    New guy from AZ

    Hey everyone! Thought I would join here and introduce myself. I currently ride a 74 Yamaha TX500 that I restored a few months back and then was hit from behind, totaled out and I restored it again https://tw200forum.com/forum/members/...aha-tx500.html ( not back the way I want it but it will do ). I have had and restored several old Honda's in the past and have always leaned towards a bike I can take off road as well. This past year I have found myself riding out on the back dirt roads more often wanting to explore more of the trails but can't due to the type of bike I am on. I have had my eye on the TW's for a while now. Anyway, waiting for my settlement from the accident to come in and I will be picking up my TW200. Damn excited to get back on the trails out here in Arizona.

    Spent about a month riding/camping in the Florence area a few years back. Good stuff down there. The TW will be more docile than the 500.

    Welcome JGillespie!

    Welcome JGillespie!
    It's a good thread to add but in this case JGillespie is ahead of a lot of us in posting pictures. He actually posted a site-hosted album in his first post.

    Welcome to the forum J
