Hello everyone,
Just aquired a Tl1000R & a TL1000S and i gotta say why didn`t i do it earlier..
Thge TLR was purely a business affair, but i`ve been riding it now for over a week....I enjoyed it so much i went and bought an S.....
This is a 97 model in Green, which aint to my Taste but i got it for £950 so i cant grumble...needs a couple of items,A complete Rotary Damper & arms & a rear saddle, but seeing as i`m too much of a noob here i cant post in Wanted section... ;-P
I`m from Scotland so if anyone can help me out it would be very much appreciated....
Are there any members from the UK as i see this is a US/Canada dominated site, very similar to TL Planet :)

As soon as i`ve sussed how to sort pics i`ll add a couple of them....

Cheers....Matt

Well heres your first TLZone greeting....:bigfinger

So you waited all this time to get a TL and then bought 2... good on you..

Theres loads of UK members on here but as you say the majority are our cousins across the pond.

Enjoy the site mate.

...needs a couple of items, A complete Rotary Damper ...
Hail from an ex-pat Scot.

Don't waste your time replacing the stock rotary damper - a new one doesn't perform any better! :laugh
There are a few available after-market options - Bitubo is popular as it replaces the SOAS and damper in one component.
Others that will replace the damper with a more conventional shock still retaining the SOAS
I have Ohlins which falls into latter category

There are a whole bunch of Brits on here - as mentioned earlier, also check out the UK Regional forum
(Have no idea why it says UK incl Scotland - Isn't Scotland a founding member of the United Kingdom of Great Britain? :O )

D`Ecosse, i`ve just put in an offer for a Hagon Damper, so hopefully i`ll be sorted soon...
I`m not Rossi & i`m over 9 Stone so the Rotary units work ok with me on board ;-P
Was out and about in Edinburgh City centre rippin it up with the " R " this afternoon...
You just gotta love that sound aint ya...
Especially with loud cans.... Superb :)

Cheers for the welcome everyone....

Done a little bit of shopping for the TLs,

Hagon Damper assembly, a Clear lense Tail light, Chain & Sprockets & some fresh pads all round....

Gonna dump the oil and fit a new filter just for peace of mind....

In the mean time i`ll be playing silly buggers on the TLR....

Rolling thunder...oh yes ;-P
