Well folks, I picked up my youngest sons TW on Friday and have ridden it a few times. I must say, it produced many grins from me. I do find that the steering is a bit strange at low speed, ( I've not been over 25mph yet) but, I attribute it to the massive front tire. I have never had a bike that had such a big tire in relation to the amount of power that it has. Anyway, I can't post any pictures yet because my camera is on the fritz. I do have my first stupid question though( please bear with me as I am a newb). What the hell was Yamaha thinking when they forgot the kickstarter! Is the brownout voltage for the CDI so high that they figured if the starter wouldn't turnover that you shouldn't be able to ride this thing? I'm sure you guys have heard this countless times and I apologize beforehand for asking something that I should have known beforehand! Overall, I really dig this bike! (Is dig still acceptable these days?).
