    So the 'TW' in TW200 stands for?

    Trail Wing? I know that's the tires that Bridgestone makes for the TW200 but is it literally the same name?

    Trail Way?

    Other?

    I've always assumed it was a play on their "BW" (Big Wheel), and for a street legal trail bike, they called it a "TW" (Trail Wheel?).

    I think that this is the only year that Trailway actually shows up on the bike.

    I want to believe it stands for:
    Two wheels
    Tiny wheel
    Too weak
    But it actually stands for Trailway as others already mentioned
