We just moved to a smaller home and garage and my wife says one motorcycle has to go. I have a 2013 TW I bought and found out old injuries wont allow rough off road riding. I still enjoy putting around town on it and some better back country dirt roads.

I friend in the Marines was sent to Japan so I bought his 2011 Yamaha 650 (Harley clone) It sounds mean but is a handful and a bit hard to maneuver. I dont ride major streets or freeways so I hardly use the power.

I know several people on here are multiple bike owenrs and could use you thoughts on which bike to keep.

Thanks for your thoughts....

You're asking the TW forum, so it seems like you've already decided!

short answer, yes. Keep the TW. You said it yourself, the 650 is a handful. The TW is not and will take you anywhere you wanna go. TIM


p.s. Your wife got a sister?

lol, remind the wife that her sewing room would make a great TW storage and modification room / mancave and maybe she will find it doesn't really take up much garage space :)

Also remind her how much the cute lil waitress down at the local pub loves TW 200's :)

You have a backyard don't you? Build a little "lean-to" or a shed and let the bike (or her) sleep there. Theres ALWAYS a way.

2nd what Don said. Since ive had the TW my 6fitty has been all alone in the garage with no love. The only time i ride it is to keep the battery up and to keep the carbs from sitting to long and gummin up. Its up to you but you are asking guys on a TW forum if you should get rid of a TW. We know which one you love. Here you go, yes sell the 650.

If you don't need to go much faster than 50 mph go with the TW. cheaper to own, and much more fun to ride.

I just don't understand. I have had and still have some neat bikes. The TW is such a little twerp. But when I go outside for a putt, more and more it is the little twerp. Kind of like my dog. Gives and gives and asks little in return.

I have 2 bikes, a Yamaha FJR1300 and the powerful TW. This past summer, I rode two seperate trips to northern MN, totalling 500 miles each, round trip. Guess which one was more fun for a 61 year old kid,yep the mighty TW.
