Information: Quite possibly out of all the bikes Ive owned from my Fire blade through to my Gixer thou this TLR has been my favorite of the bunch.
The bike has always been slated by any review your find but with a combination of the sound (twin arrow cans) and the handling (Ohlins rear shock) it was the best all rounder i could of wished for.
I pushed this bike to the point i was wearing out my pegs and going through knee sliders within days. Completely destroyed my right boot in the process not to mention the fun i had trying out different types of stuffed "toy" animals as knee sliders :)
The bike could just be bullied around the corners and it loved it. If it had the power of the Gixer thou it would of been untouchable.
In the end the crank went and killed the bike, a big shame as everyone has "a bike" they connect with and it just works for them, this was mine.
