    New from Oregon

    Hi all. I've been reading for awhile. I bought my '87 in August after a few years of thinking "maybe," and then a few months of "yep" (and some discretionary $). It came with the Jimbo mini, riser bars, aftermarket mirrors, Cycleracks rear, and the license plate mounted to a nifty little plastic box with a lock & key. I had to look to figure out what the extra key on the key-ring was for. Now what will I put in that?

    I had the Shinko tires put on, f & r. I just swapped on the Clarke 2.7 gallon tank yesterday.

    It's been decades since I've owned a motorcycle. I don't have big ambitions. Just want to ride out to Forest Service gravel roads and the like here in Lane County, and fart around in the forest.

    I wanted to say "hi," and: THANKS. So much good information here! I can't express my appreciation fully.

    Here's a photo


    I should say I didn't put on just the new Clarke tank. I also put on a new fuel cock, hose and clamps. Why not?

    I'm in Eugene. "Northwet." I like that.

    Welcome to the Forum.

    I no longer ride a TW, but I am in Creswell. If you want to plan a ride sometime. I ride up in the Bohemia Mining area alot and have been known to ride to Winchester Bay for a bowl of clam chowder or fish & chips.
