    Hi All,

    I've been lurking around here for a bit and decided to register and introduce myself. I live in Central Ohio on 17 acres with my wife, 5 dogs, 3 cats, friends and family in and out all the time, with lots of Ranch like activities. We do some drag racing, shooting, wood cutting, yada yada yada.... I work as a Controls guy for Victoria Secrets in the Distribution wing, and spent 25 years as a Maintenance Electrician for the Old Anheuser Busch before the Devil bought them out.

    So any way, I'm in the market for a TW. I've had SL 100's, and 200's, we currently run 2 golf carts, a Yamaha and an EZGO Workhorse. The TW looks to be the perfect "Ranch Hand".

    I'm thinking it will end up with a total redo, probably going with a camo look. I want one with a kicker, it will get some type of a rack, and that's about it.

    More later gang, I just wanted to say hi and let you know I'm "Lurking".

    Welcome to the forum! Lots of good people here who love their TW's and are willing to help new owners. I am sure you have read lots of good info on the website, thus leading you "even more" into a TW purchase. They are the greatest little bikes, it reminds you of when you were a kid and perfect for the ranch.

    Guaranteed mile's of smile's!

    I grew up in your area (Delaware, OH). With 17 acres, you will have a lot of fun with a TW!

    Thanks All.

    I'm looking at a '91 thats a hour + from here, the seller is at around $1700. It's got under 2k on the clock and looks to be in good shape. Being a 91 I'd expect it to need a few items here and there, and the tires might be getting cracked. I need (want) a bike with a kicker, don't care about disc brakes, and inten to tear it apart over some winter and camo it out. Any thoughts?
