    Introduction

    Hi All,
    I have been a member here for a little bit and have just kind of lurked a little. I bought a 2006 TW200 with ~14k on it back in August as a second bike to go play in the dirt with. So far its been a whole lot of fun and i guess i am officially addicted to the TW, since i bought it ive logged more miles on it than i have on my Ducati Muiltistrada 1200.

    I have done a few things to mine so far, Golden boy on the front, pro taper bars, 130 main jet and shimmed needle, a ram mount for my phone. I plan to do a lot more things like a cycle rack, pegs, kickstart kit, skid plate etc to make it even better. So far i have learned a lot of things here about whats available and where to get it, things to do to it etc, this forum is a weath of information.

    Over this winter first thing is i need to tear into the motor as i'm burning some oil. Last time i changed the oil a piece of a valve seal came out so i'm going to rip the head off and see what is up and worst case scenario i will do a total top end rebuild.

    Jim, your not addicted. You can quite anytime you choose...you just choose not to quit! Welcome, hope you have fun here on the forum.
