    New tw owner and member

    Just wanted to say hi.
    Just sold my 76 xt500 (Uncle Thunder) and bought a new TW.
    I've wanted one for years. I love it but will miss the big single torque just couldn't kick that that thing anymore.

    Welcome to the forum from Ontario, Canada! Yes I'm sure you will miss the raw power of Uncle Thunder but you will cherish the e-start, the shedding of so many pounds and the ability to go just about anywhere you want as long as your not trying to break any speed records! Congrats on your new T-Dub!

    Welcome to the forum. Hope you enjoy your new TW. I had an SR500 and if starting your XT500 was anything close to the SR, I fully understand what you mean. My SR had a compression release and some kind of alignment window so I didn't get launched into outer space or lose my leg.

    P.S. and the TW vibrates far less than the SR did and I assume your SR.

    Again, welcome.

    I don't think YOU are going to get much use out of it.

    Looks like someone else has taken over control of it.
    Welcome to you both. And the bike too!

    Ya he's one of my little guys, I adopted two boys 9 and 10 now, I've had then since 2009. Every time I buy something for myself they decide I bought it for them.
