    went over to the red side

    Sold my TW after 5 years of fun, 90 000 km and all kind of modifications and upgrades.
    My family convinced me that I should get a new bike.
    Just about everything was ready for a big ride to celebrate my retirement.
    A 5 gallon tank, 215 cc for just a little more power and all the other little tweeks that made it my bike.

    So yes they were right, I should not go bantering of on a 10 to 20 000 km ride on a 18 year old bike with
    120 000km already done. Parts are hard or impossible to get here, always ordered parts from the USA, but that will be hard to do when I am on the move in Eastern Europe and Asia.

    They don’t sell the TW here anymore, I looked around and went over to the red side.
    Got myself a Honda CRF250L and guess what? Again with a little 2 gallon tank.
    I will find a solution to get back to the 5 gallon capacity.

    Over the years I have enjoyed the tw200forum,
    Thanks folks and have fun,
    Regards, Johan

    For real, just because you had to go to a different bike, don't shut us out. Would be nice to keep up with your adventures. Keep us posted, you are still part of the family.

    Yeah feel free to stay with the forum....I replaced my TW with a CRF230L for smoother highway gearing but I still stick around and try to help out where I can.

    Enjoy the 250L. I'm tempted to trade my 230 for one for the extra 8-10 HP, but its not a significant enough of a difference really. I'll just wait for a TW350 or a CRF350-450L...hopefully one or the other will be a reality eventually.
    2008 CRF230L

    2006 CBR1000RR

    2007 CB919 - 70k Miles and still runs like new!

    Thanks for the kind reply's and yes, I will be around, after all this is an amazing forum with great folks.

    By the way, I moved the handlebar from the TW to the CRF, so while riding nothing much changed.
    That handlebar was original from a Yamaha XTZ750.

    Bet you were sad to see TW go, you did a lot of miles together
    Hope you will be happy with your new purchase

    He could not ride a TW that many miles without really really liking it. Give'em a year. He'll back. Or at least I'm betting.
    Ya gotta finish the loop, it's the only way out.
