    Been reading for a while and finally snagged a used TW. Been riding for over 20 years but realized I rarely leave the city (San Francisco) or go much beyond 45MPH and yet I ride a 800cc 500 pound Sportster which just seems dumb especially since I'm 5'2" and only 100 lbs. Looked around and settled on the TW cause most of the bikes I've owned I end up customizing and the TW while not as sensible as say a XT225 has a stronger custom following. Another reason for the TW is that since my girlfriend crashed her Triumph T100 and shattered her shoulder she's gone down to a 200cc Twinstar (pic below) cause she's both a bit freaked out riding a big bike again and her muscles and bones are still on the mend since she got her titanium rods removed. Slowly accumulating the parts to hollow the TW so I'm sure I'll be hounding everyone with questions.

    Bought my 2013 just in time to ride memorial weekend!
    Rode almost 300 miles in the first three days the typhoon season came to Austin we need need the rain and mud is fun to! I've been riding for years and never had the time for dirt, don't care about speed and hp , hence the TW.
    Think I made a good choice ! My face hurt from smiling so much. Hope to take her to Big Bend soon, all TW's long for Big Bend!

    They are such fun little bikes, especially if you haven't rode a dirt bike in a long time or have been riding street bikes your whole life.

    Guaranteed: More smiles!
    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
