Just signing in as a new member. I did not know about the "other TW" forum until the other day, so I thought I should check it out.
I run a small motorcycle school in northern IL - - - www.lrn2ryd.com - - - and I think the TW is the perfect training bike. I just bought number 7 last month.
I retired from the Navy in 1995, serving on 2 frigates, a destroyer, a cruiser and an ammoship. Then I taught high school math for 10 years and retired from that profession. Now I train riders from May until November with the school and I prepare taxes from January to May to pay the bills. The school is something I do for fun and just hope to break even with.
I do a lot of long distance and adventure riding on either my 2001 BMW R1200C Montana or my 2002 BMW R1150GS Adventure.
I'm always looking to learn more about the TWs - so I hope I can learn something from the folks on this forum. Hope to get to know a bunch of you. Larry
