    According to Suzuki the Yellow TLRs were made in 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002 & 2003 making it the second most common coloured TLR. There are even two different yellow colour codes listed.



    Red is the rarest followed by Black...

    Do you know what "nemesis" means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent. Personified in this case by an 'orrible cunt... me. thumbs

    Were they a myth perpetrated by the Suzuki Marketing department? Were they actually there but appear to be moving so fast whilst stationary that they don't appear on camera? Did they all break down en-route and the bye-ways of Britain are festooned with yellow Suzukis? Have they all been repainted or are they just becoming extinct?

    Should Oxfam be doing an advert on this issue?
    Just bought here in CO. I'll probably not change the color. Also, glad to be part of your forum!

    The yellow ones were there. Being the fastest TLs, you probably just didn't see them...
    "The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."
