    Hi all, Rode home yesterday afternoon in a nice afternoon downpoor, kinda nice ride but it when bad about 20km from home when the front plug got wet!

    Supposedly recently dynoed 130rwhp and well taken care of so it was healthy. All I can say is :boring Had to wring its neck to make it go while having all the character of a and I think my TL is quicker steering and better braking. Ive had an itch for a GSXR750 K6-K8 for a while... that was...

    It's been a horrible winter up here. I usually try to ride at least once a month over the winter and that's been a lot easier since getting the DRZ (I'm a lot less likely to ride the TL in less-than-favourable conditions) but today was my first ride since November. I took out the DRZ as it was...

    Well the local Ducati shop had the Ducati Hypermotard truck there with LOTS of demos so Bikepilot and I went to take one for a spin. I must say, much different than either of us were expecting. The motor has tons of torque and is super smoth. The bike itself it comfy, nice ergos and decent seat...

  8. I ride the GSXR > 6 times I rode the TL

    Open Forum
    Just a bored Saturday afternoon post. I just took the GSXR for a short ride around town (something I didn't do on the TL) and looked at the mileage when I got home only did 35km or so. It got me thinking, I don't ride a lot of miles but did some comparing. I ride the GSXR a lot more than I...
  9. Rode a Buell 1125R yesterday.

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    I was riding past the Harley dealership yesterday and noticed that they were having demo ride days so I said what the hell and pulled in. The bike does look better in person and seems bigger (longer) than the Lightning/Firebolt,which I rode a couple of years ago, and seemed tiny. The seating...
