    Hey everyone, I'm making my official introduction of my '04 TW200 that I bought from a coworker a week ago. I've never had a motorcycle (raced bicycles and rode scooters though) but I'm having a blast on this thing! I just took a local motorcycle safety class so hopefully I won't kill myself just yet. Last night I took it up from the 5000 feet where I live up to about 8000 feet to a tourist town in the mountains to practice my cornering ability.



    I'll try not to ask too many dumb questions on this forum and use the search function lol.



    Here's a few pics with my not-so-fancy point and shoot.

    Thanks! I'm really enjoying it. I just did the valve adjustment on it last night which has never been done on it yet and the bike has 8000 miles. They were only 1-2 thousands off, so I'm not sure if it's just running better because I think it should, or because it really is better.

    Congrats on the new TW. Take a look at the build date ( 2004 ??) and you might discover that you've got a 2005. The 2004's have white plastic and the 2005's have black.
