    New TW owner

    I recently picked up a 2016 TW200 with 1300 miles on it. I justified it by saying it was for the wife. Lol. Anyway, did a few upgrades. Replaced the skid plate with a ricochet, thanks placerlod. Added new footpegs, d-flex hand guards, pro taper bars, happy trail pannier racks. I replaced my Giant loop bags on my KTM 1190 so they found a new home on the TW. Having a blast riding it here in the Florida Keys, but looking forward to a two month long trip to the west coast in April.

    Welcome to the forum. Florida Keys to the west coast sounds like a great adventure.

    Very nice bike!
    Going to ride the TW all the way to the West Coast? About 3200 miles over 30 days is only about 130 minutes a day in the saddle, your butt won't get that sore. Well, maybe a Seat Concepts Kit from Placerlode might help a bit.

    If I was a younger man, maybe. We will be throwing the bikes in the toyhauler and driving out. Working in Portland for a month.

    Hey, Welcome to you.
    Good friend on mine was down your way in the Keys at his time-share last week. He said it was the coldest weather he ever experienced in 20 years.
    Of course it wasn't as cold as up here in NY, 3 to 8 degrees which sucked.

    Ride Safe & Happy
