    New TW200

    I've been looking at used TW's and the prices are high for used bikes. For a little more I can buy brand new. I see 2017's and 2018's both new with about a $4-500 difference, is there enough difference to make the 2018 more desirable. I plan to keep the bike for a long time as it will go in a trailer behind my RV for hunting and fishing access on the back roads west of the Mississippi. I'm retired so it will be used a lot as I go for months at a time.

    Welcome from Vancouver Island!

    Mechanically, there is no difference between the 2017 and the 2018. Only the colour scheme is different between them.

    Welcome to the forum. It is my humble opinion that the 2018 colors will carry higher value in the used market. Pretty sure you’ll smile like the rest of us whichever one you ride. Cheers

    Riding a TW is like riding a piece of freedom Hidden Content
    I don't want to go where the road takes me. I want to go where it does not.

    goldenhtr, yes AWS/American Water Spaniel, yes WA . Originally from WI, the home of the AWS, my Callie dog was one of the great one and is immortalized in print and on traveling trophy's.

    Thanks everyone for the welcome and the impute. I.ve been a bike rider for a long time, I put a kick start wash machine motor in a 20" bicycle in the 1950's and terrorized the fields and forest of SW WI for a few years, then it was road bikes for a long time. I've been traveling out of a van set up for off hwy lifted and posi. It has a bunk and solar power for heat and lights. I've run a mountain bike beyond where the van would travel. We are getting older now and it is hard to travel with two vehicles. My wife and I are going travel together in one motorhome with my duck boat and a TW in a trailer and I will use the TW to roam the country from a base camp.

    What I like about the TW as it is street legal everywhere and I can travel to where the pavement ends and then get out in the bush for some serious work, coyote hunting and fishing, even some predator control on some ranches that know me.

    There will be questions along the way as far as setting up a GPS(I use one with public lands chips), racks, extra fuel, etc.

    Thanks again
