    Time for second TW?

    So the time has finally come and my trusty TW is two timing me! I either need to purchase a second TW or invest heavily in spare brake levers and shifters and clutch kits etc......

    What do you guys think?

    I think that is a good problem to have!

    Best solution would be to get another TW.

    Conner is growing like a weed...15 years old and he can already flat foot a TW.

    Another TW and riding gear looks like you will be working more overtime.

    The first day has gone well. Only two drops. One on the right side and the other on the left. Keeps the bike in perfect balance

    He is going to continue keeping it between first and second gear until he masters upshifting and downshifting and finding neutral. I also have him working on panic stops in the grass. He has not managed one yet without stalling the bike. All in all a productive day.

    Oh yeah, he cant quite flat foot it yet. He is actually parked on a slight incline. He can touch both feet reliably though.
