    Who’s the biggest TW rider out there?

    Just wondering if anybody out there is pushing the TW limits with me..? I am a long time rider both dirt and street and have always been the one of the biggest guys on a dirt bike. I am new to thee TW scene and love how fun these bikes are to throw around both on and off road. Until now I have been riding my wife’s 07 and she is tired of sharing so I hooked up with RockyTFS and purchased his 2010 from him. Now that I have my own I am going to put the heavy springs all around and have to raise the handlebars. Is there anything else my fellow Apes have found to be worth the money on these bikes? BTW I am 6’6” and weigh in at 330, I promise it’s knda comical watching me ride these things but their so damn fun it’s worth the humiliation. If you don’t believe me ask rockyTFS, he got to experience it first hand.

    I am about 5'10" and weigh about 150 lbs. I used to weigh in at around 210 to 215 but my cardiologist said I had to lose weight or I would soon die. The good news is my blood pressure plummeted as did my heart rate and my TW doesn't bottom out anymore and I am alive. The bad news is I am hungry all the time and people think I look to skinny and I had to buy a lot of new clothes.

    I sold a TW to a logger / hunter in Lewis County WA who is 400lbs dry w/o gear and he hauls quartered animals out on a cyclerack routinely

    the main thing I remember is he ran a 70 tooth rear sprocket for the narrow, muddy single track trails he hunts

    At 6-6, 330, no one in his right mind would every trivialize you on or off your motorcycle.

    God made mud. God got lonesome. So God said to some of the mud, "Sit up!" "See all I've made," said God, "The hills, the sea, the sky, the stars." And I was some of the mud that got to sit up and look around. Lucky me, lucky mud. I, mud, sat up and saw what a nice job God had done.

    I'm glad you love the bike. They are mules and can haul a load. I'm sure this is like a minibike to you but they are fun and street legal.

    I remember LT saying he was a rather large fellow so maybe he has some competition for you. I think he made a lot of donut runs on his '87 and still claimed it was THE fastest TW in the west.

    I wished I had your stature back when I drove a school bus. lol Middle school kids seem to have a bit more respect for a big guy. I never got to race LT, but my '87 is the fastest stock TW in the world. lololol btw, I'm six ft, 220lbs.

    I bet the guy who bought your awesome '87 is really confused every time he passes a Crispy Cream and it wants to steer him in. I hope he does not live in your town because the bike knows all the routes to the nearest donut shops.

    Merry Christmas to all and a safe and very prosperous New Year - MAGA!
