I passed by TWO yesterday morning - dodging about a million bicycles that were having some sort of race.

It is starting to get cleaned up and back in shape.

Thanks for the kind words Tripper. It was a labor of love, that's for sure. It also helped that we had great support from our customers, without those we couldn't have paid the bills.

I was up there 2 weeks ago. Stopped at the old TWO. Seems the new vision is, well, vision. Room 4 has been sacrificed for a window.
GT, I think I followed you down 60 on my DR Sumo. How many other VX800s are there in Suches?
BTW, I stayed at the Goose Creek cabins at the other end of Wolf Pen. Decent enough place, and the 3 night weekday special could not be beat.

A vision through all new windows in the whole building,,, I looks like Bill is bringing back the look of Granny's Farmhouse, Frank's business in that location before he turned it into TWO.

I looked at Goose Creek when it came up for sale last year as a new spot for TWO.. Sort of the same situation, the old man who ran it died and the family that inherited it wants to cash out and sell it and all the attached property, somewhere north of a half mill IIRC. More than I can afford!

Purple VX with Givi's be me...

Just found this thread. Great news here. TWO closed its doors when I stopped riding up there. Now it will open again, when I will be a frequent in the area again. Awesome coincidence.

Did the previous owners keep the rights to the T.W.O. name, or did the new owners just decide to start fresh?
