    After your TW, what is your next most favorite motorcycle?

    DSCN0733.JPGI keep changing on a weekly basis, but right now it is my 2005 Suzuki S50 Boulevard. The bike I would most want back was my 72 or 73 BMW 75/5(mainly for the memories).

    My 2007 Honda 919 holds a very special place in my heart.

    My 2015 BMW f700gs, rides and handles great, quiet smooth running engine with diesel like torque. But it won't go on the rough nasty trails like a TW200 will.

    Interesting question...humans have a tendency to never be satisfied especially when there's so much out there. Professional Advertisers know exactly how to market us and I have to admit I have had the WANTS for stuff all my life. I have owned some really cool toys which I call chapters in my life. I started my motorcycle chapter three years ago when I bought my TW. Of course like any new chapter it comes with excitement. Magazines, TV, Shows, Rally's and friends with bikes. I instantly got caught up in wanting another bike then realized how much I love my TW. With my 45 tooth sprocket it gives me the best of both worlds...I can keep up with my son on his Harley and ride dirt trails with all the power I need.
    The only way I would ever considered a second bike is if my wife would throw a leg over the seat. I would love for her to ride but it scares me a bit that I would get her hurt. Its a lonely sport without her with that said I think I'll take a ride before she wakes up.

    I almost bought one a week ago. I'm still a little conflicted on not having made the purchase.

    After owning my TW, i took my roadstar warrior out for a ride for the first time this year (TW has been getting the most saddle time) after one ride, it really reminded me why it still has a place in my garage.

    But the tw really has me thinking about getting a bigger bore adventure bike, so we will see what happens.

    When I need a thrill or the really rough stuff there is the KTM 250 xc-f. For a relaxing road ride there is the Yamaha SR400. For everything in between is the TW. Notice that in the middle of the word between is TW.
