I have an XT along with my TW and I love them both. Each definitely has their strong suit but honestly the only one that is indispensable is the TW, they make better dual sports than the XT by far. BUT if you have a riding partner then I think it would be worth fixing up just for the sheer amount of slow motion fun that can be had when those bikes are together.(pending budget, time, effort, skill etc)

I'd vote for a most excellent roady bike. Some 90/10 tires, locking box on back, awesome commuter/errand bike. When fuel prices go back up, such a unit will be worth serious duckets. Fuel predicted to head up after the elections. Narrower tires and more visible stance (taller) make the XT superior road mount than a TW. Not to mention the XT is mo able to maintain speeds suitable for roadwork.

not to hijack your thread, but this xt225 looks really clean and you might get it for a few hundred less....
