Just purchased a 2016 t-dub for in-town and weekend trail riding (46 miles as of today). Hoping to learn all the tricks from the old jedi masters in the forum. I live near San Rafael CA. Need to research some good Tdub accessible camping / fishing spots for my first tour. My stock rear rack should arrive today. However, I just read in the owners manual not to put more than 7lbs on a rear rack. Cheers! -Brad
Welcome to the forum Bclark and congrats on your new purchase! Very nice looking bike and just wait till you see where that little bike will take you. There have been a few vehicle purchases I have made and later wished I didn't, but never with the TW, you have one of the best bikes on the market (at least in our opinioin!). Look forward to future write ups on your travels.
2009 TW200, Jimbo shield, 47&55T rear with DID chain, Maxxis Ceros Rear, Kendra 270 front, extended swing arm, 1"Risers, Rear rack, Raised front fender, XOG GPS.
You've made two great decisions recently! Most importantly, purchasing your new Moto. Secondly, joining this forum.
The times you'll have with this new purchase will be unending, it really is a fun - and nearly indestructible little bike.
Howdy from north of you!
Hey!! Where's the NorCal Boys? I know they will help you if you need help and probably drag you along on some very nice rides too!!

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Welcome Bclark, nice ride. I'm sure You'll want to read up on the carb adjustment and jetting threads. It's probably seems a little cold blooded. Maybe one of the best and most noticeable adjustments you can do. Then, a way to transport that little mule to a national forest, where these bikes really shine.
A hitch carrier should do fine, I'm in the Modesto area so the Stanislaus national forest is my main destination.
