    HELLO! TW's Rule...

    I've been lurking for awhile, but have found SO MUCH useful information on this site I had to become a member. I have a 2013 TW that I picked up with 251 miles on it for $2,500. I'm in the depths of throwing on some basic mods (Pro Taper Handle bars, Seat Concepts seat, rear rack, DG v2 exhaust) and diving into the whole rejetting/ needle shimming adventure and tuning the values etc. I finally made it past the 600 mile break in mark (I've had it about a month and put 800+ (gravel forest service roads) miles on it. In short I love the TW. In long I really, really, really, really, really, really,really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, LOVE the TW. It is perfect for where I live (the highest mountain in WV.) The place I work for rents out guest yurts (I'll give you the VIP treatment) and we border a million acres of National Forest with hundreds of miles of that gravel goodness so if you want to plan a ride here in the mountains send me a message!

    Just me, but i'd keep the stock pipe. Not much gained there.
    Instead, upgrade front tire if its stock, to a shinko 241. Probably ditch stock skid plate too.
    Larger footpegs are another good upgrade.
    I upgraded my stock headlight bulb to a 30 watt led. That made enough room for me to mount 2 10watt led pods. Headlight was brighter and i got even more light from the pods.
    Windscreen is nice too.

    Your a very fortunate person!
    Getting a 2013 TW with only 251 miles for $2,500, wow,wow,wow,wow.
    Home sounds like TW heaven.
    You'll never see a motorcycle parked in front of a psychiatrist office!

    Me and a bunch of guys were just down there and plan on going back soon, as soon as possible in fact. We were just in MD this weekend right by PawPaw. It would be great to ride with you and a yurt sounds much better than a tent! Welcome to the board! My name is Scott. Keep a look out for TopPreditor and The rest of us East Coast TDubbers.. the wheelie king etc.

    Can you post a link to where you work? Would love to check it out.

    I don't think I'm allowed to post a link yet since I'm a new member, but the name of the place I work for is Experience Learning and if you google it you can find us. We mainly do outdoor education for schools and run summer camps etc., but we rent out our facilities for every kind of event imaginable. I've been talking with some local dual sporters and we have been toying with the idea of doing a big dual sport rendezvous here.
