    What to look for in a used Tw200

    There's one for a good price about two hours from me that looks to have been well cared for. Anything in particular to look for beyond the normal signs of abuse, crashes, etc.?
    Keep in mind I have almost zero experience on anything but a Ruckus, so likely won't be able to test drive it as I forgotten how to shift gears ...

    Look for any obvious damage/abuse. After that, if you're not comfortable riding, ask the seller to ride it so you can hear the shifts, general engine noise, etc... If it sounds like a "normal" bike shifting and running I'd say you're good to go.

    Thanks rbm. I know it's kinda pathetic to be a 61-year-old guy who can only ride a twist-and-go ... Gotta learn somehow.

    Not pathetic at all, you've made up your mind, now it's time to learn. With your attitude, you'll pick it up quickly and enjoy the hell out of it!

    Not at all Bill. Find one you like, go slow, have fun and enjoy the scenery. They are wonderful and forgiving little bikes. Life is very good, look for the fun and enjoy the minutes. From where I stand looking 61 ain't exactly old at all.

    I'm looking forward to it Hoot. Like my Pa always said, the alternative sucks.

    It is younger than I am !!!!

    As for what to look for, make sure the motorcycle is complete -- they are fairly easy to work on and fix but buying parts can add up the cost fast.
    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    you can tell everyone that you are 16 and need a dirt bike (16 and 61 have the same digits) . I'm the same age, us teenagers have fun with our dirt bikes, we 'll get trikes when we get old.
