What Bike Did You Ride Today?

Myself, I rode my 1995 Honda CB1000 to a local Dealer and test rode a 2013 TW200.

How was the TW200? I'm thinking about that model for me and the wife. She's real short and I want to explore some backroads.

Nothing to write home about. It will work in traffic. I did not, but I see it working on Hwy for a stint or two. I have no idea about off road. We have sand here anywhere you go off road and I don't know how the large tires will deal with that. Mountain area roads should be fun! I am looking at this to replace my 1975 XL350....KICK START. And be a commuter with 80mpg.
Local dealer $3683 , but then +399+199++++..........
I'll be looking for a used one unless they take 3500 out the door!

As far as riding position, I am 6'1" and it is an up right bike but my knees were a bit high. I will lower the pegs.
