  • I'm starting to hate my TL...

    Everywhere i go people gather around like flies around shit. I go on a breakfast run and people call me away from my bacon & eggs to talk to them about my bike. I go to a trackday and people invade my pit area, asking "how fast does it go..." - now ain't that the worst question you can ask a racer?

    This morning a guy said to me "fuck, the only stock TL thing you have in there is the motor..." I was gonna tell him that ain't stock either but my bacon & eggs were getting cold...

            you know one of the advantages of having a TL is you can just slap you breakfast in the cowl area to warm it up.

            The closer to the engine the better.

              Don't all TL owners buy the bike for attention?

                Pierre, I can help you there.
                Just send her over...
                Oz has my adress...




                I so recognize what you types! When my TLR was all black, not a signle sticker. Everyone thought it was sooo cool, looks fast, etc.
                The "how fast is it" was only the second question.
                First was almost always - what bike is that. TLR, and they were non the wiser...

                But, in the end, I think it is kind of fun that more people is interested in my TLR than the Gixxer 1k standing next to her.
                TL1000R -99. Yellow/Black.
                M4 Full system(Alu), K&N Filter, TRE mod, removed Pair valve.

Pazzo racing levers, shorties, Íhlins rear, Brembo front brakes, ET79 undertail, blah blah blah...

                      A good way to get rid of them is to say "You should check out what I did to the undertail, take a REALLY close look", then wack the throttle open That ought to knock them into next week

                            Man I hate when people ask you what it is and you say it is a TLR and then they are like "oh does that means its a fast bike or just looks cool?" and have this blank look on there face
                            Stupid people!
