    Just saying hello. Finally just purchased a new 2013 this morning and going to go play tonight, can't wait. Have been reading all you guys great comments on this bike (have wanted one for years) and finally got tired of taking the big dual sport off road and want something a little less muscle and more fun....can't wait.



    Looked forever for a used one but with the discount I got through a friend who know the owner of the local bike shop I ended up not paying much more than most the used ones I see (these things seem to really keep their value). Hoping the 2014's don't come out with bigger engine and EFI , but if they do, told the wife we will just have to own 2



    Can't wait to get it dirt! Look forward to learning and share with everyone on here...already ordered the rear rack which will be in next week.

    Welcome! I went from KLR650 to TW. Way more fun, I liked it so much I now have two! These bikes are much more capable in the rough stuff than they are given credit for. Push it and you'll be amazed at what it can go over. I really like going places my 4 wheel drive ATV buddies can't fit through.

    I also have a KLR and just bought a 2013 TW200 but I'm still keeping the KLR for the longer trips.

    Congratulations and welcome to the forum Desertwolf!



    Be sure to get yourself a real skidplate before you start seriously banging around any big rocks.



    Have fun and enjoy your new toy.

    TW's rock man, street or trail, and they are such a money saver if you're commuting. If you take care of it it'll take care of you. Be safe!

    I don't think they are gonna produce any more TW's in Japan anymore. I don't see any on their site beyond 2007. That was their 20th anniversary edition and it was a TW 225



    here is their website in Japan. NO TW225
