Hello,
I'm a 57 year old from North Central WV. I started on dirt bikes back in the early 70's, moved to street bikes in the mid 70's and took a big break from motorcycles starting in the mid 80's (while the kids grew up). That break ended about 2000, and since then I have accumulated 3 Moto Guzzi's, 1 Goldwing and now a 2009 TW 200. This was a left over which I bought new in Feburary of this year. I love it !!!!

I hope to learn the do's and don'ts and the neat little things that other owners do that makes a motorcycle become part of you. A motorcycle can (and should) reflect the owners personality (after you have owned it for a while).

Just want to say Thanks for the help in advance.

BS

Welcome Bob. You seem to fit the owner profile of most TW owners. For folks 'our' age, one of the first acts of personalization seems to be making the seat more comfortable. That can be done in many ways, the most popular of which seems to be an inexpensive seat pad that can be found at many (not all) Walmart stores. Good luck and have fun... Gerry

Thanks for the seat pad tip. I don't (or haven't yet) stay in the saddle very long at one time. I have added a few things to make it more user friendly. I want to camp off of this bike so I'm getting it ready for the mother load.

That's a real nice engine guard. I think there will be a few folks that would like to see some close-ups of that, and information as to where and how much should it be something that we can purchase. Thanks, Gerry
