Spotted what looked to be a very pretty and perfectly restored motorcycle in the shopping center parking lot at Wickenburg, Arizona today.

The owner was packing up his backpack with groceries so I ambled over to investigate.

Howdy. What year is that? Him: Brand New!

Disc front, CDI, EFI, Estart. What a pretty little retro bike. Zero vibration he says at 60 or 65 but feels it's straining a little at 65.

I usually don't go for the old stuff but I really liked the looks of this little rascal.

BTW: 18" on both ends.

I sure like that old school look. It reminds me of my first street machine. A 1978 Honda Twinstar. 185 cc of pure muscle!;)

Inexpensive too. I almost bought one last year then I paused, had a rare rational moment, and simply couldn't figure out what I would use it for. I do like them though.
Same story. I thought "man, that'd be a really cool bike to...." and just couldn't think of what I'd do with it. I've already got a fun bike to putt around on in the TW, and it even takes me off-road when I want to. I do still like them though. Maybe one day...

Couldn't stand it, sure like the lines of the tank. Went and checked specs, over three gal, now where to find one and put on my tw.

My wife and I both have one. They are our "street" bikes for riding around town. Doesn't do anything her TW couldn't, but who am I to argue when she's excited about us both having second bikes??? :)

Robbo, what do you think of the seat? I am planning to "make" a solo seat and TU250X seat could be a good start.

I like the seat but have to say that with the caveat that since the TUs are our "in-town commuter/run to coffee" bikes I've never been in the saddle for a super long day or anything....

My WR250R seat bugs me way worse but of course it's much narrower...

I was wanting one, then I heard about a similar bike from Yamaha but with a 400cc engine. I hope to see one of those sometime.
