TL1000s riders in PDX? - New to the forum
Hey! I've been living in Portland for a little over a year- transplanted from Baltimore.

Any Tl1000s riders in the area?

I Ride: SV1000S in the faster copper color, and a hell of a lot slower than I used to.

Apparently the TL1000 riders didn't actually ride them because those bikes are instant death. Or maybe the club members are zombies?

I have yet to meet my demise behind the bars. Maybe twelve years ago the TL was a "widow-maker." Lately, I've even overheard it called a sport-touer.

Pretty much is a sport tour these days. Mine sure doesn't get ridden much any more, though at over 80k miles, it's served it's purpose.

Just got back from a 2700 mile trip to Laguna (by VERY circuitous routes) on my SV1000S. I've got a GSXR front end on the beast - the lost coast loop beat the crap out of me, I thought I was gonna die! In truth, we go on a long trip every year on our SV's - they're fine as sport touring machines.

Do any of you have any experience setting up suspension settings? I'm not new to riding, but I am not always the most mechanically inclined and have never set a suspension myself, outside of adjusting preload.
The stock suspension on the TLS doesn't make it easier.

I've read all the resources, but any other help would be awesome.

I do work at a certain well-known doughnut shop in Portland and can compensate with endless decorated-dough.
