I'm looking to come over from the Dark Side, I currenlty have a Ducati.
Can blame Posh Johnny for this.
Want to spend up to £2500, what sort of thing can I expect and what should I look out for other than the usual?
Also which in your expert opinions is better TLS or TLR? If they are both available in my price range
Thanks all for your help

It's true that the fat-ass TLR tank has less frame issues, but I guess that's a trade off.

Of course, my vote is for the much sexier S. :)

Why don't you look at both, maybe you can test ride some? Take what's best for you. I don't regret my choice a bit. I don't like hiding such a beautiful piece of machinery behind plastics... The R is like an ugly girl wearing way too much makeup trying to hide it. :dowhat

Whatever your choice, welcome to the Zone!! :bigfinger

Hi Matt, glad you found your way here ok
CLICKY HERE FOR PICS
check out Rupes TL of the year 2005 I think
Follow the above link to see how nice both can be with a little TLC.
Notice all the yanks say R and most of the brits say S.
Both are good choices IMO.
So are we shopping for one soon :O

By the way welcome :bigfinger

The only comment I would add is to try and find one with the important bits (damper, forks, PCII, full system, 6 pots, etc.) already sorted, and if you can get a '97 S :devious :laugh :laugh

I have an S but would prefer an R. However the S is the one that started the whole widow maker story and that comes with status!! :laugh

In an ideal world I would have both sat next to each other but having had the S it would be rude not to try the R. Bit like twin sisters you would have to try em both just to see the difference!! :laugh :devious
