    Hi everyone I've just bought a new, in purple TW125 (hope that's OK on a TW200 forum) . I was riding a Triumph weighing in at 240kg and I only weigh 55 and also I'm 74 so it was getting a bit of a struggle. So the TW is an absolute delight for a stress free ride. It is absolutely standard at present but when it is run in I will probably buy a stainless exhaust system and possibly a selection of rear sprockets as it does seem to be very low geared (14/51) and I will only be riding on the road. Weather here is constantly cold, wet and windy so not getting out on it that much at present but when I do it's great fun.

    Welcome Sprocket42. You made the right choice, I converted from a pan European 1100. Too heavy now and required a parking space everywhere. Now I meander around the tracks of andalucia confident that the little TW can cope with anything I dare attempt.

    Darn it sproket42, you made me go to a kilograms to pounds (the weight, not the old British $$) conversion table. 121.254lbs.
    Good on you for simply adjusting the weight of you steed rather than giving up the saddle. Age does promote wisdom.
