So I was ready for more adventure so I purchased a 2008 klr 650. Just wanted to say thanks to this forum to and I will be selling the TW200. It was a fantastic 3 years. Want to say thanks to everyone who has given to this forum and made knowledge here so easy. Its nice that fixing a problem is just a nice google search away.
Its hard to sell the TW, it brought me so much joy! It has its limits but I learned so much from it. So here is to new adventures!
Once again thanks to all that helped!
Owning a TW is not a prerequisite to participating in TW forum discussions Stick around, share stories of your KLR with us, etc.
KJ, just KJ, ok.

I've also got an 08 KLR. Doo-Hickey and all kinds of other stuff done. If you have any questions..ask.
I did that two, but with the DR650 and a succession of other bikes. It wasn't long till I bought another TW though. After all, a man can never have to many bikes. You'll still have a lot of fun on the TW if you can afford to keep it.

If you used your TW on gnarly single track trails the KLR is not a substitute
I have TW200, F650, and 1K Vstrom
The 650 is a great all rounder and dirt ROAD machine.
So unless you need the money ASAP then hang on a bit to see if you would
want to poke a round still
Im in love with the new black KLR
2005 TW200 (SOLD)
I too needed 450 more cc's to add to my adventures. The difference is my needs were for more ponies on the pavement. I won't be selling the beloved TW since the new machine can't take me to all the places I want to go so now I have the best of both worlds.
Here is my new ride I just had dropped at my door today. Put 65 miles on her today and I am in love. What a great machine the fz6r is and the fz6r forum is full of great info and nice people ready and willing to answer any questions, much like this forum.
My new bike
I think the tw and 6r are going to get along just fine.
I'm on my fourth KLR since '85. Best bang for the buck there is.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.
I just added 226cc. Those must be magic ones though, because it feels like 3x the bike. I'll still be giving the tw some love.
