    First TDUB in Mongolia?

    Hello TW Fans!

    Look at the member map; I am quite alone out here in the land of Ghengis! So, the cargo company is set. Gonna drop the $$ in their office in UB tomorrow, and with some luck, I'll be riding the first Mongol TW by late March (weather permitting). I'll likely get her here long before that, but there's no winter riding here unless you enjoy -40 C
    Anyway, just thought I'd ask you guys to help me make the final call. It's between 3 TDUBs. Here they are:

    I figure I can't go wrong either way, even sight unseen. The 05 is only there because I love that color, but I have paint plans anyway...we'll see

    Thoughts? Thanks.

    Mongol Pete

    I couldn't get your Craigslist link to fly, but there are a number of us who may live close enough to scope out your final selection for you if you put it out there.

    Never mind the bikes. You're in flippin' Mongolia. Some of us would kill to ride Mongolia, even if we had to do so on the indigenous junk. Ride reports!

    This looks like my TDUB. Can't wait to get it here. I'd love any suggestions on mods...especially for heavier loads. Many pics to come, God willing...

    Such a rare bike should not be entrusted to a potentially careless and incompetent shipping company. I think you need someone to accompany it........

    you are going to want a cycleracks rack on it. Motorcycle Accessories in Boise ID | Carrier Racks | Cycle Racks Might as well get it shipped with the bike if you can.


    I had looked into a visit a couple of years ago: http://drivemongolia.com/wp/ seems to be a lot of broken links currently.

    I'm curious to know about shipping a couple of TWs there...looking forward to hearing your experiences.
