Boy, that doesn't look like it would do too good in the dirt!!!:eek:

Even my gravel driveway feels like Moab with those 40psi slick tires! But the open road is a joy. A few of us rode to Lake Tahoe yesterday for Lunch and a ride around the lake. So happy to live so close to such a fun, beautiful place. Going camping there next week. :cool:

Glad you enjoyed Lake Tahoe. The last time we were there, about maybe 7-8 years ago or more, during July I think. We rode our Goldwing from Ramona CA to there. We decided to take a day and ride around the lake 'cause we'd never done it and it was new. What a serious mistake! Nothing but traffic, almost the entire 360 degrees around that lake. And, road repair/construction about 1/2 way around it. Stop-go-stop-go-stop-go-stop go...…

About a zillion cars and people everywhere. We tried several times to stop some place and admire the shore line. Almost a complete shutout. We finally found one spot, 'cause I could stuff that bike in a slot not quite big enough for even a small car. That trip, around that lake, took us every bit of 3 hours, start to finish, back at our hotel, on the south east tip. It's a beautiful place, but, way too crowded for us.

Finished the accessorize section of my TW goal...now need to make it better performing in the dirt, way better. Can barely recognise it"s ability on trails. One step at a time..great info here
That is the most tricked out tdub of all time. You had to spend thousands on accessories. The fabricating skills are outstanding. I can't even tell it was originally a TW200. I really like the headlight and wind-shield! Where did you get them?

Yes, it can get real traffic esp on weekends! I always plan to turn around and head back down toward South Lake if busy - was clear this time around.

If one can't go off-season when the crowds lessen then touring around Lake Tahoe can be fun after hours. Let the moon come up, the dinner time traffic thin and then twist the throttle! By then wind generated waves have died down and a mirror-like lake can reflect the moonlight quite nicely. emerald bay moolight.jpg

Yes, I've ridden around the lake at night while camping at Nevada Beach, sweater weather and so beautiful. All the best view spots are wide open, on a moon night it is incredible!
