Hi all,

Ive just treated myself to a Suzuki TL1000S as a second bike so i dont have to use the MV when the roads are salty.

I have to say that after having ducatis before, the TL engine is awesome!
Bags of character, loads of torque and sounds like thunder:naughty:

Just having some new tyres fitted today, Pilot Powers which by the way i also had fitted to the 312 last week and they are very good....

First time ive had 2 bikes at once, strange feeling:)

Cheers,

Al

be careful with that thing, make sure you get a good steering damper. ENJOY!!

Thanks,

the guy i bought it from has done a lot of good mods...

Rotary rear damper gone with an R1 shock in its place,

Tre

Thermostat mod to run on hot mapping

Full service, calipers rebuilt etc.

And the all important steering damper fitted:)

The tyres were rubbish but it still handled very well, very stable on the rear.

Test rode one with the rotary damper and it was a little twitchy at times so the shock mod is a good one.

I reckon the new tyres will be the icing on the cake:)
