You're a lucky man.Thanks for all the input from the members of this forum...
I got back from a week of riding in the North Carolina mountains on the Vstrom, and while the Vstrom will always be my first love, I jumped on the TW and took off around the yard...what a blast...so light so nibble. WHAT was I thinking...my mind is made up...I will get another TW to putt around with the wife. Keeping the same bike in the stable will certainly simplify life, and I feel like I am already a TW expert, after all the research I have been doing on this forum. I know I was concerned about being impatient with the TW when by my self. well I will just have to chill and accept it.
My wife is doing spectacular on the TW, We just got back form some lonely paved country back roads. I had to chugg along in 2nd...but no worries, watching her just thrilled and enjoying herself as she reached speeds of 45mph. was great.
I will be making a 3hour trip tomorrow to hopefully pick up a black and silver TW with 3k miles..paying $200 more than I would like to, but its a small investment to make for the return in enjoyment.....riding with my wife
