    My new bike.... only done 8500 miles

    Gotta say I love it. Needs some noisy cans though if anybody in UK has a pair to sell!!

    Very nice with ultra low miles.
    Blue and white ones are faster

    Cheers guys, took a while to find one that fitted the bill, although the budget was blown! Wish I bought 2 years ago when they weren’t becoming collectable. Having a mare with the clutch slave at the mo as it’s leaking. Just been seeing what’s what this eve. Have a good eve

    Very tidy indeed.

    On the cans front I can recommend FUEL carbons. Had these built to spec for a reasonableish price. Noisy enough without being too offensive. Had the length matched to the standard cans to keep the standard look'n'feel. Haven't had to do much to the fueling either.

    You are going to want to keep those stock items somewhere safe though. Good OE ones are getting hard to find.

    Like my TL I'm old, overweight and badly maintained but I can still surprise you by how fast I can move.

    Yoshi music boxes are a must, the louder the better its a TLR
    Blue and white ones are faster

    Nice bike Snowblind cheers, I will look into it. I would like to keep the length of the cans to similar to original as you have. Stubbs aren’t really my cup of tea. Have to agree with Mike Blue ... it’s a TL , it’s gotta be loud

    Hard to find decent Yoshis for the tiller these days. Wonder if by any chance Ted has a cache of them in his garage somewhere.....?
