tlr's are known for being a wild ride. Not as stable as a rc and prone to frame stress cracks.

Woooow a lot of negative from some who don't own a TLR. Well I do so let me chime in. Don't get it if you want to run a 1/4. But get it if you like a lot of low end torque, great sound, and a bike that doesn't look like everyone else's. It is heavy in comparison to current inline fours but the weight is a little exxagerated on this thread. Think of it as the new Oprah, not old fat Oprah but you still don't want to see her in a swimsuit. But you can make it lighter with a few inexpensive mods. I love my TLR, but it is an aquired taste. If you're not used to torque it can be tricky. As far as parts are concerned you will be alright. It's a strong built V twin, and the TLR community is worldwide. Check out tlzone.net, and tlplanet.com

If you are wanting a twin, I would reccommend the RC51. Love that bike, but it is an acquired taste like the TLR, or the Kawasaki ZX7R. I have a ZX7R for sale if you want one.

How about an Aprilia RSV for 6500.00. Italian twins are the shiznit if you go the twin route. Check the for sale section.
