    Thanks for the warm welcomes.

    Jumping into a new forum is always like drinking from a firehose. Eventually I hope to contibute as much as I take!

    Now, a chance to walk down dirt bike memory lane...











    And you've seen the KTM and the new TW.

    What a long, strange trip it's been!

    Sequatchie Valley Days June 2-4 and the Blue Ridge Run June 23-25 are coming up. Both of them are not far away from you. Also look up Dual Sport Touring in Friendsville Tennessee. The owner can give you lots of Dub tips.

    Cool!

    I picked up the bike yesterday.

    Let me know if you want to ride some trails one day.

    Thanks!

    We have friends in Friendsville and I've driven by Dual Sport Touring many times and been curious about it. Will have to check it out next time I'm up that way.

    I'll be at our place in Riceville Tennessee for a few weeks in June. Perhaps some of us can meet up in Tellico Plains.

    Alright! I'm also 67, and bought a TW last summer—first bike since 1979! Friends and family think I have a death wish to start riding a bike again at my age! Screw them!

    I mentioned before I think its a good idea to ride a bike "as is" for a while before major farkling begins.

    Have not done much this first week, nor put many miles on the bike.

    I did have a "Mag's Bags" bag I stuck on the luggage rack, if somewhat inelegantly:



    Today I stuck on a RAM ball that I had, just using a longer screw on the left mirror mount:



    I use RAM mounts for all sorts of things, GPS, iPhone, GoPro, whatever. GPS here:



    I like to have 2-conductor trailer plugs somewhere on all my vehicles, for charging and tapping power for various devices.

    Tapped into the battery so:



    And ran the wire under the tank to the bars:



    I know, pretty basic stuff.

    Will be looking at tank bags soon - I've already got some ideas from searching this forum. There's a CycleGear in Knoxville and we're back and forth all the time. Beyond that, I'm going to pace myself with the mods.

    For now!
