The former owner of my TDM & a friend, spent a lot more time than I riding with other friends that have Beemer 1100 & or 1150 GS's. On some long trips. He is a big guy too. Anyway, more than one of the GS guys told me, "That thing hauls ass!" 'Cause it went right by them.
Yamaha should still sell them here. I think they would have a better market for them now, as opposed to '92-'93. Hell, Buell/HD saw the light & sells the Ulysses. Maybe the only bike that could replace the TDM for me. Not a Beemer.
