Exactly why I'm trying to stay away from it. Sounds like it would take some effort and dedication to play it right. I couldn't offer either. It does sound like a fun one though.

The main thing it changes is my rides are more of a pattern now.
and then the walking around downtown with other people, then hopping on the bike to run around real quick and get XM (energy) and sometimes throwing everyone else's phone in the bag to get it for all of us.

It's definitely a social game, but can be played a "little" or a lot. The biggest "enemy" that we're dealing with is a tow truck driver. Tough to deal with someone that's all over town all day, and who knows where he'll attack.
Amusingly, he said you get strange looks, but no one says anything to the towtruck parking anywhere. :)

New tag. No idea the number. Sorry.



There is a small gravel path that takes you to the pool. Should be accessible to all bike types. If you dont want to get your chrome dirty you can take a photo of the sign in the parking lot.


Don't feel like making a riddle so here's your clue: Oak Park Swim and Tennis Club. Enjoy.

Thanks Chad. I'm still not 100% but good enough to get around now. I'm still in the market for a daily commuter. But I'm enjoying the new, 25 year old toy for the time being.

I hope you are doing well.

Hope everyone is doing well.

thats an awesome pic rugby...there are folks i know who think the TW200 is a superior off road machine to many higher hp and larger displacement bikes and it may not be as fast but then how fast do you really need to go off road?... few if any others can go thru the loose sand and just float along thru it like a T dub can...everyone else will either flop over...or squirrel their way thru...or try to go around ... but the t dub just plows right thru it...in no small part due to those hugmongous tires...all fun stuff...now I'm wishin I could get one

Sprint. Truly. Sucks.

I would have beat you to the posting if I had not flubbed the first picture and had come in the other way - had to turn around to get the sign lit up

Eh.

I only had the bike at work today because I had to get some recall work done over at ray price during lunch.... and saw this one was sort of on the way home. Good ride though - always fun!
