    Is a TW right for me

    Thinking of getting a TW to putt around off road on but don't know if it work for my size and age. I am 65, 6ft 3 and weigh 240lbs. Rode DT1s back in the 70s. And recently a Goldwing. Would mostly be putting around in the desert. Thanks for the help.

    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    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.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    It would be a perfect bike for you. You'll need a more comfortable seat anyway so get the tall seat concepts seat and you'll be stylin and comfortable.

    Welcome. The TW kind of reminds me of a mini-bike but for adults. User friendly for the whole family.

    I was 6' 5" and 275 lb. when I was riding my TWs. My physical size was not a problem. I often put in 200 plus miles a day on TWs. Just ride it and ignore the size factor.
    Don't expect to pass any other bikes for speed. Two are not known for speed, but they will give a lot of smiles per gallon.
