    2006 Fully Adventurized T-Dub in Seattle

    Just listed this on Craigslist Seattle:

    When I went looking for the perfect dual-sport ride, I considered all the usual suspects, high strung, big horsepower, long-legged beasts with which to whip the earth. Instead, I got the smallest, lightest bike that could traverse the globe: the Mighty TW200! This bike goes anywhere, and crawls over anything. But after three years, I am selling the T-Dub. This particular specimen is the most amazing T-Dub on the planet. It has been my daily driver for three years. It is schizophrenic: both urban city commuter, and fully adventurized off-road mule. This bike has been the most amazing, go anywhere, do anything motorcycle anyone has ever seen. Pavement, gravel, dirt, freeway (yes, in the right-hand lane) all day ride it until you drop. It has been highly modified, meticulously maintained, and NEVER let me down. We have ridden the WABDR, many miles of dirt and gravel, and even completed a thousand mile loop around the SE Oregon/NW Nevada desert. She’s forded the Owyhee River, traversed miles of primitive roads, and run the Alvord and Black Rock Playas. I have just completed a full service, removed the stickers, and she’s ready for YOUR adventure. What makes this T-Dub so amazing? Here’s her story: The mods:

    i wasn't as hip to the color scheme, but appreciate the personal touches, including the bottle opener on the top case.... i might spill something if i always had to reach down to my foot peg.

    you've put a lot of thought and work into that tdub.

    An adventure bike for sure.

    I keep thinking of this though. TW could be a good augment.

    Well done and nothing a gallon of camo paint won't fix. Up here in the NY mountains I prefer to be heard and not seen!

    Good luck with your sale and I know you spent lots of time and dollars rigging this beast to be all she could be.

    The color scheme makes me think "Emergency" Vehicle - I see fire trucks and ambulances with similar safety patterns. Rescue TDUB!

    Love it or hate it - at least a good chance they'll see you. My hazard yellow Wolfman bags and Hi Vis green helmet pale in comparison.

    GLWS!
