Kimbo20, you still owe us a story along with your BOTM award, might help you meet more of us. For instance what sort of TW riding interests you? Wouldn't want to invite you on too milk-toast or too intense of a ride with a few of us others. We all want to have fun that is not boring but still go home intact. Since these are Dual Sport machines a person can enjoy so much variety whether it be relaxed touring the paved twisty backroads in the foothills out your back door to spirited single track trails with or without rocky "turbulence" as Admiral would say. These bikes are just great for exploring the Sierras on pavement, graded fire roads, or the more intense narrow trails.
By the way Mrs.Admiral rides all flavors and intensities on her custom pink TW WILBUR, she is certainly worth meeting and riding with. Same for SanDue out of Redding, another couple who ride side by side on their matching TWs . They've joined me on many a group ride from mild to slightly wild and lived to tell the tale.

Hmmmm..... let’s see. Been riding off-road since age 10. Continued riding dirt 2-strokes off/on pre and post kids...still ride my ‘01 RM125 at Prairie City (as long as can swing leg over til hip gives out). 😆. Got my M1 about 7-8 years ago because was on my buck list and then picked up a DR350SE which I rode up/down Salmon Falls for a year....til one day I got home and thought kickstand down and a little too much lean and bike tackled me - sold it. Started the hunt for an XT225 and they were hard to find, so about to give up and found one with blown motor for $250 ( now it in the shop). That being said I had been reading all the peeps who loved both their XT225’s and T-dubs. Hmmmm....I remembered Darrell had a couple and thought would ask if one for sale. Well that was about 6 weeks ago after a lovely test ride, I followed him home and we threw it in my truck. I ride it up/down Salmon Falls EDH/Pilot Hill. I like trails....not big on giant loose rock trails. Ridden the RM125 at Mammoth Bar and Sugar Pine Foresthill) and my DR350SE up to Pollock Pines. I’ve pushed the TW up past 65mph.....we’ll see how it compares to the XT225 ( yikes did I just say that out loud on TW forum?!) Lol ..thanks for having me. I’m game for a good ride...need to know what to bring.

Zero modifications so far. The first is going to be a rack!

May favorite aspect of this bike is how it climbs hills. Having mountain biked these hills in Colorado for years, it is so satisfying and thrilling to effortlessly climb up a rutted, scree filled incline!

2018 TDub

Here is my 2018 TDub I bought for myself (finally) as a reward for quitting smoking. You're gonna be sooo jealous of the deal I got! First of all, ironically and not planned, I smoked my last Marlboro Black on 4/20/19! I smoked 2 packs a day. At the time they were $8/pk, so that was $480/month!

I have always been keeping an eye out for a used TDub and in the following November I struck paydirt. A local dealership put one on CL for $2999. Within 24 hours I was there with the cash. I thought for sure they were gonna say it was a typo and supposed to be $3999, which I still would have stolen it for! $2999 WAS indeed the price and the mileage was only 412!! And it gets better! Already on the bike were Tusk handguards and proper foot pegs!

The best part? My not smoking savings paid for the purchase price, tax, insurance and mv fees!!

I have since added a Tusk back rack and upgraded to a Seat Concepts comfort seat. Also a Moose skid plateThe $200 spent on the seat has been the best mod so far and if I was only able to own one with only one mod, it would be that seat. Simply awesome. Discomfort is a non-issue now.

I ride regularly in the NJ Pine Barrens and every ride is epic. Hope to meet more TDubbers and hit the trails in a group.
Hope you liked my story. All true too. I still say that price was a typo but they ate it as a good business move. Thanks for reading. Tom K.
