    I love my TW because....

    This is my first thread and it may seem stupid but why not give all of us a chance to express our love of our TrailWays because I could go on and on and don't want to take away from other's comments. So here goes, others please jump in with your favorite .
    I love my TW because:

    ......it is air cooled so I don't have to worry about boiling, freezing, leaking, steaming, radiators, water pumps, hoses,peeking around radiators to see trail ahead. Just simple reliability.

    ......mild power means bike does not self destruct requiring replacing/ rebuilding parts in less than 100 hrs like other more high strung competition hikes.

    ...apart from a road legal trials bike I had, it's the only off road style bike i've had where it's not been modded, or where i've not had to wear my New Rock platform boots, to reach the floor
    ...4 stroke so just fill with fuel straight from the pump
    ...air cooled so no coolant/rad/hoses to worry about
    ....drum brakes make it easy to clean
    ....the fat tyres are
    that's all I can think of straight off

    I love her because she never bitches unless I leave her in the garage.

    It gives me what I want, but more importantly it gives me what I need.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    Take the battery out and put it on a tender for the winter. That'l shut her up until we get some riding weather.
