    Introduction from a new guy

    I should have introduced myself before asking for help but better late than never. I have an 88 TW with about 4700 miles. It looks like Bruce Willis' bike except mine has been ridden :^) I mostly use it to chase starlings through my blueberry rows - my wife rides the ATV and I harrass them on the TW. 62 years old - had a Honda 175 a lifetime ago but nothing since. I fantasize that we will someday sell the farm and get a camper and strap the TW to a bumper to go fetch milk, beer etc. I've wanted a TW for about 10 years - finally bought one last year when the starlings were overwhelming and the drooping canes were making it hard to get the ATV through the rows. Can thread the TW into much more narrow spaces.

    Welcome Berryrider. I have the same 88 as yours but the PO painted my pretty red frame flat black. I also have a real nice 91 that will soon turn the first thousand mile mark. Love the older TWs and just hit 62 on 4/3.

    Be Decisive! Right or Wrong just make a decision. ​ The road of life is paved with flat squirrels that couldn't make a decision.

    Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
