it at all(some people have never seen one) and most of all, I get tons of compliments on the sound!

                      You get a fair few over here, but they tend to not get taken seriously... due to the press coverage, most people think the TLS can't be fast cos it's too twitchy, and the TLR can't be fast cos it's too heavy... I do what I can to change people's minds...

                        I couldnt tell ya exactly what it is, but it just draws me to it. Also the other owners of this bike(s) I have never seen a group of cyclists that go out of there way to help eachother out. I seen more generosity from TL owners than I have from any other group of same bike riders. Instead of trying to see who can ride faster or do the best stunt everyone here is just enjoying a great bike that has been shunned by most of the cycling community.

                          Your check is in the mail

                          I don't have a TL, but I'm drawn to it for all the good stuff everyone has already said, especially torque and sweet V-Twin music

                            The sound. oh yeah, AND the color

                              War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
