    Hi Everyone..New to TW's

    Hi everyone, including the TW guys on ADV who gave me some useful advice and pointed me this way.

    Itís not been easy to find a decent TW200 here in France, plenty of 125ís but the 200 is as they say like rocking horse poo, apparently only 67 were ever importedÖ. In all Iíve been looking for a half decent TW200 for at least 2 years; BUT, at last I now have one in the bike shed. And itís the model with the kick and button too, low miles (4500) and the original tools & tyres, manuals etc. all in all Iím a happy bunny. This 94 TW is about to become my lightweight go anywhere and camp bike, so anticipating many adventures together. Iíll be making up lightweight racks etc. etc. so will post up progress as it goes. Gave her a good service and a general tidy up today, then went for a little ride. I was surprised how well she gets along for a 200 single. Will probably stick with the standard gearing as it's a little under geared on the road but thinking about right on the steep trails.

    Thanks to the guys who put this forum together and maintain it.

    Welcome Potski!

    That's a neat little trailer, room for a couple more TW's ! Nice tow vehicle too, what is it? Do you have any areas where you can ride off-road nearby?

    Hi TW-Brian.

    The 4x4 is a Land Rover 110. Near the house there are plenty of trails; but, I do 4x4 tours for a living so the bike may well get to go far and wide.

    Cheers

    Your TW should be a perfect companion vehicle for your tours. Have fun!

    Very nice! Heck if you got a motorcycle carrier to fit into your receiver hitch, you could take the TW with you on off-road trips and make a base camp from which to explore.
