Since you didn't insert a quote, I'm not sure who you're referring to... But, for me, some of my favorite things about the TW is the mechanical simplicity, it's tough and rugged, low seat height and overall size, the fact that it's street legal and can go pretty much anywhere as long as you're not in a huge hurry. Simple in terms of being a basic air cooled, carbureted bike with two valves with screw adjustable tappets. Simple... no computers, no sensors... Just straight forward mechanical device that's easy to service and maintain. The low seat and smaller size means I'm more apt to go places that I might not go on a large, tall, heavy, hard to manage bike. This gives me the sense of exploration and adventure that's been sort of missing from my riding since the days of my youth aboard my very first bike, a 1976 Honda XL70. I've had many larger, faster, "better" bikes over the years. And I couldn't even count the dirt paths that I've passed and thought, "Hmmm... wonder where that goes..." as I rode by because there was no way I was going to risk riding my big mount down there to find out. I don't find myself doing that when I'm aboard the little TW. Besides, can a small bike look any more badass?
