Just wanted to introduce myself to what seems like a great bunch of people. Yes I have been lurking also for sometime as I have been trying to find my new tw. After several weeks of searching and negotiating I finally found my new machine 160 miles south of me in Charlottesville Virginia.a prestine 2011 with only 360 miles, covered in cobwebs. I have always been an avid motorcyclist, more off road than on. I started on an old IT 175 then on to an xt 250 then xt 550. Finally purchased my first brand new bike, an 04 drz400s which was sold two years later due to children. Then purchased a brand new 2011 klr 650, which I will be honest has been short lived love affair. Presently that one is for sale. Had to get back to the basics. Not in a very long time have I been so excited to ride. I have only had my tw for a few days. But man am I in love. It will be so awesome to be back riding a bike and not be getting riddin by a bike(klr) if you know what I mean. Any way look forward to learning from you guys and reading about your adventures. By the way its been ten years since I have been able to do our somewhat local Shenandoah 500 dual sport ride in Oct. And you can bet money I will be there this year on the tw. Maybe I will run into One or two of ya there. Anyway thanks and many smiling miles.
