    Welcome CubbyChowder!

    Do you have a link for that headlight, or at least can you tell what size it is?

    Sure thing, for some reason this forum won't allow me to post links since my post count is so low. Here is the name of the listing which you can copy/paste in the eBay search bar: 7" Custom Side Mount Motorcycle Headlight w/ Grill - Matte Black - Clear

    I would also recommend visiting that sellers page (4into1motorcycleparts) and checking out all the other styles/finishes of headlights they offer, they have some really cool options on there!

    My maiden voyage with the TW200 was an absolute success! I am in love with this bike.

    Spent a few days riding around in Sierra National Forest near Shaver Lake. Mostly off road but some road riding as well getting to different areas/trailheads (dual sports are a beautiful thing).

    The most technical/challenging for me was the Bald Mountain trail where we encountered some snow patches, big deep puddles that looked deceivingly shallow and some steep rutted out bouldery climbing and the bike handled it all like a champ! I laid it down a few times but that's because I'm still a beginner.

    Me in my element! My helmet is blocking the big dumb grin on my face:



    Some pictures from Bald Mountain trail, unfortunately I didn't take too many pictures of the trail itself, was too busy trying to get up it!





    You can see the bike lurking in the shadows, ready to take on another snow patch (my first time riding in snow, it was definitely tricky):



    Hit some gravel around a turn and my bike washed out from under me, luckily the only casualty was my clutch lever which completely snapped off. Fortunately, my dad's buddy is prepared for every possible emergency and had some vice grips handy! Clutch lever restored:



    My awesome dad and I got to spend some quality time together, it was our first time riding together! We had a really fun weekend:



    Caught an amazing sunset on the ride back to our home base:



    Lil' Chunk did awesome! He's ready for more adventures. But first I need a new chain/sprockets and want to install a beefier skid plate and bash bars.



    Thanks for reading!

    Started mocking up my new fuel tank this evening. This is a 2.4 gallon universal tank from eBay, so slightly more fuel capacity than the stock 1.8 gallon TW200 tank. I actually really like the shape and detail of the tank and think it suits the bike nicely. It is requiring some pretty extensive modification to fit properly though which I will go over in more detail at a later time once it's all finished.

    Also received a few parts in the mail which will be going on shortly. New sprocket set with x-ring chain (kept stock 14/50 gearing) and a Ricochet skid plate!




    Rode for 3 full days last weekend in and around Yosemite with my good buddy Joel. Rode a ton of fire roads and some single track stuff. Hit a bunch of cool spots, it was super fun.

    Joel was excited:



    Yosemite Valley was insane! So much water. The Merced River was pumping and all the falls were going off. Really cool relaxing day riding around in the Valley and jumping in the freezing ass river:



    Rode up to Signal Peak fire lookout which made for some awesome views:

    Hi Cubby,

    Cool bike!

    I really like the look of the high mounted stock fender. Was it difficult to attach?

    Thanks!

    When I bought the TW200 it came with the ProCycle supermoto high mount fender kit installed. I liked the high mount style but didn't care for the edgy shape of the supermoto fender itself. Luckily I got the stock fender in with the deal and was able to modify that to work with the high mount bracket. I just drilled some holes in the metal bracket on the fender and cut the mounting tabs off the sides that mount it to the forks (not entirely necessary but just makes it look better). I then rounded off the front of the fender just cuz it looks cool. Took it through snow, mud, puddles, etc and it worked great!
