I've been known to lurk on a board or two, but if you ask me, this forum is entirely too much fun to not postand interact with you all. Thanks to all those for making it what it is.

Outstanding. Love the brotherhood here and willingness to help each other out. Makes owning these special bikes, a little more special. Cheers to all of you.

I just purchased an old 1989 Black&red Tw thats getting a little face lift right now. just ordered all new plastic,brake,cables,tires,clutch and much more, though Im attempting to not tear it to far apart until the weather turns bad here in the northwest. Im havin to much funn ridding it.

I've been lurking and gathering info on Tdubs for the past few weeks and finally got up the nerve to request an account. Just picked up a 2000 Tw200 with only 622 miles a couple weeks ago, so I'm starting to gain a sense on what I want to do with it (or rather what I can get my hubby to do), mostly minor stuff right now. I'm just a gurl and in no way mechanically inclined.

not sure i have much more knowledge, other than if you start with an empty bowl at the beginning of the project, and you add no parts, the bowl should be empty at the end for the project. the rest ive learned from people here.

Well let me be the first to welcome you to the board! And congrats on your new Tdub. Welcome!

For those relatively new members, I as well say Welcome.



Please don't get yourself locked into thinking you are limited as to what you can contribute.. We have lots of great mechanics and 'engineers'. There are more than a few adventure riders and many of them have video cameras and have become very adept at putting together really neat ride reports. I'm not particularly mechanical when it comes to major stuff, but have created a unique niche for myself by finding 'backyard' solutions and presenting 'off-the-wall' ideas. Seems I have become a pretty good 'cheerleader' with my "Missing Link Award".



There are so many ways to get involved. Found a real good way or product to get your bike clean after a day in the mud? Proud of how well organized your Photobucket account is, share your methodology. Mine is a real mess as a few members have found out. There still is a lot of room to fit-in with out picking up a wrench or knowing what color your spark plug should be. I just recently read a post on the ADV riders forum. Some fellow showed us how he turned a pair of coveralls into touring bags. The idea was clever and functional.. Good Luck. Gerry





Likely this is the last thing you have any interest in doing. However your 'crazy' idea may get someone else moving on a more worthwhile project.

WTH?!!! Now that is cool!! Need to see a video of that snowdub in action! Outlandish! That is a ski you have on your front tire right?!

Yup, $10 for the set at the local Salvation Army. I have found the TW is not all that good in the snow around here (not that I did much snow riding). In my mind, the slightly modified water ski showed promise. At my age, it did not make sense to try and make it further into mountains this time of year so the ski now hangs from the rafters of my shop.



We all have lots we can offer. Gerry
