    A lot of new riders

    To all the old T-dub salts...
    Does it seem like there are a lot of new riders and forum members this year? I am a new member and will be a new rider in a few weeks.
    If so, does it seem to happen each year (like new years resolutions)?

    I made a resolution to buy a motorcycle. I bought a TW instead.
    I just noticed my join date of October 2015. I did not get my bike until the day after Thanksgiving 2015. It made me remember that another reason I bought a TW is none of the other forums for any other bike would let me sign up. My first ride was in 11 degrees. I was so ecstatic to have that bike. I rode it about 20 miles with no gloves. It just goes to show how stupid helmet laws are. I do not wear a helmet and I fall off and hit my head all the time and nothing ever happens to me. I wear a Harley Davidson bandana instead of a helmet. It is endorsed by Hells Angels and every major organ donor organization. I may die or be brain dead, but I look...well...bad ass.

    Resolutions only last a couple weeks. A TW is forever. Like diamonds. (or herpes)

    Having a TW is a disease, very contagious, and often incurable. The cure is to get one and ride it like you stole it!

    Never had herpes nor do I want to experience them.......diamonds are fun but I do agree with NVcowboy that a TW is FOREVER!!! I hope mine never collects too much dust other than what she picks up on the trail.

    Yes, it does seem to me that more than the average amount of new owners have shown up since January. IT'S AN EPIDEMIC!!!!

    You never know with Mel, maybe he did steal it!

    Big Welcome to all the new TW forum members. Thanks to you folks we can refresh our memories of correct valve adjustment values and re-enter old controversies of what motor oil to put on the front tire...or sumptin' like that, I forget.
