    Hello to all you Tdubber's!! I am a new member, and a new Tdubber.

    I am picking up my new 2019 TW200 next week. Very excited to be joining the Tdub club!! Been riding the trails this past summer up here in Michigan on a Chinese Hawk 250, and I loved it...so much so that I decided to step up to the king of trail riding, and motocamping: the venerable Yamaha TW200.

    Put on some handguards and a new front tire as soon as you can. I have a feeling you're going to be using that bike!!

    The stock front tire will leave you in the dirt, and I don't mean above it riding smoothly.

    Welcome welcome.

    Since you're trail riding, definitely get handguards and a good skid-plate—pretty much everyone gets the Ricochet skid plate, as it's very thick aluminum... the stock one won't survive or protect much in real trails situations.

    The front tire certainly has it's issues, and I have felt it slide out under me plenty of times. With that said, if you're paying attention, it's really going to be fine initially. I will definitely be updating to the Shinko 241 when I am ready to buy new tires. If you have the $$, it wouldn't be bad to update right away, but I don't think it's a must.

    Good luck, have fun, send pics when you've got it!
