Price reduced to $2500
Alright. I really don't want to do this, but it makes sense financially since I'm getting a new bike. It truly pains me to type this out. I'm selling my '07 TW that I've put a lot of love, sweat, and busted knuckles in to. As a matter of fact, there's a nice blood blister on my hand as I type this from the work I did to it yesterday. It currently has just under 6,500 miles, but that will change as I ride it daily. I purchased it this past November with 2000 miles, and have done a lot of work to it and ridden it quiet a bit since then.
This bike is not perfect. I laid it over going 10-15mph when I first purchased it and that scuffed up the plastic just above the muffler. There's a few dings on the right side of the gas tank, along with small chips from the 1000's of miles of gravel riding I've managed to do with it since purchasing it. I had planned on adding a Clarke tank so that never bothered me. Also, it is almost time to replace the rear tire. If it were me, I would purchase the OEM tire. It handles great on both pavement and gravel.
It developed the dreaded base gasket leak after I switched to synthetic oil. I replaced the base gasket, along with a majority of other gaskets, per the maintenance manual when it had 4,350 miles. (It even caused me to purchase my first torque wrench. I think my friends got tired of me borrowing theirs ) I haven't seen another drop of oil since then.
I replaced the spark plug and adjusted the valves at 5000 miles.

Charging lead off the battery located under side panel. Can also us it to charge phones/GPS with included adapter
Please note: The bike no longer has the blue Tusk handlebars as shown in the photos. Those bent so I went back to the stock handlebars. You could buy another pair for under $30. Also, the Pelican rear trunk will not be included either. It will be moving to the new toy.
Here's a picture of the bike in "adventure mode." This was the last week of June when I took it on a 1,000 mile trip through the great state of Arkansas.

Still have the TW? I'm in Wichita but will be down at Beaver Lake next weekend
At the beginners riders course today, one instructor told me he regretted ever selling his tw.
