    Moving everything from the WTF to here

    Planning to upgrade to a 1000cc bike, Yamaha R-1 due to the longer frame length and I'm a tall bastard (6'6"). Any advice?

    That TL 1000s that was posted in the OG thread is a bad machine

    Wasn't the TL 1000 Kraps machine??

    Why is it bad? All my research is from 3 years ago when I was originally going to upgrade to a 1000, little behind on current stuff.

    No, no.... Bad ass. Those 2 cylinder race bikes were a good machine. Yeah, a member posted a picture of it. Dont see many since they haven't been produced for some time. A bit more rare than an rc51. I would love to get my hands on one. And you were asking about the R1, a great bike also from what I hear.

    R1's are a good bike, but seem to be a dime a dozen.

    The TL1000s is fairly rare and just so much fun. I have a shit eating grin on my face every time i ride it. I've ridden a lot of bikes and none of them have that same sound as the v-twin sport bike. I would love to have an RC-51 as well. There is something about the that sound.

    Here is me with my bike at the track. I wish they had picked a better corner to take pics.

    The sound of a TL1000 makes me jizz every time.

    I had the pleasure of riding this, its a TL1000 converted to pikes peak side car race bike. The exhaust went through a magnaflow car muffler. Best sounding bike I think I've ever heard.

    The dime a dozen thing on the R-1's doesn't bother me, I'll be doing a lot of aesthetics to it. It'l definitely be one of a kind when I'm finished. Much like my Tacoma.

    Something tells me I need to hear one of these TL1000's.. I'll check out youtube.

    And Steven your link/pic just shows up as a red x. Not sure if it's my work comp or bad link.

    Steve ...... that thing looks like a fucking blast. im in shock. i have always liked the idea of ripping around on a European bike with a side car.... now combine that with a sport bike with a ton of torque on tap.... insane. i am jealous

    I lovethe R's too, but the at the time i got it, the S was much better for insurance. :D The S weighs in around 490 lbs wet and I think the R was as heavy if not heavier. That thing is one hell of a work out at the track.

    So its more powerful just heavier so the extra power means sweet f*ck all?
    Budget permitting, I will own all the toys, but street toys come first as thats where I spend the majority of my time. :D
