    Whoever This Is I Want To Go Ride With Him

    Found this intrepid TWer's video on the internet and was impressed. Thought I would share it :
    Yamaha TW200 the Mountain Goat - YouTube
    2003 TW200 "Betty Boop"
    2006 TW200 "Nibbler", a.k.a. “Mr.Gizmo"

    Cool riding area he has. I posted a comment on his video to see if he is a member here.

    No handguards, no Jimbo, looks stock. I'm thinking maybe he isn't a member. Wait till we get hold of him!!

    I wanted to hollow mod her but she is just too much fun as is.

    Still considering:
    Surfboard rack
    Bar End Mirrors
    Finally picked up a Tdub...

    He does use the proper tool to fix his shift lever. So give him some slack.

    The Admiral should have been there to lend him a hammer. Great video. I would be leaning in to the hillside so far I would have fallen over. lol

    This fella is a lot better trail rider than me that's for sure. Very good riding.

    At least have a small claw hammer like I do (surprised!) to straighten the shifter. No reason to expend extra energy on the trail by removing the dog gone thing!

    ...don't tell anyone this, but you can also use the pliers out of the onboard toolkit to bend the shifter back. ...or even better, the "Cresenthammer". Hammer on one end, cresenty looking thing on the other to help bend the shifter.

    Yesterday I think Bodi mentioned breaking his stock shifter after bending it back. I've bent my shifters multiple times without this happening to me so I guess I've been lucky. FYI, a pair of vice grips work as a field expedient shifter...and footpeg. I know these things through um, experience!

    Proof that stock form is quite capable of performing well. Though it did look like the unit had an aftermarket muffler.
