    Might be joining the TW family

    A big hello from Sask, Canada. I've been riding motorcycles for a good part of my life having owned a xt250, xt350, xl500 in my teen years in the 80's. Fast forward 25 years with a number of bikes in between and I am ready to step back into the simpler, extremely fond years of my dual purpose riding years. Was at the local dealer trying on CRF's, KLX's and DRZ400's when I ran into a family friend who said he has a 2013 tw200 with 100 miles that he would sell for around $3000-$3500. Here in Canada the TW200 is 5k plus set up/freight plus tax bringing it right around 6K. I remember the TW's throughout the years and after my disappointment with the high seat heights on the DRZ, KLX, CRF, I think I am going to give him a call and pick up the bike. I absolutely love exploring the valleys we live in, fossil hunting and fishing and believe this bike would be a complete blast to ride. Now with 3 boys aged 7-14, I have a strong feeling this bike will lead to another 2 or 3, of various sizes, to get the whole family involved. Just wanted to drop in and introduce myself and thank you all for having such a great forum available to read and learn about such a sweet little bike.

    My only regret about buying the TW is that I did not do it sooner!! go for it!! you will not be disappointed (unless you want triple digits for average speed).

    Cheers from Mexico!

    Just called him and finalized the deal. Look forward to getting the machine out for some relaxing rides if the snow ever melts and we finally get some spring weather.
