    new from El Dorado County

    Hey, my name is Nick and I'm from El Dorado County CA, and I'm looking to get my first TW. Lots of good info on this site in the short time I've been looking.

    Thanks for having me here.

    Welcome gentlemen. We are all here to help. Opinions vary but are all quite valid. Any thing to get you to your purchase of a TW and your journey toward the dark side will be complete. Then the real fun begins.

    Welcome Nick. Get that TW and let's go for a ride. Several fellow members ride in your neck of the woods, lots of potential for adventures.

    Hi, I'm an Eldorado county guy as well. Plenty of riding here! Found this bike locally on Craigslist. An 87, good shape with good price - a little elbow grease - it'll look new...... Generally this is a good time to buy. Welcome. See below.

    Hi Nick, and welcome to the forum!

    You are in a prime location for a TW and there are many nearby NorCal nutjobs on this forum to ride with and help you out if you need anything. Just beware of some guy named Fred who will likely try to entice to go on an "easy ride" with him - just make sure that your life insurance is up to date!

    Thanks. I saw that one listed a while back, I was over at my mother in laws in Petaluma last weekend and would have problem picked that up if it was listed then.
    I messaged a member here about one they were going to list that's a little newer. I'm waiting for them to get home and send me some pics this weekend, hopefully it all works out

    That's an awesome video. A bunch of those areas look pretty familiar. I backpack in pretty deep sometimes to bowhunt.

    That's one of the main reasons I'm gonn a pick up a tw. Normally I'll ride my quad a few miles in, then hike a little deeper to hunt. I was in Idaho for the first time this year and couldn't take a quad a bunch of places, but guys on bikes were going right past me.
