    Hey Guys,



    New to the forum and am looking to get a used TW200. I remember learning on the bikes at the MSF courses and have always wanted my own. Budget is tight so just wanted a clean running TW, year doesn't matter, miles don't matter as much either.



    Couldn't find anything on CL in the area or on ebay..



    **Found One.. See Picture Below**

    Be patient; one will show up. What with winter coming on, and this crappy economy; people will be selling off their summertime toys.

    Actually, in Chicagoland, TWs rarely show up on Craigslist. I see maybe one or two a year and they don't last long. Patience and persistence is key with CraigsList. It's why I decided to purchase new. Not trying to bring you down, just letting you know you really need to keep your eyes open in Chicagoland.

    I saw a 2010 with less than 200 miles for like $2900, but I prefer something older and less expensive as I'd like to work on something in the winter for fun. But i'm def keeping an eye out. Thanks for the reply.

    I'm thinking of letting mine go. 90 black 6000 miles on it. I'm a little south of you in Terre Haute, Indiana.
