i just want to mention that i get lots of people asking me "what is that?". a couple of times a year i attend "motorcycle night" at nearby towns and always get that question. i enjoy telling them about the TW, but am considering typing up a "handout" for those who ask...to make things a bit easier. i also encourage them to watch youtube videos on how great they perform crossing streams and over rocky terrain. it draws many positive comments in the course of just doing errands around town and when i stop to gas it up. i am a proud tw owner and appreciate how simple, dependable and cool it is. glad i bought it ( 2001 model) used in mint shape 5 years ago for 1,600.
