It looks like we are the only ones who own one! How did you get yours? Is it the black and yellow one? I got mine from Canada.

I rented a TDR on the Greek island of Keffalonia in 1996.

When I returned to San Francisco, I had to have one, and miraculously one showed up in the Chronicle a couple months later. I bought it for $2500 bone stock from a mechanic at Monroe Motors who had emigrated to the States from Van BC and was allowed to bring it in and title it in CA. I've owned mine for almost 16 years, blown it up many times and done many mods.

Still my go to bike for around town.

What's your story, JB?

Great looking bike! I have to get a pair of the JL pipes! I hope to this winter! I lived in Canada for a few years and my bike came available through the local paper. I knew of them, but never saw one. When I went to see it, I fell in love quickly. $2,800 later, I took it home. The person I bought it from actually rode it in an enduro, some of the cosmetics need some attention. Like yours, it is my general purpose go to bike. Fun to ride and always ready for a wheelie! I especially love when it gets over 6000 rpms and settles into the turbine smooth sweet spot. I have about 23,000 miles on it and have had it for about 10 years. Last fall I got a Super Tenere, while I enjoyed it, I always found myself going back to the TDR. I sold the Super T last week to rebuild/restore the TDR. I own quite a few bikes, but the TDR is my fav. No, it is not for sale!

Cheers!
Jon

Hey JB-DTW welcome to the assylum! How much of a hasle was it to bring the bike across the river and get it plated. I have often thought about buying in Canada but never bothered to get serious. Just lazy I guess, but this is a good example of the kool stuff the Fed wont let us have.

I've wanted a TDR since I was a teenager. Every morning on the way to work I would end up "racing" one on dual carriage ways. I was on a 750 Kwaka. I would over haul him on the straight & he would fly past on the round abouts while I was dragging my centre stand. Never beat him.

Somebody said to me recently that 2t's have personality & moods compared to always the same 4t's. I have to agree.
