    There are conflicting rumors about the '02 TLR. I've heard from one reliable source that there will be a ~400lb TLR with better suspension and more power. I've also heard that they're just going to say 'fuck it' and stop messing with it.

    I really hope they come out with a TLR to kick all other twins in the balls tho...

    That would be sweet. I would really like to see a twin in the 750 displacement, though. Something that puts out 100+ horses and kicks 600s inline 4s and Duc 750's arse.

    There seems to be a huge gap between EX/SV and RC51/Aprilia in terms of price/performance/insurance etc. Granted there is not a racing category for it, unless they allow it into 600s class.

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding your last post, Eug. But the 748 is allowed to race in the 600 classes, usually....

    I too have heard the full boar of rumors regarding the Tiller. Personally, I don't feel there's much wrong with it now. It's only a coupla pounds heavier than the RC51 dry, puts down more horsepower, lays down more torque, and has better 1/4 mile AND top gear roll-on times....

    I just don't understand why the Tiller got so dissed in the rags. Good thing I didn't pay attention to 'em. I'd put the Tiller up against someone of my same skills on the RC any day!!

    I was referring to 750 running with 600s in AMA Supersport the same way 996 twin is running with 750 4s in WSB and AMA superbike.

    I'll be there, and on my wimpy old TLS with 30k miles too. Though I haven't dissed the RC, it's because I'll be leaving that for after I WHOOP you on the track.

    Et tu, Josh? Et tu? Bring it on, baby! Your Yoshified, Ohlinized, discontinutized TLS don't scare me none. I'll even dye my hair like Nick Hayden just to make it even.

    Tough talk from a guy that can't even post right! Besides, we can't race at trackday.

    And btw, no Yosh's anymore...I went back to the stock cans and gave the Yosh's to Jay.

    Race? I thought you just wanted to fight! Racing is detrimental to good order and discipline, not to mention dangerous and stupid. I would never condone or engage in such activity... Dave gone? Good! BRING IT ON, BABY!!!

    Hey, I'm not dissin' the RC you fuck!! I'm just standin' up for the Tiller. I think it's a riot that all the M/C rags tore the thing apart. But it's amazing that whenever someone comes out with a new V-twin sportbike, they always use a TL for a basis of comparison. Can we even count how many bikes out there are powered by the TL engine??
