I worked at a Yamaha shop in the mid 80's when the BW's and Tw's came out and really enjoyed taking the demo's for a spin. I was about 25 at the time and just couldn't buy something so "small" because what would my buddies say? I turned 50 this year and have finally outgrown the "what will my buddies say" stage of my life. All that being said, I enjoy the TW for it's ease of riding, the ability to go where my KLR650 won't, its simplicity, and its fuel economy. My buddies can point and laugh all they want, I'm having a blast with it. What about you? Why do you have a TW?
