    New guy, hopefully soon a new TW200 owner

    Hello, my name is Benjamin and I've been lurking around this forum for a while. I have pretty much decided to pull the trigger on a TW200 soon. I have a little dirt bike experience and I bought a klr650 a couple years ago. Last year I ended up with alot of issues at work and put the KLR in storage. This year has not been any better but I have a bad itch to ride. When it came time to pull out the KLR I found myself not being to excited to ride it. I really like that bike but it was not fun for stop and go traffic in Houston, or as convenient as I thought. I really envisioned it for long rides anyway, it being so tall was an issue as well, I lowered it some but it just isn't fun in heavy traffic. Its great on the open road, which i will keep it for that.

    That brings me to the TW200, i really wanted something to shoot around town in that was light and easy to maneuver. These little dual sports look like alot of fun, I am good with the limited highway use that comes along with them. I've got two state parks that I can get to on the back roads, i really wanted something i can take camping. i looked at other dual sports and small cruisers, but for the price and fun factor the TW200 seems to be the winner.

    I am trying to find the time to look at a few local ones, but work once again is keeping me tied up. But hopefully they won't all get snatched up before I get a chance to check them out. There is alot of great info on this forum and it already has been extremely helpful.

    TW's = Miles of Smiles... It just happens; you simply can not stop it.

    I have been watching youtube videos of folks on their TWs, nothing but smiles. I think this bike is definitely what i need. I know i will be going with cycleracks and a SeatConcept seat(used one on the KLR) first thing. i will ride it a bit before i commit to a storage system.
