TW200 - update of sorts..

Someone actually saw my blog(?!!) and asked about the TW.. I realized that a couple things were changed since, and that a pic update is due. Thanks chevyy1212 for the motivation..

Since last time around: shortened the header, ditched the muffler's dinky reverse-cone cap, and gave the tank a quick coat of neutral gray.. It's probably worth mentioning that this is the first bike i've owned that's fully legit, insurance, reg, safety insp, (seriously) in decades..

Picked up a bone-stock '08 TW200 locally.. It was the perfect 'quickie' build for what little free time I have.  Cut up some handlebars, bent up a battery/electrical tray, a splashguard, and tail/turn mounts. Did a quick CV mod and rejet, slapped on a round headlamp.. The OEM graphics are nasty, and I'm not 100% sure if I dig the exhaust. There are a few more details in the works, but it is what it is for now. Oh, smaller rear sprocket for the 65+ mpg bike helps to offset the cost of $4.09/gal regular 87 unleaded. Ugh.

Driver training?

Much to the wife's dismay, the little one felt right at home at the wheel!

Pepper White..

The Corolla underwent an 8 hour makeover, thanks to a few friends. I needed to choose a color, and Pepper White was the one that I wouldn't be disgusted with a few months down the road..

up the hill..

There's a hill in my backyard that i haven't hiked up in ages.. Friday afternoon seemed like a good time for it. All that fighting with gravity was worth it!
