I'm looking at buying a TW200 and I'd like to be able to take my wife with me at times - any ideas for some kind of backrest I could put on a TW? Sorry for the weird request!

Don't know I've heard of a backrest, you could fit a top box but then you run out of room for a passenger on a bike this small.



On the luggage issue there is all kinds of options, hard/soft, tail, tank, side, back. Everything from costly detachable aluminum to milk crates.

I had a gas powered pressure washer (the kind with the "dolly" like handles and wheels to transport it) on the rear rack of my bike once. So It looked like I had a 5 ft sissy bar on the bike. I got some looks, that's for sure.... I'm with PJ, you could put a crate or something on the back but you wouldn't have much room for your woman. I throw my lunch box on the back of my bike in the morning and there's not much more room for anybody else (passenger wise, that is)

I currently have an action packer on custom mounts. It sits too far forward for a passenger. I have a diamond tread plate that I am going to use to offset the box back about 8 or more inches. That will allow a passenger and give me more room for bungee strapping my tent, chair, & bedroll behind me when I solo camp.

Well guys - here's what I came up with and it looks like it should work. For $6 I bought a hard plastic battery case with snap on lid at WalMart, strapped it tightly onto the back, then strapped a small cushion to that. She can't lean hard against it of course but it give her a little comfort - and my babe is worth it! : ) Thanks guys for your suggestions!
