    This is what the TLS was notorious for....
    all of a sudden, without warning...YIKES!

    Thus the name...."Widow Maker" and a very bad reputation.

    It wasn't as bad as it was made out to be, the press just had a field day with it.

    They had a field day with it because a Journalist was KILLED on one testing it.

    Suzuki, then in turn, recalled the early production '97's and made sure that a steering damper was in place! The rest is history.

    I never heard that anyone was killed on it, but the Brits contended that it was superslapper city. I know about the damper (please see avatar), and even without it, my RC seems more twitchy.
