    Buddy Bike

    I was talking to to Jim yesterday the owner of "Yamaha TW200 DualSport Worldwide" (which I'm a member of) Facebook page and he mentioned he had a spare TW. He called it a Buddy Bike which I had never heard the term used before. When I bought my Black Widow I wasn't sure what I would do with an extra bike...and now I know. If this Vermont title works out I will have a Buddy Bike so if member stops by... "You have wheels"

    Who else has a Buddy Bike?
    If I’m ever on LIFE SUPPORT, UNPLUG ME. Then plug me back in... See if that works. Hidden Content

    I am comsidering keeping using my TW in that manner. Leaving it at the cottage for "others" to use. It would slso be nice to have there when I dont want to load up the bikes or we take the Explorer.

    For folks that are visiting for BBQ/Birthday Party/etc. the TW is the "Buddy Bike".
    Especially for those folks that say "Gee, I haven't ridden a bike in years" or "you know what they say, you never forget how to ride". Yeah, right, get off the BMW, here's the keys to the Yamaha and follow close behind me!

    The TW is an easy & gentle way for them to get reacquainted (and keeps my other bikes safe). I see all potential riders as "Mayhem" when their feet haven't been in the water for years.

    I have one. I've always called it a "loaner". You don't have to be my "buddy" to use it.

    I have a dozen or so "spares".

    Usually have people ride CT70s or mopeds if the need arises.

    I got me a buddy bike... Had it for about 3 years and it has about 2,000 miles on it... I can not knock this little jewel. It is a kick to drive, dirt or road. Not 1 problem as of yet.
