    Sheepishly selling the 2010 TW200 that I spent so long hunting for last summer and that so many people here on the forum generously helped me to learn how to ride. Unfortunately, in the scheme of my life's dream fulfillment, motorcycle training/riding has to give way to completing the work on my house.



    Bike had 1300 miles on it when I bought it last summer (from a guy who had bought it for his wife but she preferred the backseat of his bike to the driver seat of her own). I put another 100 miles or so on it learning how to ride -- mostly doing figure eights and laps in a nearby hayfield, until I built up the confidence and skill to do a couple of longer circuits on my local country roads before I called it a season in September.



    In addition to the bike, I got myself a gorgeous super lightweight (and, yes, expensive) NEXX XRIR Carbon XS helmet, as well as some terrific boots (women's size 7), jacket and pants. I think it's highly unlikely that anyone will be in the market for the helmet, but it's in mint condition and so am just putting it out there for your consideration.



    $2700 for bike.



    If I did it right, my profile picture should be a photo of the bike, since it seems to be the only way to upload a photo directly without opening up an online photo account.



    Thanks.

    Annoyingly clean example Having been in contact with CMC since the beginning of their "TW experience" and knowing its history to be exactly as stated, it should go fast:







    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Dayum....good deal
    “One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast....a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it’s still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this; You will outlive the bastards.”

    Tx, lizrdbrth. Says a lot about this forum that folks treat outgoing members with as much warmth as they do incoming members -- even those whose membership turned out to be a long run for a short slide.



    And FYI to other users: Have already gotten a solid inquiry from a guy who only just joined. Transaction is planned for tomorrow evening; I'll update then with news re whether it's still available or if it has, in fact, been sold.

    Bike sold this evening. Strange to see it go before I really had a chance to get to know it.



    In all events, thanks to all of you who were so generous with your support and guidance last year. Don't make me name names! You know who you are!



    (And if you know any small sized riders who might be interested in some equipment -- Revitt Boots, a lightweight pair of armored pants and jacket and a NEXX XRIR Carbon helmet, give me a holler. Otherwise, I may have to wander Southern Vermont looking like Mad Max for no reason at all rather than for one that required no explanation).

    Drop in from time to time and keep us posted on your well being.
