I picked up an 03 Tw in November. Not the fastest thing in the world, I just bought it to beat around town and take up north.

Came with the Clarke tank, original tank, racks, handguards, two bags, fsm, extra mirrors, some tools and only 2700 on it. All I've done is swap out the chain and sprockets to a 15t front, 50 rear and an o-ring chain. The front tire sucks at everything so I bought a Shinko 244 but haven't mounted it yet.

About how much did it cost? I'm thinking about trading my Intruder.

Nice. Jess's bike came with a new road tire unmounted for the back to match the one on the front. It has a cycle rack and a jimbo shield installed. It needs new sprockets, the PO replaced the chain with an o-ring chain a couple years ago, but didn't change sprockets. So I'm not sure if I should go ahead and change all or just replace the sprockets. It was also missing a few fasteners, which after a trip to the hardware store, I have sorted out. It had some powermadd hand guards, but they weren't the solid type, so I took the set off the quad. I'll probably be messing with it today in the garage. :-)

It also needs new fork gaiters/boots. These ones are split in multiple spots.

This one wasn't pristine(but it's getting there) and had 12k miles. I paid 1350$. This is a pretty good price from what I've seen.

Yes seems like it. I'm hoping to find one this spring.
I had an Suzuki RV when I was young. So I kind of know what to expect as far as top speed.

When I took the MSF class, I made sure to grab one of the two TW200s they had, and it was great. I had a much easier time doing the figure 8 box and handling in general thanks to that bike. I have wanted a TW ever since.

My 1984 superglide I can't wait for spring. I had to rebuild the primary over the winter and it needs new tires but I'm ready.

That's a good score.

I've been wanting one since they first came out in 1987, then finally decided to jump on one in late fall. They just don't pop up regularly. Mine was on CL for one hour when I found it at $2100. There are plenty available new but I wasn't feeling the new price.

I just put a Jimbo Shield on mine last month but haven't ridden it yet with it, but I will be this coming weekend if it gets warm. I've put about 100 miles on it this winter, it cruises comfortably between 55-63 with the 15/50 setup. I didn't have any problem getting over 65 either.

Sold my Glide. I didn't know how much I'd miss it until today.
