    Can't be on this site. He still has the stock front tire.

    Close to me Trailways AW. Well about 50 minutes or so to that Menards without traffic. I've had my other riding buddies tell me they've seen an elusive TW around the Tri-State area inclucing my wife but they are like Big Foot sightings here. I have yet to see any personally when I'm driving or riding at any time in the years I've owned my TW.

    I do know there are several guys that frequent Beechmont Motorsports that a sales guy told me have TW's over on the East side of Cincy. From what I gather they don't ride around town much but take them down to the Smoky Mountains and ride while their wives shop for a week. Guess they need some good MPG bikes. LOL. I hope to get everyone in touch. From what I understand or estimate there are 6-8 around the area but they like to hang with Big Foot and chewy on beef jerky I guess.

    I don't know about Mendards, but I was at a local Tractor Supply to pick up a new belt and three new blades for my riding mower last week on the T-Dub. It's a great errand bike. I would have taken the mower to the Tractor Supply, but even though it has 10 more HP than the T-Dub, the hydraulic motors only get you up to 3.1 mph. The T-Dub is more fun to ride anyhow. The T-Dub also sees regular trips to Home Depot, Ace Hardware, various neighbor's houses, and overland loops out behind the pole barn.

    Mine has been to Menards, but in Illinois.
    I have two.
    Both have a milk crate, but one has a 7 gallon bucket in the crate,

    In Illinois I use the one with the bucket, so when I run errands I can just put whatever in the bucket, and don't have to tie it down.
    The Menards is 20 miles away.
    i have hauled groceries, parts from hardware store, branches from a property in town to a burn pile, check book yesterday to pay bills, garbage to a dumpster, picked up yrash along our road, weed eater to other farms, 3 gallon sprayer, extension chords to irrigation, tools and parts, 5 gallons of chemical from a fertilizer plant.

    i just drop them in the bucket. The weed eater is only thing I have strapped down.

    Before the TW I had a GZ250 by Suzuki (I still have it) that I have a cat liter bucket with a lid on it. I used to ride it to Menards and get Poly-E-Force cloth to cover my 40x60 shed. It came in a 100 yard role 4" wide. The cloth was perfect size to fit the ribs on the shed. I would hate to guess how many trips I made to Menards as I could only haul 10 rolls.

    Took it yesterday to local hardware to get some plumbing stuff. I thought about going to Menards, but it had rained off and on, I would have saved enough to pay for the gas but didn't really care for a 45mph cold shower. I had one of them a couple of days ago.
