    Finally Joined the Club

    Long time lurker but finally joined the club after picking up this lightly used (1100 miles) 2017:

    Only mods are the huge racks (those are coming off), a 47 tooth rear and a tach. Deathwing in the front will go soon with many farkles to come after I get to know the bike a bit better.

    I took a 4 year break from riding but always wanted a TW. Finding this site and watching TDubskid videos swayed me.

    My mid-70s father in law rode with me to pick the bike up. He's been riding since he was 14 and gave up his Goldwing about the same time I took a break. The size was becoming intimidating and he wanted to focus on traveling and camping more. I give him a month before he has a TW as I couldn't get him off the thing when we got home. Wife (his only daughter) was not pleased with all the ride lines through our front yard when he was done...

    Thank you to all who make this site possible and all the contributors. It has been and will continue to be a wealth of information and I hope I'm able to contribute myself at some point.

    I have those racks on mine. They are invaluable! The back one has held my lunch box since 2011 and the front one has an army ammo box mounted on it (with a lock) for my cellphone when I get to work, in a prison.

    Thank you for the welcome. I'm going to hold onto the racks in anticipation of my father in law joining the club soon. They will serve his campground needs perfectly (I had to hear all about it on the ride home...)

    I totally appreciate their functionality. Just not what I need for my use but look forward to recycling per the above. What racks are they?

    Welcome to the Forum. Racks look to be homemade.
    Beauty is as beauty does.
    If it works good, it's beautiful.

    Those are nice. Just can't find it in me to spend $200 on rear alone...

    ***EDITED as I confirmed they were built by the original owner I purchased from.
