    Hi everybody

    Hey there, I'm 56 and live in rural northwestern Pennsylvania. I started out in life riding dirt bikes then dual purpose then street then dual purpose and now dirt so I've come full circle.Well I should specify that I still have a dual purpose but I call it dirt since I took off the mirrors and turn signals and it hasn't been licensed for years. I'm refering to my 1998 TW200 that I bought in 2003. It had 4800 miles on it and I paid $1200. It now has probably 25,000 on it. The speedomotor stopped working at 20,000. It's been my all-time favorite bike out of the dozen or so I've owned in over 40 years. I look forward to making new friends here. I signed up last year but never really posted. I should add that in addition to motorcycles I enjoy family stuff, especially playing with my grandchildren, writing, anything in the woods, and am an amateur astronomer. My screen name is my favorite constellation.

    Geez Cygnus, ~20,000 off-road miles is pretty impressive. Bet you could share some good ride destinations with other near-by TWers.
