    Hello fellow Tdub enthusiasts!



    I figured I'd start a build thread for my project.



    I came about owning a TW200 in an unusual way.. I have riden dirt bikes since I was a child, within the past couple years I got excited about dual sport riding. I am a big guy, 6'5" and 260lbs. I own a very nice Husaberg 570cc dual sport bike and I love it! I built a trailer to pull behind my Husaberg so I could carry gear without adding racks to my bike. I then started building these trailers to sell. Long story short, a potential customer really wanted a trailer for his TW200 but he lived clear across the country. I ended up buying a TW just to build a trailer hitch for it for my dual sport trailers.



    It turns out that I absolutely love this little bike! I'm sure I look like a circus bear on a minature tricycle, but I don't care, I can't help but grin every time I ride it. It is the little bike that can! I'm keeping the Tdub and turing it into a custom machine to fit me!



    Here's a picture on the day I bought it:







    Of course my first mod was to add a trailer:







    Here are some hitch shots:

    The next mod was to help me be more comfortable on the little bike. Some taller bars and risers. I went with Fly Aero Bars and a Powermadd 2" Riser.







    I was able to keep my stock cables even with the raised bars.



    I also added Cycra Handguards to keep brush from hitting my hands while I blaze through the trails:

    Next, I made a bracket to put a supermoto fender up front:











    I work at ProCycle, we specialize in the Big DR650. I fell in love with the TW and asked my boss to let me start building a page to support the TW200. He said "Do it!" so I've started building a page to help other owners find parts to customize their Tdub.



    see the page here: ProCycle

    Today my son and I took the TW out for a ride! The little bike pulled us and a trailer up and over some local hills without missing a beat. It's so impressive that this little bike can carry us down the highway at 55mph and then climb up hills like a billy goat!















    I broke the rear tail light today, so the next mod will be a nice and tidey LED rear tail light!



    Get out there, Stay out there!

    Nice. How does one go about purchasing a trailer, I might ask?
    "What's 'dude'? Is that like 'dude ranch'?"

    "Dude means nice guy. Dude means a regular sort of person."

    Very nice. Thanks for showing us that. Also, thanks for the work on the ProCycle site. I like the weld on foot peg extensions (among other things).



    It's does me good to read about your enthusiasm for the bike. It makes me remember why it is good to get out there.

    So that Mr. Bracket does not have to do any self promotion, here is the web site for the Moto-Mule trailer. http://www.moto-mule.com/

    In the near future I'm going to make new footpeg brackets that will allow you to mount newer Yamaha style footpegs to the TW. That will open up the options for footpegs big time! I like the ProMoto Billet footpegs myself, but there are tons options out there, even pivot pegs! Basically, any peg that fits the YZ/WR 250/450

    I will do that soon for the 2000 and older bikes. It might be a while on the newer bikes, as I don't own one of those.... yet....



    I'm keeping my engine, jetting, airbox, and exhaust stock for now.. We have a dyno here, so I'm going to create a baseline with my stock bike and run each mod on the dyno to get some good data.
