    Just thought I'd make an official introduction here:



    I live am from Newfoundland (AKA The Rock), Canada . I bought a 1997 TW with 12,000 kms on it, for the daughter back in early July. But it seems that I am putting more Km's on it than her.



    I must say, it is a fun little bike for beating about on the trails. Plus I love being able to actually stand "over" a bike for a change. My other rides consist of a 1996 KLR650 and a 2007 KLX250.



    Lots of good info here. Only work I did to it so far was to install taper bearing kit for the stem bearing. I was about to replace with original, but luckily,after finding info on this site I went with the All-ballz kit.Thanks to whoever it concerned.



    Anyways, a few pics:









    Cheers,

    Relic.

    I also frequent RTR as NSS.How is the brew coming along? I hope to get over to NFLD next summer.Sure would like to try one of the Iceberg brews.In fact my brother-in -law just got a TW a couple weeks ago and we were thinking of doing the Trans Lab on them for shits and giggles.

    Definitely a fun little bike. Always getting asked questions on it by passers-by. Lot of people around my way haven't ever seen one like it.



    Iceberg Amber homebrew is absolutely delicious..... I can put a couple away for ya, but I dunno if I can guarantee there existance once I run out!



    Trans-lab trip on these bikes would be awesome I think. Make ya slow down and enjoy it instead of rushing thru just to say you did it.

    Nah.... she's nice enough to let me ride whenever I want. Especially when she's not around.



    I'm enjoying it way more. To be expected I guess. Don't see me parting with it.....unless it's for a newer model. Front disc brakes would be nice.
