    Haters gonna hate, Maters gonna Mate. I think the TL1000S have quite a long lived motor and yes of course a 20 year old motorcycle needs some care. But as others have already said, maintain your motorcycle and it will look after you. Operator errors in either riding or maintencance are 9 /10ths of what goes wrong in motorcycles.

    I got lucky and bought mine with 34000km on the clock just after it had a thorough checkover and whatever was wrong was sorted out. So far I have had little dramas two years on, most of them to do with my own lack of knowledge around maintenance and attempting to modify it. Every motorcycle make has it's lame ducks and lemons and within that group there are some definite dogs but the TL isn't one of them. The TLS is in good company in the Supersports bikes of it's time and the way it puts the power down makes it a rare beast in a modern world of well behaved (koff boring koff koff) but fast up top bikes.
    Likewise, the TLR was running alongside the Ducati 996, not exactly slack either.
