I don't own 2, just this one. There might be 1 or 2 people that remember me selling my 2013 with a veritable crap-ton of stuff just a year ago. Now that I "reside" in eastern Miss, I have plenty to explore and the right machine to do it.

"Used" 2019 with 135 miles, already installed was a cycleracks, barkbusters and replacement footpegs for $3600. Though I had to drive over 5 hours one way to pick it up. The seller truly cut me major slack on the price, I had only requested $100 difference, because of the extended travel, and he pulled the price another $200. He was getting some major PITA's on craigslist when he first posted, so I think he was glad to find someone who wanted it enough to drive 300+ miles to retrieve it and still willing to pay.

Good things come to those who wait. And a road trip to boot! Nothing wrong with that.

Welcome back to the "Club". :) Now all you need is a 241 and a Seat Concepts!
I had a 244 on my 2013, and while I did like it, it was a bit sluggish, however there is more "meat" to it. Has anyone used both?

I had a Kenda 270 on my first TW for about 5,000 miles, which is very similar to the 244. It started cupping after 4,000 miles, which was only a problem on pavement. I also swapped bikes with a friend for a little while on gravel. His was a 5.10 and like you I found it sluggish. He found my 241 more "jittery" in the gravel. I was glad to get back on my bike. :p If your mix is 40/60 pavement to dirt, like me, I would go with the 241. If it was more like 10/90, perhaps the 244 in 4.10x18. I think the 241 will get more miles....at 5,000 I could barely detect wear.
