Just thought i'd gloat a bit. Just picked up my new 2002 TL1000R this morning and rode it to work.
"---insert the happy dance here----"
WOW! what a bike. I traded in my 2000 R6 and all I can say is this thing is a world of difference. Its far more comfortable (i'm 6'1" 210lbs) and the bike just feels awesome. I love the effortless power.
I'm finding the clutch alittle tricky, but shouldn't take too long to get used to that.
Anyways...just thought I'd pass on the happiness!
