Thank you...I tend to agree - LOL My Tw nor I want to hear those past comments...as she has moved on- HAI say give Kimbo20 the Bike of the Month Award for that is one fine looking TW!
Her refurbished bike seems in tune with what many owner's desire, a clean TW200 with a bit of personalizing bling. The XT225 tank with the blue frame and fresh white plastic really work well together. Would have made a popular stock offering.
Imagine those who have seen this bike in years past would agree the transformation is impressive. I seem to recall hearing some less than flattering NorCal comments, but then again I am getting old and senile with questionable recall.
You too sweet...thanks.OK, so you guys brought me out of hiding in the hills to make a comment. Yes Kim has done a GREAT job on the bike and should win BOTM. She will fit right in with this forum and the Norcal Nutjobs, if we ever re-group.
Fred's memory is better than he is letting on! And for the record, this was bike was never named "The Barney." (Got that Joeband? No Barney, no way!)
I guess since Kim's bike looks so much better and different I probably don't need to change my Profile Picture.
I can also assure you Kim is no "Old Lady" by any stretch of the imagination. And yes Fred she looks WAY better than me on my best day. Kim is one of those rare birds who is very capable fixing and maintaining a bike herself. Oh and it gets even better...she drives a pickup!
Now back to the woods for me.........
I think BETTY deserves a few extra points for so graciously accepting the continuous2003 TW Betty Boop, since she takes me to so many worthwhile destinations:
Extended swingarm, aftermarket tires, skidplate, handguards, footpegs, cargo rack & LED lighting plus bright custom paintwork for visibility. XT225 gas tank for a bit more volume and bling. Larger 223cc 6-speed TTR engine and 13x55 sprockets really enhance versatility vs. stock for safer solo explorations out west.
