    New owner in South Texas

    Hey everyone, I’ve been looking at TW200’s for about 3 years and finally decided to pull the trigger on a 2019 last weekend. I looked at getting something used but there wasn’t much available.

    It’s been many years (20 or so) since I’ve been on bike, and that was when I was a teenager haha. So far the TW has been great and just getting a feel for it around the neighborhood. I’m planning to do some weekend road and light trail riding. Looking forward to more time on it and getting my license in the next few weeks. All of your comments and stories of great times on the TW helped my decision to make the purchase!

    Congratulations. I had that exact feeling this past October when I purchased my new 2018. I too had been looking for 3-4 years.

    Nothing like the smell of a new scoot.
    That is a sweet looking TDub.

    Thanks to everyone for the warm welcomes! I live in San Antonio, south but still plenty of state before you get to the Rio Grande
