    New TW Rider?? Maybe

    I think I'm gonna need a new TW!

    Get your old TW running again.

    It seems there are enough people swapping in 57mm stroke crankshafts that there should be plenty of 55mm crankshafts going for a song.

    Burgdorf still closed, but late yesterday afternoon found out our support for the fires is slowing down. With this we were able to shut down our midnight shift.

    We decided to salvage the weekend with a short camp trip, so we loaded up the machines and will head out this morning. Oddly enough we may have to worry about mud as it started raining last night. Fire to floods eh?

    While I was loading things up last night, Lori wanted to see if she could ride the TW. She hopped on and after just a couple engine stalls, she was rolling. She rode it the short distance in 1st gear over to her parents. When she left, she rode up our driveway and even shifted up to 2nd or 3rd. She really likes to relax on the ATV as you don't have to pay as close attention to the rocks and ruts, but I think she would really like to ride the TW in some circumstances. Me too! I was notified the color pink may be added to one of the TW!

    Tony, I'll have to get working on an engine for the Mayflower in earnest now! I may not be the only TW rider in the fleet!

    Weebles, littletommy and Rhodetrip, I had a pretty big grin on my face seeing her riding it around. Baby steps
