I've been mesmerized by the tw for years - like a cute puppy, always attracted to it but passed over for 'cooler' bikes - a ttr225 and a very cool wr250. Last fall, I found a deal on a tw (see I was always secretly looking) and bought it. Seems like I ride it much more than the wr - a quick grocery run, an around town errand - I grab those keys first.
This past weekend, a friend decided he wanted a dirt bike so he bought a wr250 - I thought this would be a good excuse to take my tw to the Sam Houston forest with him so we could compare rides and bikes. Wow - I fell for this bike. Hard. So easy. So maneuverable. So fun and smile-inducing. I'm not done with the wr - yet. Yes the tw doesn't have the suspension travel of the wr, but it's comfortable, not intimidating and just plain goes anywhere. I love it.
And guess what - my friend who just bought a wr - is adding a tw to his garage this Friday.
