I used to love how the TL's looked, was gonna get one but everywhere i searched for info i read what you just typed. Wouldnt have been a good second bike for me. Happy i got speedy!thegoat said:I owned a `98 TL1000.
That was a NASTY bastard, and tried to spit me off regularly.
The Suzuki FI was still in it`s fledgling stages and the engine became instant on/instant off power.That`s why you can see logos of the TL as a bronco busting bull .It finally got me at Pocono on a track day.
Crash's crash is what prompted me to get sliders for Speedy. Smooth and steady on cold tires/cold road.It seems to be the consensus that this is what caused my last crash. Cold tires + too much throttle + cold road surface + newish tires. It all happened in an instant and I was rolling down the road.
