    New guy new Bike

    Hello everybody. I've been lurking on here for awhile doing some research on the TW. I wanted one for quite some time and I finally pulled the trigger. My current bike was just to big for the kind of exploring I like to do. I found a good deal on a 2016 new left over in Queens NY. Can't says enough about the staff there, very nice people. Just for reference purposes..4060.00 out the door. I'll pay tax on it when I register it in Jersey. I can't wait to do some simple mods and get out for a good ride. This forum seems very friendly compared to some others I visit. Can't post pics yet. Have not met the post quota..

    Update: figured out the picture thing.

    Stuffed in the van to get it home. Sure beats dragging a trailer around New York City..

    Welcome!

    There's a ton of info here. I've benefited way more than I've contributed. You'll find virtually anything you can think of through the search (finicky sometimes).

    Use this search rather than the forum search: site:https://tw200forum.com/ fork tuning etc.

    Don't forget the space!
