I seriously doubt he hit 40 mph. People need to get over themselves. I would put not signing a report higher on my list of things that I would rather see a cop get written up for over rabbit starts...

To the best of my knowledge, Suzuki isn't fixing TL1000S's problems in the states. If they are, good deal for TL owners.

History says under the motor for a gas tank.

How is it any different than a YZ450F, Ducati 1198, 636, etc.?

I wanted one of those in the worst way in 1994. I bought a CBR-F2 because was like 2/3 the price.

A friend of mine raced one for a brief period in Superbike.

I still love street riding, I just ride a lot slower than I used to.

Thanks for the clarification on the SS1000. Sounds like a cool accomplishment.

First, beautiful VFR800.

Second, do you mean an open-class sportbike? I know I think faster than I type, so I was just curious. If so, you must!!! 1000cc sportbikes are incredible. Just don't...

If it was reasonably priced and the 33hp is easy to get back, I'd be all over this thing like flies to poop. But, for now, I have a cool naked bike that's about 33hp (or so) under an S1000RR.

I'd hate to say it, but only if it was both oil injection and had direct injection FI.

My little SR50 sips fuel, uses very little injector oil and is really reliable. I'd love it in a 500 or...

Go to Summit Point. You'll meet lots of people who ride Ducati's who aren't rich and ride the shit out of them. Granted, you'll meet some REALLY wealthy ones too, but it's not the norm.
