    Pulled the trigger

    Well guys I’ve done did it!! Made the purchase today on a 2019 tw200😬 missed my chance on a ‘17 with 56 miles on it for 4000. Got the 2019 for 6000 OTD here in Cali. I know it’s a bit much but wasn’t willing to drive 100+ miles to save a couple hundred. Gas in the truck costs more than that out here! Anyways got a helmet and the first service on the dealership. Can’t wait to hit the trails and hard to reach rivers for them trout. Need to ride it for a bit before I give it a name (I see that’s the norm around here and all). Well hope to meet some other maybe close (Santa Ynez) riders to go chwommping around with! Feels gooooood to finally get the ol tdub!!!!
