    how do you complement your tw? (other bikes)

    HI,

    I have notices that the TW is a great bike with a lot of followers, so what other bikes do you have to complement the fat tire bike?

    I have a KLR650 so far, maybe bike #3 in a year or 2.

    Cheers

    Damasovi

    I have a Honda 919 for strictly street duty as well as the TW.

    My TW has had a few stablemates along the way
    First was a Gilera XR1, only a 125cc but was very rapid, but had to go as it was just too tall (i'm only 5 foot), very nice looking with lots of nice bits like double front mudguard, extra bars
    Then came a Honda XR250, white tank, stainless exhaust, I polished all the ally bits, very pretty
    Then KTM Duke2 that I inherited off the other half, only had 1215 miles on it at 4 years old as he'd hardly ever used it, i ran that as a summer bike only, it was immaculate
    When that got a bit long in the tooth traded it in for my current 'other bike', KTM 690SMR, but that only goes out really when we go out on bikes together, so he doesn't have to wait for me to catch up

    I own a 2011 Ducati Multistrada 1200 fully rigged for touring. It's an entirely different motorcycle for an entirely different purpose.

    Pair of 2006 TW's modded to the hilt and a Ducati Multistrada.

    ducati monster for playing. nothing but pure bike. No extra junk. Motor, wheels, handlebars, and power. Nothing like it period. valve springs? what for. Just you and the road. Oh and to top it off I would say I have a thing for the air cooled 2v motors.

    For touring I have an 82 honda gl500I that has been restored. Neat design, reliable, comfortable, ect. Transverse twin with shaft drive.

    Regardless of the bikes you have the equation is simple. The perfect number of bikes to own is N+1 where N=how many bikes you have currently. Keep the rubber side down and ride on!

    I have a 2001 Honda VFR, and a 2009 Triumph Sprint St 1050 to keep me happy on the street. To tell you the truth, I put about 3500 miles on the T dub last year. About as much as each of the others. I saw a lot more scenery while aboard the T dub.
