I could tell you how I'm new and all and give you some story that you have already heard four times over. Cut to the chase, my TLR is new and already it's too slow. What's first for the go-fast goodies? Fender eliiminator kit or hacksaw? Any pics?

Marchesini magnesium wheels, carbon fiber bodywork, Akrapovic exhaust, WP forks, Ohlins shock, Brembo brakes, Wave rotors, SS lines...that should keep you busy for a while.

Uh, hacking off your fender or replacing it with a fender eliminator will not make you go faster...

I vote for a power commander and highrise pipes personally!

No pics yet. Anyone have any suggestions on the best exhaust to get? Anyone have any pics of their TL with polished wheels?
