    After a couple of weeks of negotiating with the Mrs I was finally able to satisfy my thirteen year old son's need for a motorcycle. We picked up two new 2013 "DEMO" TW200s. The first week was a lot of fun. Both my son and I, my daughter and yes even the Mrs have spent some seat time on the bikes.

    They are everything I have read on this forum. Easy to maneuver, a little grunt and not a lot of speed. I think they are an excellent stepping stone and an all around fun bike to have in the garage.

    You will probably find that your "stepping stone" bikes become your cornerstone ones. Such I have found after almost stepping on.
    Just give me a minute while I collect my thoughts. They're around here somewhere. Maybe!

    That's exactly how it all started in my family a half century ago! Only I was the youngest son and the bikes were a Honda Trail 50 for me, Honda Trail 70 for my older brother and a Honda Trail 90 for M&D; after the little airplane tired lawn mower engined ride in my avitar gave us a taste of wind in our face freedom. That time in life built a lot of good memories for our family. I hope it does the same for yours.

    Welcome to the forum and have fun!!!
