    Laurenís Coming Home From Hawaii For A Visit.

    Iím Stoked!!! Lauren got her motorcycle endorsement and bought a Yamaha V-Star250 and has been riding for just over a year now. The first thing she wants to do when she gets home is ride my extra TW.
    I serviced them today so they are ready to ride.

    Pictures to come...

    Look who Lauren booked a dive for last week. Unfortunately she wasn’t able to dive with them.

    That really is cool and Nicole should be proud she is working at one of the premier dive shops in HI. The SS would not have picked her shop if was just some flea bag operation.

    I picked Lauren up from the airport this morning after her grueling plane ride. She was a little tired but wanted to take a TW ride before she layed down for a nap.

    She hurt my feelings She said my TW didn’t have much power, was slow and she had to shift three times before it started picking up speed. Hahaha. I guess after riding her V-Star 250 losing 50cc makes a big difference.
    We did have a nice 45 mile ride.

    TopPredator I wish you a speedy recovery.

    I had a different experience. My daughter rides a CBR250 and after taking out my 15 TW she was like " I love this thing." We are planning our first motorcycle trip together for next week and she is not sure which bike she wants to take so I told her to take them both out for a good ride tomorrow so we can figure out our route based on what she is riding. Fingers crossed :-)

    You just missed the splash...for the picture. You might still have gotten some of the splash. Kind of cool when our kids like to do what we do doesn't it. Mostly!

    I’ll let her ride the Black Widow next. It’s a lot more peppy plus I need to take her off road for some trail riding.

    Is there any reason why the black widow is more peppy than your other TW? Maybe different sprockets or some other change you made. I just wonder because if everything is the same such as carbs and gearing then both bikes should be closely matched in performance. I have had numerous TWs and from both the older and newer model years and never really found one that was all that much different than another unless the sprockets were changed or a carb was not quite tuned correct.
