    NEW MEMBER HERE - Northern, IN

    I did not see a "new member introduction" thread, so here's mine. I've been lurking around for a spell, but now that I FINALLY have a T-Dub (is it ok to call them that?) I figured I would say "hey".
    I'm in Northern Indiana and can't wait to get my TW back together and ride-able.

    Excellent. T'dubs are an appropriate addiction.

    Welcome aboard, ScottRod...I like that "screen name"!

    "I FINALLY have a T-Dub (is it ok to call them that?)"

    Oh ,hell yes!
    It's your bike, call it anything you want.
    I've called mine everything from "Sweet Child O' Mine" to "Rotten Little Bastard" !

    How do you like that Scout?

    Thanks all.
    There's really not much to do. It has about 7k miles and runs super good. Mostly cosmetic stuff since I'm kinda picky. So far I've ordered bars, grips, levers/perches, chain, sprocket and skid plate.
    Here's a picture of the before. Rear tire has a slow leak so I may just pull that off, put a tube in and paint the rear wheel and swingarm before putting it back on.IMG_20190504_184353554.jpg

    Welcome from Texas. I just got one in February, and it's a blast. I call mine a Tdubs often. I think that's a thing in general, so you're good there

    Have fun out there and be safe.
