    Thread Starter: merv

    Okay I'll start the new year's thread this time to save jellywrestler doing it. So Alex Marquez is now confirmed as Marc's team mate at Repsol Honda.

    Thread Starter: OddDuck

    The long life of my '99 TL1000S

    Thread Starter: Mad-V2

    Just thought I'd share whats happened to my TL over the last 12 years of ownership. This is the earliest picture I have, taken in 2002. Pretty standard except Brake lines, Two Bros cans, rear hump and polished headers and Rear Ohlins shock. Here's me at Taupo Motorsport Park in 2008
