    When gas was nearly $5/gallon in 2008, I got a wild hair and out of nowhere decided to buy a TDub. I read and research numerous reviews and opinions.



    So I went to the local Yamaha shop and to buy a Black 2008 TW 200. It was listed at $3299, Black on Black. The salesman disappeared for about 30 min and came back and said I wasn't approved for this $3299 motorcycle but that I WAS approved for the $7000 WR 250 that could "Go on the freeway!"



    So I walked out and drove 20 miles to another Yamaha dealer and walked out 45 min later with my white 2008 TW 2000 for $3299, a $450 Arai helmet, a $400 credit for a bent clutch lever (with the replacement lever) and I was hooked.



    I don't know how I found the forum but I wam embarassed and proud to say that I read every post on the old site and have read every post in the Performance and Customization columns. Not so many in the others. Plenty, but not all.'



    Which brings me to the reason for this fun rant. There are days when I look 3, 4, 5 or more times with anticipation of new updates or photos of fellow members, pics or comments. There are days sometimes 2 or 3 without any new posts and I feel like an addict needing my fix.



    Will anyone else admit out loud that they share the same sentiments or addiction that I do? I already know of a few, so make sure you speak up or I will call you out on the national TDUB broadcast website.

    I ain't sayin nothin.



    One thing I will say is...I blame this website for making me spend lots of money!



    I had a perfectly good little bike that would have lasted me a long time...



    Then I ran across this website...and saw what others were doing...



    and you know the "rest of the story"...



    It never ends.

    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    i agree Brock...and sometimes more than 5 times a day ...so many cool ideas/people on this board that i don't want to miss anything



    how i came to picking up a TW?...got bored with my street bike and saw catamount's TW build on a local motorcycle forum...i decided that the bike looked like it would be a fun on/off road bike so i poked around and i found this forum...i lurked on here a while reading everything i could...i bought a used TW in April of 2011, lurked some more, did a few mods and then i finally joined in September of 2011...been addicted ever since...over that summer i found myself riding the TW around more than i rode my street bike mainly because it was more fun and comfortable to ride...so i sold my street bike in October of 2011 on Cragislist (which also got me addicted to selling things on Craigslist) and found/bought the husky a week later which had a similar ergos and gave me more get up and go than the TW but less than the sportbike...to be continued...

    Does it count as multiple visits if you just keep a tab open all day and hit refresh every 15 minutes?

    I am the same way. In fact I wish I could access my photobucket account to post some new pictures. I will have to wait till I get home tonight.



    I was hooked the day I rolled one out of our container box to teach a BRC class. It just took me 4 years to buy one.
