  1. I wouldn't be so sure. Forums are fantastic for focused communities and many of them are still around and doing quite well. I've run several in the past and currently run one for a niche euro off-roader that is quite active given the comparative rarity of the toys. Facebook is ok for casual mass consumption, but information tends to get buried there and the "true" enthusiasts generally seek out a more dedicated and focused community. I have noticed that local/regional forums do tend to die off (r.i.p. stlsr/stlvw/etc..). In any case, before you feed this place to the big bad evil Facebook, let me know. I'm a sucker for absorbing wayward BBS's/forums/etc.. that need a home.
  2. Went and got me a proper big-boy bike. Now all those chopper gangs wont laugh at me.
  3. ^This guy gets it. Anyone here riding a TW200 in Bee Tree park on mothers day by chance? Got a wave out of him/her.
  4. I know your pain. Being similarly fleet'd up here, I can safely say that the only sane approach is a personal warehouse.
  5. They are fantastic little cars. I've owned around three dozen cars/trucks in my life, and the 944 will definitely stand out as one of the all-time greats. Sadly I'm at a point where I need to prune down the collection, and going fast around corners while giggling like a hyena on whippits is low on the priority list. Tomorrow I'll be trading it off to a gentleman for a nice ATV, which will then make a more practical trade-in at the stealership when the Tenere700 finally hits US showrooms.
  6. Something like a Porsche 944? And if so, I just so happen to have one that needs to give up its garage spot for something with a smaller footprint. Edit: shit nevermind, just scrolled down and saw "sold"...
  7. Dunno about more versatile, but I'll definitely be slower than most everything else. Got the new bars on finally. Still need to get the Barkbusters mounted, controls adjusted, and figure out what I'm going to do about mirrors.
  8. Right on. I still need to get the bike put back together and let my ankle heal up (broke it on the drop in that video above), but I'm definitely down for a ride.
  9. Danke danke. Since you guys like pics, and videos are just a bunch of those lined up, here's some fodder. I literally almost died and can't even. Death from above. Construction workers laid a booby trap.
  10. Nice. I used "just something slow to putz around on" as my excuse for the TW, and I keep telling myself I'm done with larger and faster, but I've been eyeballing DR650's, and I'm kinda antsy for the Tenere700 to come out: https://www.yamahamotorsports.com/adventure-touring/models/tenere-700 I'm not exactly a small gent so something larger makes sense, but I don't want to lose any of the small bike fun.
  11. Thanks for the welcomes. I don't take a lot of pics, but here are the current two wheeled members of the fleet. Nothing too impressive, but I will say, after owning a dozen or so bikes, most bigger and faster, it's hard to beat a little TW for a fun/purity of riding factor. It's just a happy little place to be, even if you do get made fun of by the chopper gangs. As for what kind of riding I like to do, I'm down for pretty much anything. Highway is out until something larger sneaks into the garage, but I prefer back roads anyway. My usual outings are just an hour or two, backroads up and down the Meramec, with the occasional veer off into some woods or dirt if the situation presents itself.
  12. Hi, my name is nihil, and I'm an addict. I got my first taste of motorized two wheeled transportation a little over 30 years ago, and have been involved in an on-again/off-again relationship with it ever since. I have sinned in the form of everything from lawnmower powered minibikes to large displacement cruiser/drag bikes, and many things in between. My current relapse has me astride a TW200 as the streetable/daily, and occasionally a vintage KX125. I found this site by way of casual mention at a gas station. I'm not entirely sure he was talking about this particular forum, but this did show up as the first result for "St. Louis motorcycle forum" on the mighty Googles, and I'll sign up for almost anything if it involves turning dollars into torques or carbon byproducts.
