    Just for fun

    You are head of the design team at Yamaha. You have been tasked to build a sister TW. One that has new technology built on the same frame. Go with it let's play.

    My start would be more horse power. 250 cc little larger tank to offset distance between fills. Electronic ignition. Earth tone paint job

    Already done. Tdub2. 267cc, EFI with Zuess fasteners to access air filter, stainless exhaust tuned for a wide, friendly powerband, 6 speed, 5 disc clutch, kick start, +2 inch aluminum bars, gel grips, custom seat with gel inserts, tunable shock, extended swingarm, longer fork tubes, tweeked fork valving, double front discs, single rear disc, 530 o-ring chain, 4 gallon gas tank, all LED lights with brake light flasher, hand guards, grip heaters, maintenance free iron phosphate battery pack, rear rack with auxiliary fuel tank, 3 large tool tubes inside folding soft bag racks, ... . Not "earth tone" because I'm not trying to intimidate or hide from anybody., and the critters always hear you coming.

    No such thing as the "perfect" man or woman. We are all messed up. After all, we are products of our environments, and since you are a part of the environment, it's all your fault, so put your big kid panties on and tough it out. However, Tdub2 is getting pretty close to being the perfect motorcycle for me. Not to happy with the taller ride height, thinking about having some thicker soles added to a new pair of boots for winter. Maybe drill a new hole for the lower shock mount and slide the forks up in the triple trees a couple inches. She'll still have 12 inches of clearance, an inch more than stock.

    Mine comment was a joke. Guess it should have had . Included.
    My TW is growin too.
    The 225 changed seat so it's taller. And new tires added a little to.
    My TW is perfect for me. We both have flaw's. Both are still being tweaked by their Master.

    TWs don't have flaws. TWs have quirks.
