    Hi all, My name is Patrick, live in Cape Town, South Africa and I am going in the next few days to sign and buy my new TW200. really keen to get it and having not ridden bikes for the last 15 years, more excited than a kid a xmas.

    Been doing my research and come across your forum. so you now have a new member from Cape Town.

    will let you know when I have it at home.

    Hey Pat,

    You should hold out for a 200. You'll be glad you did. Be patient. I guarantee one will come up for sale, and probably for about the same price. Give it at least a month or so, and keep watching for one. Do a daily Internet search for "TW200's for sale". That's how I got my like new '03 a couple of years ago, and for only $1,300. You've just got to be patient. Good luck.

    Welcome to the site.

    Hi kwizard. I am getting the 200. You mistaking me with JT. I do agree though. The 125 will be a bit flat. I have being doing so much research lately and have opted for the 2013 model. Although we still in 2012, that does confuse me a little.

    Is the first vehicle in my 42 years that I am buying out the box, so double excitement.

    Phat, congrats on the purchase. Buying a new vehicle is exciting, I've only done it a few times. Welcome to the forum from half-way around the globe!
