Had one in 89, in WA State, placed 3rd in 250 class in a 100 mi enduro, main advantage points were a drop off with several riders wondering how to get down, TW did just fine, they said "oh, thats how". Second was a mud crossing over a stream that turned into a mud bog, TW just motored thru, third was a 6 ft waterfall, again with lots of riders stuck, the TW just blew by.

After 20+ years, and 65 years old, I have new one, and plan on exploring ghost towns and mines here in AZ. A 15 tooth countershaft sprocket helps for highway use, with little effect off-road. A JC Whitney trunk handles most gear. Miss the kickstarter and split left case covers, for easy sprocket change.

Toned down the paint job, and carry CB, cell phone, and ariel flares, as well as water & spare gas--of course a first aid kit with extras.

Heard years ago that some japanese guy rode a TW to the north pole.
Enjoy

Third on a TW, huh? That's not too shabby!
