I opened her up just once to see what I would be dealing with, and saw the face of God!
I have been on liter sport bikes, big torque cruisers...but nothing compares to the thrust these damn things hit you with. If you are going to grab the throttle, just make sure you have a whole lot of empty road ahead of you...feels like God placed his boot on the tail end of the bike and shoved you forward - really, really hard!
Can you make a vid of the Bike running and you blipping the throttle?.....Please? I haven't been on a big vtwin in over 2 years

No Coast Rider (11-16-2012)
Wow congrats man!! A guy in my neighborhood has one. I used to make sure to go home everyday down his street so I could see the bike. Haha .....yea..... I did that quite a bit......
Just a quick question, I've been wondering about this for a long time.
What is the difference between the tlr1000 and the gsxr 1000?
Speed? Acceleration? Comfort? Handling?
Is the throttle twitchy like on the 4 cylinder bikes?
How experienced of a rider should you be before you own one?
Sorry for all the questions. Just really curious
from what one of my riding buds said (since he used to own one) it was twitchy in town. did NOT like low speed low RPM. He LOVED the bike. other than, not as much top end as a inline 4 1000, but GOBS of torque!!!!!!!!!! i'm guessing you know the TLR is a V-twin... right? much thinner than any inline 4 1k. i wouldn't suggest it as a first bike for anyone. ride some other smaller bikes first and get some riding experience. THEN, maybe look at the TLR.
from my perspective, i still love the RC51 better sound-wise. but like the looks of both of em.
and... GRATS on the new purchase and awesome wife. that's another woman that's a keeper. seems like the thing for woman to do these days. i think your the 4th one I've heard do that.
