Gentlemen, (I use that term loosely). It seems to me that most of us or a lot of us that have Tw's and enjoy them like we do, have climbed the ladder of starting with small bikes to learn on and graduated to the large, powerful road bikes that can really haul butt. As time has progressed in our love of bikes, we have found the TW200 to be a fulfilling, all around enjoyable, versatile bike. I believe this regression back to the proud TW has humbled all of us in some way or another. That step alone will instill some "Gentlemen" into us. I too enjoy this forum, the large variety of knowledge that is share so freely, and how devote the members are to this 200cc motorcycle.

While moving both of my parts motors I noticed that both are broken in the area of the kick start shaft. I can think of 2 obvious causes. First a crash. Second an overly aggressive Hulk kicking away. Is there a problem? And maybe this is why Yamaha discontinued the kick starter?
Hi, I've been reading up about available, or lack of, tire choices and had settled on the shinko 241 to change out the deathwing, which has already got me both on n off road 🤬 problem is I live in Spain. Nobody stocks them here but I did find another 2 European stockists but they both can only...
So, about that snow...Tell me I ain't going coco for cocoa puffs
Not being able to ride is killing me
Tucked away and keeping warm but I'd rather be riding

I am looking at the manracks and cycleracks rear racks for my newly bought 2015 tw. I want to be sure that neither of them will interfere with having a passenger on back. I just want to ride my two kids around in the woods but I just don’t want the bars to get into there butt or interfere with...
Last year I picked up a couple used TWs ('93 & '99) for a couple grand. I only got so lucky on the price because one had been converted into a very pretty cafe racer with a sexy looking purple windscreen and the other had been physically abused.
I've been slowly fixing them up so they aren't...
