    Knowledgeable TW Enthusiast in Dallas?

    I'm new to TW's and recently picked up a 2009 with 3500 miles. Seems to run ok, but then again I don't know what all I should be looking for that's 'normal' for this bike. There is a knocking noise on acceleration through about 25mph in 2nd or 3rd gear, but I can't tell if it's engine or suspension related on the limited 'round the block riding I've done. Anyone in the Dallas area that knows these bikes that might be interested in giving this one the once over and helping me get started on the right foot in it's care and maintenance? Beers involved...after riding is over.

    Alternatively, any recommendations on a good shop? I've dropped in a couple and their service departments were vacant - one in the pure sense of the word, the other just in the attitude of their personnel - but I'm sure there's good ones out there. [1]


    [1] Tried searching the forum, but didn't find anything - could be my lack of search skills

    Congrats on your new (to you) TW and welcome to the forum!

    I'm too far away from you to be of much help, but hopefully somebody closer will chime in soon.

    +1 I'd be glad to get together, but I'm a couple hundred miles East just across the Louisiana line. Hopefully someone a little closer will come along.
