Sheepishly selling the 2010 TW200 that I spent so long hunting for last summer and that so many people here on the forum generously helped me to learn how to ride. Unfortunately, in the scheme of my life's dream fulfillment, motorcycle training/riding has to give way to completing the work on my house.



Bike had 1300 miles on it when I bought it last summer (from a guy who had bought it for his wife but she preferred the backseat of his bike to the driver seat of her own). I put another 100 miles or so on it learning how to ride -- mostly doing figure eights and laps in a nearby hayfield, until I built up the confidence and skill to do a couple of longer circuits on my local country roads before I called it a season in September.



In addition to the bike, I got myself a gorgeous super lightweight (and, yes, expensive) NEXX XRIR Carbon XS helmet, as well as some terrific boots (women's size 7), jacket and pants. I think it's highly unlikely that anyone will be in the market for the helmet, but it's in mint condition and so am just putting it out there for your consideration.



$2700 for bike.



If I did it right, my profile picture should be a photo of the bike, since it seems to be the only way to upload a photo directly without opening up an online photo account.



Thanks.

that's a nice color scheme

Annoyingly clean example
Having been in contact with CMC since the beginning of their "TW experience" and knowing its history to be exactly as stated, it should go fast:

Tx, lizrdbrth. Says a lot about this forum that folks treat outgoing members with as much warmth as they do incoming members -- even those whose membership turned out to be a long run for a short slide.



And FYI to other users: Have already gotten a solid inquiry from a guy who only just joined. Transaction is planned for tomorrow evening; I'll update then with news re whether it's still available or if it has, in fact, been sold.

Bike sold this evening. Strange to see it go before I really had a chance to get to know it.



In all events, thanks to all of you who were so generous with your support and guidance last year. Don't make me name names! You know who you are!



(And if you know any small sized riders who might be interested in some equipment -- Revitt Boots, a lightweight pair of armored pants and jacket and a NEXX XRIR Carbon helmet, give me a holler. Otherwise, I may have to wander Southern Vermont looking like Mad Max for no reason at all rather than for one that required no explanation).

Who needs a house?



Priorities Woman!



Should you find you miss the bike more than you can stand, now you know just what to do with the next one.



Drop in from time to time and keep us posted on your well being.
