    Completely unbiased.
    For Moab we must remember to pack our spare hoses, thermostats, anti-boil, water pump impellers and gaskets plus spare radiators and caps.
    Oh, thats right ,our TWs are air cooled!Hurray!

    I have looked for YEARS to find a pristine Bw350. Everybody wants gold for poop. And THAT is a shitty proposition.

    This a very clean BW200 that Joeband found for $1,900. The ratty seated $3,0000 one we should have evan make a low-ball offer since bike is in his Woodland city.
