    It is with great sadness that I start to part out my TW.

    Here is a lesson I learned the hard way.
    Changed my oil at 9000 miles or so. Road 500 miles to my brother's house in Charlotte, NC where I relocated. Proceeded to use the TW for a daily driver in hot weather. Temps in the 90's consistently.
    Riding consistently at highway speeds in excess of 60mph for weeks. Mileage reached 9900 and I experienced a sudden loss in power while riding. Motor quit and I coasted to a stop.
    Inspection revealed almost no oil in the case. I was able to add 2/3 of a quart to reach the proper amount. Unreal!!

    Lesson. Check the oil before every stinking ride!! I'm bummed.

    A stupid and preventable mistake cost me the motor. Rod disconnected from piston, snapped the connector (so I'm told by a shop) and I cracked the case.
    I'm told I need a new motor which it seems will be more than the bike's value.

    So....here's some stuff I've added.
    Cycleracks rack.
    Mounted a Pelican case to it.
    Three tractor fuel tubes. One holds the tool kit, the others more fuel.
    Upgraded foot pegs from the guy from this forum.
    Hand brush guards.

    She's white with blue accents.
    No scratches, plastics in great shape.
    Everything but the motor is in good shape.

    Pictures to follow soon. She's at the shop until tomorrow or so.

    Sucks.
    If you liked the bike and it sounds like you did with all the accessory additions and what you said about the body plastics. I'd just wait to find a used TW or even an XT225 motor. Should be a very easy swap. Find one in the $500 or less ballpark. Check CoParts website for salvage bikes. All you need is the motor. Better than starting over again.

    Very true. I've thought about that. But I'm recently single and am planning to live on the road for a while. I was planning to trade her for a more suitable bike for cross country travel. I'm planning to do the over the world route into Alaska soonish. Thanks for the advice. I figure somebody here could do the same thing and have a pretty sweet ride.
