What about the SV1000 ?
What are those like? They are the successor but are not generally more expensive for some reason (looking at bikesales site anyway)

They aren’t a bad bike, but they are a lot tamer than their TL big brothers.

Personaly, I’d love a TLS, I’d think about a cheap TLR, I wouldn’t bother with an SV.
H2-SX-SE, GSX1400, Hayabusa, B-King, Bandit 1200, GSX1100ET, GSXR1100G and a few others.

SV 1000 is a physically small bike, not much bigger than the 650.
Keep the rubber side down.          Mick

I had first edition TLS great bike fantastic allrounder a lot like GSX1400. Rear shock shit itself cost $$$$$. Loved the sound and the bottom end grunt. Phillip Island and back with tank bag to lean on.  :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

I saw this at the classic races in Spa, completely restored TL1000S, just as good as it rolled out of the factory. Only thing I noticed is that the wheels should be dull gold? Maybe someone correct me on this.

Maybe I should try a Super Sport again, this time with a big comfy tank bag to lean on :grin:
