    Hello from Mexico

    Hi,

    I am a newbie to the TW200 and motorcycles in general. 44 Years old (no not a midlife crisis) and living in San Miguel de Allende Mexico.

    I just picked up this 1999 TW here. Once I learn to ride it and crash it I will look for some mods.

    From what I have read this is a great forum.

    Welcome to the forum bs. For some odd reason, crashing is more natural for us and we have to fight through it when learning to ride. After learning how to ride then we know WHY we crash but can't help it.
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    “Once I learn how to crash it...”

    I like you on first sight.

    Please consider making an instructional video on how to do that.

    God made mud. God got lonesome. So God said to some of the mud, "Sit up!" "See all I've made," said God, "The hills, the sea, the sky, the stars." And I was some of the mud that got to sit up and look around. Lucky me, lucky mud. I, mud, sat up and saw what a nice job God had done.

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

    Welcome and nice looking bike. Why wait until after the crash to mod? Some Tusk D-Flex handguards can save you their money's worth in damage after a crash or two :-)

    I just read your bio and it hit me like a brick, man.

    20 years laying low in Europe, then abruptly changed your name and are now hiding out south of the border. Probably in a liittle town well off the beaten track. Most likely still living like a prince off that stolen bank or art heist.

    Enough said, right?

    Your secret’s safe with us, bro.
