    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Another nice Made in India machine. Why they can break the 100hp/liter specific output threshold and our TW's can't is an embarrassment. Our TWs should be capable of pumping out 20hp @ 10,000rpm, not 13+ at 9,500.

    nice bike, but, not dual sport. If they made this for on/off...it would be very nice! I've got a great street bike, don't need another and have gotten hooked on riding 2 wheels in the dirt. I love the TW, but having a little more oomph getting to the trails would be great, more than enough power in the dirt for me. BUT, I don't want a taller or significantly heavier bike either. I have not found another bike that I want more than the Dub for my dual sport needs....yet. Plus I've been farkling my Tdub like crazy - I am out of control! I need to figure out how to post pics to show my new favorite (little) ride.

    Looks like a nice bike. I tryed a BMW g650gs before I bought my f700gs.the 700 is a much nicer bike. But for rough, nasty trails, it is hard to beat a TW. The TW is not replaceable for what it is designed for.
