I'm going down. :-( Started in October by buying a new 2010. Couldn't find a used one where I lived in Coos Bay, OR. The dealer there had a new one on the floor, and I had to have it. In early November, after getting to our winter home in Yuma, I traded the 2010 for a Harley Sportster, which I soon sold and bought a used 2008 TW200. In early January, sold the 08 to a neighbor, and bought an 08 XT250. Well, I missed being able to be in the photo contest, so today I bought a 2000 T-dub. Only 4500 miles, but, it's been outside every day of it's 11 year life. rust and corrosion. But, it looks like some intensive care with cleaning, touch up paint, and lubricating will get it presentable. Need to change all the fluids, and will probably order an O ring chain. It has a heel toe home made shifter, I I'll order a new shift lever, and probably sell the heel toe for what I have to pay. Unless anyone wants to trade a stock one for it. Now, I have to go out and find some water! :)

So you went from a brand new 2010 to an old 2000? I bet you'll have a lot of fun putting this one back in shape, if you hold on to it

Very perseptive Sinophilia. I've known Holligan for awhile now and in just the last two years here in AZ he has had at least 11 bikes. TW's to Goldwings and everything in between. I've got to give him credit though, I would say that he rides at least 345 days per year. Oh yeah, if you're riding with him, he will be leading, and you will be having a hard time keeping up with him. At least I do, and everyone tells me I'm crazy!
