You work for PECO?
If some of you noticed, I just bought my first TW200, A 2003 with 1996 miles and have been driving it about every day I can and am loving it,
While I have a couple other bikes, The TW is taking me out thru the power lines and over the hills and into the valleys and I can't do that on my 99 Buell M2 Cyclone,
SO heres what I did.
BUT I work in Philadelphia Mon thru Thursday and then go to PIttsburgh 300 miles away to the wife and small stone house on the stream for 3 days,
Its a bitch of a life right now and will continue like this for a couple years,
I grew up in Philadelphia and know a lot about the area and have also spent months in the Pine barrens in NJ and know them better than most anyone,
It was kind of an accident, But I found a local TW with a real nice price and 3000 miles on it,
Please forgive me,
I bought it and this week I will get it registered and legally on the road,
I figure I can use it for work when I visit the local properties to meet with the maintenance staff for 30 minutes,
I do get .57 a mile for travel for anything work related and the TW will surly help save some dollars,
A TW to use on each side of Pennsylvania.
This one is a 97, Carp sputters every once in a while, So I will rebuild it this week as well,
I guess I got carried away and love running the TW around all weekend and while I don't have unlimited funds, I do however know that I am getting older and I should enjoy my life and time even thought it when I am at work! ! ! ! ! !
I will get paid to drive the TW one day a week ! !

I posted in the wrong section,
I work in a 700,000 Sq Ft facility and behind the bike in the main switch gear which we bring in two sets of 13,200 Volt, 3 Phase feeds so if one shuts down, We can run the building on the other line,
I can drive into the Substation which is about 4000 Sw Ft and park in there when I ride a bike to work.
Good luck with the new bike.
The Buell is no slouch either.
700,000 Sq Ft facility? Will they let you ride around inside it? If that's the case install a rack and tag it as a work bike.
As a matter of fact,
The middle building has two empty floors On the 7th floor I have a nearly 1/8 mile loop I ride a mountain bike with road tires around some days for 10 minutes or so for some winter exercise!
We care for about 600 Water source heat pumps, A couple Steam boilers, Chillers and all the piping, water heaters and lighting for 2000 to 3000 office personnel,
Thankfully Im the chief engineer and don't have to always be out in the public eye, I like my office, My motorcycles which I keep indoors and my own personal 30 yard shooting range which is in an old service tunnel which was blocked off about 60 years ago.
Anyone in Phila. area can always stop in and take a tour,
Looks like the bike i.was eying from central jersey cycles in eatontown.Great luck with it,I see a nice husky 250 enduro there for 5200 and haven't decided if I want a dually or dirt,after having 2 bikes stolen from me I'm kind of fed up having anything worthwhile anymore,isn't this reason I go to work?. And on top of that im sol w carpal tunnel surgery so riding for next 3 months is out anyway.
