    In the market

    Well.....I have gone full circle now.
    After owning the XT for over 2 years now, I am in the market for another TW.

    Might not be long before I am among you once again!

    Ready to join the "Full Circle Club" eh? If you get another TW, I can't guarantee 100% satisfaction but there's a chance right?




    Now, if you're a little more on the technical aspect of the circle, here ya go!

    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    Vernon is a 4 hr drive from where I am....I'd have to do some real "sweet-talking".

    If the next one is as good as the last one, the satisfaction is guaranteed.
    The problem I'm having with the XT, is that it cannot accommodate both of us...my old TW could.
    And since I don't insure the DR for year-round fun...the second bike is for recreation. We put a LOT of miles two-up on the old TW.

    It's a "weight" issue....When we BOTH get on the XT...it sinks down to the tire, and that is with a heavier spring and the dampening cranked up to #1 (or #5, whichever is for the heaviest load)!
    We both fit on the TW without issues...with a STOCK spring....and we (I) haven't gained that much weight in two years....

    Also, I don't find there's as much room on the seat as with the TW, and there's the issue with the stock rear hub of the XT.

    Don't get me wrong, the XT is a great little bike...but it's not for BOTH of us, the way the TW was. After I sold the TW, I tried a Honda CRF...too small with both of us. Sherpa....too small.

    The TW just seems to be built better for two.

    There are two for sale in Maple Ridge. $3800 and $4200.
    Both look like they are sporting death wings on the front.

    Grewen, the bike is stll posted on Vancouver Craigslist today.

    I responded twice to this Craigslist listing last month and was twice told it was sold. Yet it remained listed. I asked why it was still listed and the response was that sales fall through sometimes.

    I find this to be poor business practice as a CR ad can go up in minutes.
