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 from Texas. You will enjoy the bike and the forum here is like the cherry on the top. There are lots of great people here to guide you along if you need information.
Welcome sprocket42, from a similar climate at the moment!
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.
We need photos from the non-US bikes. They come in colors not available here. And Welcome!

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.
