    New to owning a TW

    I am new to the forum and new to the TW bike. I always had a bike, whether a street cruiser or a motocross bike but always thought the TW was a cool little machine. Just recently picked up a 2010 with 312 miles on it. The lady I got it from bought it new and took it out a few times a year for a short ride. I think I got a good deal at $2,800. Anyways, it's a really cool machine and I'm looking forward to putting some miles on it this fall. By the way, I'm in Eastern Pa.

    Nice Looks like new. Change the oil a bunch of times up to the first 3000 miles. And start thinking about all the add ons that you will see all over this forum. You got a rack so you can check that one off. Most of those in the know will tell you the front tire is a good place to start. I think the folding shift lever is next for me.

    Where in Eastern PA? Me, Bucknutz and Zolar are near Matamoras and Port Jervis.

    Nice looking score there and just about show room new. Now the fun begins so hang on to your wallet while we get you set up.

    Welcome to the forum.
