Anyone read ADVMoto magazine? the Sept/Oct issue had an article titled " Molly's TW200 Trans-Lab Adventure - Living it up on the Trans-Lab" nice write up minus a couple of the authors veiled cheap shots at the TW as an adventure bike...



To quote him..."Yamaha TW 200's are small, underpowered, and not known for long range fuel capacity..." not untrue, but not needed in my opinion, with that aside I thought her adventure was worth a read if you get a chance. She had quite the ride and some good fortune along the way.



One thing that was noted in the article is that she had her fuel tank "modified" by a local welder friend....it looks to me in the pictures that the guy cut out the sides of the tank and welded larger ones in place, giving her an additional 1 gallon fuel capacity per the article.



I would reccomend if you get a chance to pick it up to do so....always nice to see a write up on "our" bikes.

I haven't heard of this magazine either but I think I might go ahead and get a subscription. Looks like it would be a good read.

I got mine in the mail but had not read it yet. Thanks for bringing it up. I believe you can get an Online subscription for like $8 a year. I still like paper and I think it was $28 which also includes electronic access as well.



Here is the ADV Moto Site

The heart of the story is that her TW got stolen mid trip.


That was the "heartache" of the trip.



The response she received from the local people is what I think of as the "heart".

It is a very good magazine and I highly recommend it.



One major advantage is that when you get a subscription you also get access to ALL previous issues to download.

So, for the price of admission you get several YEARS of the magazine.

Molly is a member here. Hasn't posted much since her TW was stolen, but if you look up her posts I think there links to some news stories about her ride, etc. Years ago she popped in with a few pics of her bike and that cool tank.

I stand corrected!
