    My TW now has a twin

    I picked up another 2006 today so i now have a pair of twin TW's in my stable

    This one has 1800 miles on it, its in fantastic shape and runs very well. Even the factory front tire looks new. The only thing missing on it were the factory mirrors which the person i bought it from said were swapped by the prior owner. That's no biggie and easily fixed. I also want to swap out the bars for another set of pro taper ATV high's. The ones that are on it now i don't like the bend so much. I will most likely post them for sale once replaced if anyone is interested in them.

    I think this one is going to be my daily rider and my old one with 14k on the clock will be the one my girlfriend will learn on. I already have a few things i want to do right away, one is the bars. I need to tune up the carb, the throttle response is as flat as my other one was when i got it. The front tire is also going to have to go as well. We will see form there what i do with it. Here is a pic of the twins in my garage that needs to be cleaned up badly.

    I've got a set of Pro Taper ATVs on my '95. Best upgrade I have done, so far. Got them here from a forum Bro for $20 + shipping. ($42+/-) Not bad.

    The bars do look good, the bend is just not what i like, too wide and straight. Jimbo shields are on my list of upgrades for both, skid plates for both, i also want lizard coolers for both when the new ones are available and a bunch of other stuff. I plan to build both out pretty much the same way as a lot of the time ridden will be off road. The new one is getting a cycle racks and skid plate straight away since i have them in the garage now. I need to order some stuff and get them both built up.
