    Hi Everyone,

    Just found this forum to read up on my new TW200, have lots of reading to do

    This bike is the first one I have owned since I was a kid, and am excited to get back into riding. I had couple bikes as a kid on my grandparents farm, First one was a 1974 CT70. Loved the bike even though it was goofy looking, but it was bullet proof. Second bike was a Kawasaki 100 trail bike.

    So after 25 years being away from riding, I am looking forward to getting back at it, and it looks like I picked the right bike to do that.

    Welcome Margo. You sure did pick the right bike. I just picked up a 95 2 weeks ago. Looking forward to a break in the cold to go over it. There is a huge amount of information on this site. What makes it even better, is I have found everyone here to be extremely helpful. You are going to love your bike. Rubber side down, Dave

    Hi fellow Albertan's

    Question to all Canucks out there, I read all the discussion of changing out the front tire, and have decided to go with the Kendra 270 5.10 18, I have searched for this and have not been able to find a canadian retailer. Found some US sites that will ship to Canada, but the shipping costs are $60 on average. ANyone locate this tire in Canada? Also, from what I read this shows as a rear tire, assume from all the discussion that it will work on front. just want to verify as I am new to bike tires.



    Any info is appreciated



    Margo
