    Well my third and probably final T W 200 has found a new home.

    As my legs get worse, it was becoming difficult to safely use the poodle bike.

    I have had a for sale sign on it for a couple of months now and it finally has a new owner.

    I believe he is on this site as he mentioned it. I hope he gets as much fun with it as the rest of you do with yours.

    T-dubs are the most versatile motorcycle I have ever owned and I have owned 48 motorcycles.

    I have to face the future and for me it is my sidecar machines, the legs dictate this.

    I shall look at scooter types as a new sidecar rig since they require no foot controls and with a hack I won't have to put a foot down.

    I shall be spending less time on this site since I no longer have a TW. It has been fun though.

    Come back and share your future creations.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    I can sympathize with your condition (since I suffer from neuropathy in my legs) and want to wish you all the best.



    Have you looked at those Suzuki Burgmans 650cc?



    DMC has sidecar modifications for that scooter.

    Best of luck, sounds like you are accepting what comes which is (to me) more important than what actually happens....

    GRAMMAR AND SPELLING NAZI ALERT!



    Illegitimi non carborundum est.



    "Don't let the bastards grind you down."



    Lots of 650 Burgman Sport Scooter hacks around. Excellent power characteristcs for hack duty. Beat the heck out of an overpriced Hurley tricycle.



    Anywho, it may be possible to register a custom trike on DOT wheeler tires for your dualsport fix. You certainly have the abilities to make it happen.

    Presently still getting along with my Honda 750 hack machine and DR650 off road hack machine.

    They are big enough that I can up shift with my heel but I will probably modify for a hand shifter.

    650 Burgman is neat but I don't fit on it, it is too small. Not enough knee room.

    Met a guy in a bike shop today who was missing both legs below the knee, I never asked what he did with them or if he still rode but he was talking bike and I hope you continue to do so with us Phelonius Ride on,
