  • She's FAST!!

    Hey Gang. Against my better judgement and ability I raced a CBR1000 over the weekend. Not from a dig, but from about a 15 or 20 mph roll (4or5 times). I lost, but I can tell you this: The stock TL1000r with nothing more than Yoshi's runs like a bat out of hell. This guy won, but was scared to death when that pig opened up. I cant say for sure because I get scared around 150mph, but I think I was catching him. All I am saying is the TL is one hell of a bike and I am proud to own one. From a DIG, it is going to come down to skill and experience. Those 4 bangers are fast and I am not the one to set the stage, but at the end of the day I am V-twin baby!!

        I assume he is talking about launching from a dead stop since he said they were doing 15-20 mph roll-ons.

          This is a dig

          And remember, the sound of a TL makes up for it being old and slow(er).

          How much do you weigh? Just curious.

              learn to launch off the line and you can give him a run for his money in the 1/4 mile
