What do you plan on doing with the new TW?
I ask because washing a bike that goes in the dirt only makes things rust faster.

I think they look much better with mud all over them.

It was washed to take pics, not likely to be that clean again ;) I'll be commuting on it, taking it out on logging roads and some easy trail riding.

one of my favorite color schemes. i like to spray a ton of silicone all over the underside of the plastics and the areas that youll never clean, helps the junk fall off.

Ruh Roh Raggy - I'd better avoid Wash. State!

Me and my trail riding partner Georgie







Motorcyclist cited for dog riding on back

OLYMPIA, Wash. A motorcyclist was cited for endangering his dog while driving down the highway Wednesday.
The dog was precariously perched on the seat behind its owner, which is not only dangerous but illegal.
The Washington man was driving down Highway 3 in Kitsap County when a trooper spotted him and pulled the motorcycle over.
The trooper also tweeted photos of the man and his dog, to warn others of the dangers.



Guess I'll have to get serious on some options should I want to ride in the Evergreen State!
