  • TL gone forever?

    Well i just finished coming off the site and I could not find the TL. Maybe I am just a slow poke but i remember about 2 months ago the site still listed the 2004 TL 1000 R. Now, it is gone. Too bad no companies want to put the R/D into V-Twins. Is there any word of comeback? Or is the TL just going to fade away, off into the crimson sunset?

    Nope - Relegated to the history of motorcycling
    Retired the TLR for a Gixxer 1K. Sorry boys I sold you out

          Ya, but the SVR is not the TL. The letters T and L together sound way more bad ass than S and V. Plus, would you trade your TL for an SV, my opionion, I DONT THINK SO!

            Hell No ! I just got mine a few weeks ago and I'm looking forward to the long list of mods I'm gonna do to my new baby.

            After I'm finished with the bolt-ons I'm gonna rip her open (gently of course) to do the head and pistons.

            This is too sweet a machine to give up. Besides, not many people out there own one. All the more reason I brandish 'er with a smile
            If you can still hear the sirens behind you, yer not going fast enough

            TL Mods:
            ZG Double Bubble, CF levers, Clear lens, 41t rear anodized & hardened, BMC filter, TRE

            My other rides:
            '98 Chevy 4.3 S10 stepside
            '04 Honda Civic Ex

                Other than better fuel injection system, they really aren't any more advanced than the TL line
