Man you guys are really making me sad I sold my TW200. I put 10,000 miles on mine in 4 years. Did just about every mod you can do on one. They are an absolute blast. Wasn't planning on selling mine, but shortly after buying my DR350 I was at the motorcycle shop with the TW and a guy started asking me questions about the it and if I was interested in selling it. I told him I had more money in mods than the bike was worth. He said....how much. I shot what I thought was a ridiculous price and he said SOLD.
I don't ever plan on selling either of my TWs unless they update it (then maybe I'll get an updated version). Of the few people I've heard selling theirs most regret doing so. They are just a blast to ride! Not fast, not powerful, not fancy or high tech, just fun. TWs have quite a following, almost cult like... Interesting tib-bit about them... They are the only motorcycle that has been on expeditions to both the North & South poles. TWs are an "anti-attitude" bike. People laugh at them until they get left behind by the TW climbing an impossible hill, or mud, sand, snow trail.
