    Hey, guys! Remember me? After trying in vain / half-heartedly sell the bike this summer, I've decided to keep it for the time being. I want to make a couple more modifications (namely, add turn signals) and undo others (starting with replacing the rear Blaster shock with my OEM shock).

    So, tonight I swapped shocks. I have a 5-year old now and I thought that this bike would be much more approachable for backyard lap ridding with the original shock. Plus, there is just something so right, and so easy, about the original suspension. I might get some black fork boots, and I'm not sure I like the big chrome headlight anymore. We'll see what the winter brings!

    hey catamount,

    missed this last post of yours by several months... yours was one of the first full build threads, and still one of the best. i'm glad you ended up keeping you bike, that enables future posts of your continued mods and adventures.

    thanks for the vicarious inspiration and popcorn consumed.

    ps: always meant to ask: are there lots of çuçuarana in your area, hence your name?

    Hey Joe! Vermont used to have them (some think we still do), and they are the mascot of our state university.

    Hi Catamount, just finished reading your build thread. Great write-up, thank you for posting!

    I just picked up a 2013 tw200, "mostly" for my kids to learn on. 😉 They've been blasting around on a Honda z50r, then a Yamaha ttr90 and Honda xl100s.

    My son is turning 12 this month, and my daughter is 15 already! Man how time flies; she'll be riding and exploring with me next summer!

    My advice: keep the bike! The years fly by and you will be kicking yourself if you let it go!

    Also, suggestion for next mod? Foot pegs in front of the engine. My 4 year old rides (only on trails, of course) in front of me on my dr650 and holds onto the middle of the handle bars. Right now he puts his feet on top of mine, but that'll be my next mod: a good place for him to put his feet!

    Cheers!
