2000 Suzuki TL1000R
The TL1000R truly still is the only one of its kind

Blown fuse - fuel pump.

I have owned a lot bikes over my 15 years of riding, to include the GS550E, GSX-R 1100, ZX7R, and Daytona T595 to name a few, and the TL1000R is by far my favorite. The best comment I can leave is one quoted from a forum I once came across where an OP questioned the difference between an inline-4 and a V-Twin. The answer given was flawless - "An inline-4 sounds like a bumble bee farting in a tin can, where the V-Twin sounds like the devil and his horsemen coming for you on a thundery night." The proof is in the pudding. After racing through the canyons one day, I actually had a fellow rider confess that I scared him when I went past. How many folks can say they've been told that about their inline-4s?
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
