    After working on an old XS500 Yamaha all winter and deciding that it was high time I owned something reliable and fun to ride, I searched around a bit and found a dealer in Highland IL that had two 2010 TW's sitting on the showroom floor(new with no miles), collecting dust and being generally ignored in a far corner. After a small bit of haggling I picked one up for $3628 out the door (if anybody is interested her twin is still sitting there). Being that I'm the kind of person that has to modify everything to his liking, the first thing I did was start looking for info on the web, which led me to this fine forum. Seems like a great bunch of TW owners with some fine advice and lots of good tips! I'mvery glad I found this place, and will contribute myself whenever possible.



    I put 25 miles on her Sunday and I have to say, this things a hoot! I have to agree with a lot of you and say the seat is terrible and the gearing is a tad low, but otherwise she's sweet! I've already got a 47t rear sprocket on the way, and a seat will be next.



    Anyhow, I look foward to being a part of this great forum!

    Nice looking bike!



    Only one problem that I can see - it's way too clean!

    Very nice, time to roll out with the mods. Check out my build. It might give you an idea or two. Mr Bracket has gone all out on his. . I find it crazy it was a 2010 just sitting in the showroom for that long . You got urself a deal though Welcome.

    Welcome!



    I just installed a 45t sprocket on mine and like it much better for commuting.

    The Coleman seat cover is a reasonable improvement (for the money).

    Thanks for all the warm welcomes! I rode the tw in to work today and I have to say, the drive home is much more fun on a bike. I think I'll start doing this at least a couple times a week, weather permitting.
