    The Yellow TL1000R - A myth?

    With well over 100 TLSs and 's in attendance over the 2 day anniversary bash in Donington one thing was rather conspicuous in its absence... What happened to the Yellow TL1000R? All other colours were there in abundance including some incredibly trick paint jobs, race reps, complete carbon bikes and yellow TLSs but not a yellow TLR in sight...

    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?

    Of course, Ted, shipping is an additional cost - to be expected for such a rare specimen.
