  • TL-R Article.......(Just found it.)

    http://www.roadracers.co.uk/tl1000r.htm


    I like this part-

    "Over those years I won championships and learnt so much about setting up bikes that I ended up building and preparing bikes for various Honda Riders such as Steve Hislop, Carl Fogarty, Joey Dunlop, Phillip McCallen, Nick Jefferies at the TT and mainland British Championship races with wins being the result. My latest bike, the Suzuki TL1000R, is without doubt the best bike I have ever ridden, including my race bikes. It's never got a good press since it's launch but I think that's unfair as with some simple mods it can be made into the best bike currently on the market, and that includes the ubiquitous Yamaha R1."



    Simple mods to the bike make it a wicked ride. Aint it the truth brothas!!

    I think that's Jamie.
    He used to have (maybe still does) a TLR website.
    He was one of the first guys to get a lot of good info on the net about setting it up well etc.
    I know he wrecked his 98 a while back. Haven't heard much from him since.
    He used to post on the blue board every now and again.

      Jamies site is long gone I think. But his suspension settings live on.

              It would be great to see something from Jamie again. He should be member #1 of the TLR Hall of Fame.
